All in all, I think that the 3rd collection is the strongest out of the 3, and I hope we get it (or the triple pack) outside of Japan. Sonic 2, Streets of Rage 2, and Gunstar Heroes alone would make it a must have. The 3D classic series in general seems to be successful enough to keep making them, but I haven't seen any details about how the compilation sold.

As for the 4 newly announced games... I'm of varying opinion. I like the Thunder Force series, but I don't know why they chose Thunder Force III... It's neither the first in the series on Genesis, nor is it the most impressive, Thunder Force IV might be one of the most stunning Genesis games. Then there's Columns... I like puzzle games as much as the next guy, but after Puyo Puyo, I didn't expect another one...

Also! OutRun received an update that adds custom racers from other classic SEGA games (Altered Beast, Shinobi, Streets of Rage, etc). Right now it's only available if you bought the stand-alone eShop version, but hopefully the compilation will receive a patch.

For UKers: Argos has it for £25 http://www.argos.co.uk/product/6014674
Oddly enough can't seem to find it anywhere else like GAME etc so ended up grabbing it at Argos.

There seems to be a reason for this: it's apparently an exclusive. http://www.nintendol...sics_collection

I suspect SoE decided to be conservative with the numbers - a brief conversation with TimmiT hints that the same thing is happening in the Netherlands as well, so I'd guess there's one assigned chain across all of the Europe/Australasia area.

Yeah, here in the Netherlands a lot of stores aren't selling the game. It seems like most of the big stores have it listed on their websites, but don't have it in stock. There are only a couple of online stores that are selling it right now.

Sega 3D Classics Collection - Nintendo 3DS [reviewed]

They fixed the spindash charge sound and the special stage fade flicker.

4.5/5

Tweeted @Sega_Europe with the hashtag as well: https://twitter.com/...910148942774276 It's important to let them know we're getting these.

That said, the saga of getting this! Argos had exactly one copy (I checked the stock checker on my way out to confirm it wasn't just them saying 1 copy for the sake of it, but nope, it was gone) - and thanks to their staffing levels and the car park it took an HOUR just to buy this. It seems every time Sega Europe picks Argos as an exclusive distributor I have issues, did with the Colours pre-order bonuses as well =P

Has anyone taken a look at the ROM patches used for 3D Sonic 1, especially with Spindash and "Japan mode" enabled? Given that ctr from vgmrips was able to apply the patches stored in 3DS RAM to make complete Afterburner II and OutRun ROMs, it's likely that the process will be the same for other M2 releases aswell.

I want to get the first 3D collection bu i already own Fantasy Zone 2 and they said that they were gonna release a standalone Powerdrift with an Allstars racing mode on the Eshop so it makes me worried about buying it. do you guys think it will still be worth it if i own 2 of the games on it already?

Holy cow, I never knew about this. I just quickly tested it on my US copy and it's the same thing there.

I just picked up 3D Sonic 2 while it was on sale, now is it just me or does the "SEGA" cry sound absolutely horrible? It sounds incredibly compressed. The rest of the audio seems fine, but it's a rough start to booting up the game.

Remember when the extra music from the 3DS versions of After Burner and Outrun got ripped for use in emulators?

Well, I just provided the decrypted ROM from the 3DS version to ctr of VGMRips to work his patching magic on Thunder Blade, as that one never got done when After Burner and Outrun was.

https://www.dropbox....11396.ic17?dl=1

A new Z80 sound ROM for Thunder Blade featuring the extended music, for use in MAME/M1/Hoot/whatever you please.

I'm sure the VGMRip guys will log the VGM files at some point too.

It's great to finally have clean playable versions of these, as the ones on the Pony Canyon Galaxy Force/Thunder Blade CD were pretty horrible sounding.

Nice! Have you notified the MAME guys, so that they can include these variations in future releases?

With After Burner and Thunder Blade, as it's a straight replacement of one ROM which replaces the original pieces of music, so those *could* go into MAME, but I'm pretty sure they have a policy where they don't support ROMhacks unless there's evidence they were ever used in the arcade.

The extra music in Outrun would require finding the patches for the 68K ROMS to to add the options on the music selection screen, which hasn't been done, although at a guess it could be possible.

Didn't Cannonball add support for them? Or am I dreaming that?
