Sega Have A Summer Full Of Game Gear Games For 3DS Virtual Console

By Ishaan . June 8, 2011 . 9:00am

Game Gear games will be available the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console, starting this summer. While none of these games have release dates assigned to them, you’ll be able to grab:



Dragon Crystal


Sonic Drift 2

Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble


The Game Gear version of Shinobi is similar to The Revenge of Shinobi in a lot of respects, except it has a Power Rangers twist to it. In Game Gear Shinobi, you can play as five ninjas — red, yellow, blue, pink and green — each with their own abilities.

    Columns? Wow, so the 3DS is actually getting that one before any Tetris? Anyway, I’d like to try Sonic Triple Trouble.

    I’d also like to see more 3D Classics. You think they are gonna be Nintendo-only?

    • Xevious is Namco, no?

      Sonic Triple Trouble is probably my favorite GameGear game. It’s a very good Sonic game. Like to see it some day too. ^_^ Just glad we’re starting to see more systems on the 3DS though. Hope they keep bringing more systems to the eShop.

    • Last year Nintendo was showing off some other 3D classics, one of which was Mega Man, so hopefully we’ll see some other third parties shortly.

    All I have to say is… come on, Shining Force Gaiden I and II!  And the two Game Gear Phantasy Star Gaiden games!

    Shinobi GG is pretty good though, worth checking out.
