Space Harrier Gets Stereoscopic 3D Remake For Nintendo 3DS

spacehSega is making a 3D version of Space Harrier and you don’t need the SegaScope 3D glasses to play it. Gamers reports 3D Space Harrier is coming to Nintendo 3DS. It’s a remake of the original Space Harrier optimized for the 3DS screen with stereoscopic 3D graphics.


Space Harrier II: Space Harrier Complete Collection is also coming to PlayStation 3. The game’s name is kind of confusing since it’s actually a Sega Ages compilation with three titles: Space Harrier (Mark III version), Space Harrier 3D (Mark III version), and Space Harrier II (Genesis version) plus a gallery with arcade flyers. Originally released for PS2, Space Harrier II: Space Harrier Complete Collection is slated for release as a PS2 Classic on November 21 for 800 yen ($10).

    Whoa! I didn’t really discover Space Harrier until until I played it in the virtual arcades in Shenmue II, but man is it awesome. 

    Super stoked a remake is coming to the 3DS! I actually misread and figured it was a coming to the 3D Classics line, but a remake

    Can’t wait!

      It is considered as 3D classics there as other company is also allowed by Nintendo to make the game into 3D classics.^_^

    While I do love me some Space Harrier…

    Please tell me the Planet Harriers code wasn’t lost. Because that’s the one I haven’t had a chance to play.

    I’ll probably pick this up though. I have fond memories of playing Space Harrier on my Turbo Grafx 16.

    • Planet Harriers was really fun. I’d love to play it again. Oddly enough, the only place that ever had it was a random bowling alley near where I lived once.

      If I’m not wrong, planet warriors is in the process of being emulated at least

    I remember playing Space Harrier on my good ol’ Game Gear, more than 15 years ago… I really liked that game (even if I never completed it). I hate Sega for being a bitch with their localizations, but if they do bring this outside Japan I’ll gladly but it.

    Now that we’re getting a Space Harrier remake, what about Panzer Dragoon Saga? Or does GameTap still have the rights? :(

  • Sold!  Need more SEGA classics on eshop.

    Guys. Ya know what this might mean?

    3D After Burner & 3D Outrun.

    I cannot wait to see what other classic games get the 3D treatment.

      Bare Knuckle 3D? Golden Axe 3D? Phantasy Star 3D? “Died due to excitement”^_^

      Mmmm, good point.  Sega’s sprite-scaling games of that era would all be perfect for 3D.  Hang On, Power Drift, Galaxy Force II…  I think Fantasy Zone would look pretty cool in the 3DS “diorama” style 3D too.
