3D Altered Beast Roaring On To Nintendo 3DS Next Week

By Spencer . May 22, 2013 . 1:18am

imageSega is continuing their series of 3D enhanced games with Altered Beast. This is the Genesis version and not the arcade version so it won’t have the silly ending sequence with a dude taking off the beast costume in front of a director’s clapboard.


3D Altered Beast supports local co-op if both players own the game and has a new "whimsical transformation" mode too. Sega hasn’t said what actually happens in the bonus mode.


M2 added the usual features, stereoscopic 3D with options for depth or zoom, button remapping, a tube TV display mode, and the ability to play the Japanese ROM or the international release. The 3D effects in 3D Sonic the Hedgehog were pretty weak so I’m more hesitant about picking this up since it’s another Genesis port. 3D Altered Beast comes out in Japan on May 29 as a 600 yen ($6) eShop download.

    Played the genesis collection version, was so freaking bad ass. Nice to see this classic live on.

    Why does Japan get Sega 3D Virtual Console but not USA.

    • Armane

      It’s the Ages 2500 series all over again.

  • Kintaro

    If it’s like sonic 1 in “3D” it won’t be that good IMO, and..not to be a troll but this game hasn’t aged well and the gameplay is very frustrating

  • Pockystix

    as long as it’s not THAT 3D altered beast

    you know the one. . .

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      Am I the only one that didn’t mind it? It’s not good (Specially if you play another ultra gory beat em up like the Splatterhouse remake) but it’s very entertaining.

    oh i’ve ever played this game before..
    you can power up into mythical beasts like werewolf, gargoyle, etc from a normal human..
    If I remember, this game’s original name is Juuouki..
    remind me of Juuouken a.k.a. beast king fist..
    ohh well, the werewolf attacks with a punch resembling to juuouken..
    so actually juuouken was inspired from this..
