Gotta Go Fast To Grab These Sega 3D Remaster Games For Nintendo 3DS

By Spencer . December 15, 2013 . 1:30pm

image Sega gave Siliconera a bunch of codes for the 3D remaster games. We are going to give out codes for 3D Sonic the Hedgehog, 3D Galaxy Force II, 3D Altered Beast, and (my favorite on the list) 3D Ecco the Dolphin. Games are first come first served and what game you get is a surprise. Here we go with the giveaway!












A046N8WF1FGD2W1D – Last one!


These Nintendo 3DS codes are for the North American eShop. Please post in the comments if you use a code. We’ll update the post with more codes throughout the day.

  • Chaos_Knight

    Damn, already been used.

  • Kuwaii .

    A04777PF1U3MVF3F taken, Ecco the Dolphin.

    • Wait what


  • Shane Guidaboni

    I hate posts like these! I never get to them in time.

    • Gyro Zeppeli

      I don’t mind that part, but I hate how long it takes for the post to be updated with new codes.

      • If we put all of the codes up at once people would complain that they weren’t there first.

        If we ask people to send in entries like art, people complain that they can’t draw.

        If we ask people to send in email entries to us people complain because they’re unlucky. No matter what we do someone is going to complain, which sucks really because I’d like to do more giveaways and just by chance more people would be able to get stuff.

        • Gyro Zeppeli

          I get what you mean, but wouldn’t a few comments complaining be preferred over people wasting the site’s bandwidth with constant refreshing?

          • Not really because the only solution to not having complaints is not having giveaways. And I think if that happens everyone loses.

          • just get a wordpress plugin for a raffle

          • gr3yfxx

            Businesses give out prizes as a promotion, so it’s not ever wholly a measure of goodwill. Sure, it can be done as an effort to reward patrons for their continued loyalty, but it’s also a means of attracting new frequent visitors with the promise of something shiny if they come often enough. Besides, it ignores basic human psychology to think that people aren’t going to complain: if you don’t get something that other people get, it’s ALWAYS going to be disappointing and it’s ALWAYS going to feel unfair, no matter the circumstances. Instead of getting upset and complaining to your readers that your unhappy with them (which is NEVER a good move) be happy people are reading, and encourage them to keep reading so they have a chance at winning the next promotion. You’re never going to make everyone happy, so just count the people you do make happy as a win.

          What you could do is give a kind of heads up. I love Siliconera, and go to this site frequently, so I wouldn’t mind it if they had kind of a “Stay tuned for something exciting!” announcement.

          • And when we say “stay tuned for something exciting” people complain that we hyped something up that wasn’t exciting. Also, I did give a heads up too in the Open Thread.

        • The email entries thing frankly sounds more fair than first-come-first-serve. It will diminish the number of lurkers who get the games, it doesn’t exclude people based on schedule and time zone, and frankly it’s no more luck-based than this way of doing things.

          • Alright fine, we’ll do the next giveaway by email, but usually email giveaways result in literally thousands of emails that someone has to sort through to pick winners. Instead of it just being pure luck, I’m going to add a twist to it.

    • PreyMantis

      I feel your pain, bro…

    • You know what I hate, people complaining when we’re giving stuff to our readers. :P

      • Shane Guidaboni

        I wasn’t aware of the storm I caused by posting this. Just wanted to jump in and say I have no trouble with Siliconera giving away free things. I’m not actually upset over this – my post was more hyperbole than actual frustration, however it is a little annoying that the only people that will get access to these codes are the people that happen to be browsing the net at the right time.

        Atlus was doing something similar over the weekend on Facebook. One code at a specific time and you had to be lucky enough to be checking your Facebook and have your system’s digital game store of choice ready for use before anyone else.

  • Wait what

    Aw, I think I might have been able to get this one but I hadn’t been on my eShop for awhile (no money, December sucks) and it made me restart my 3DS and then link to my Club Nintendo. I never win stuff. :(
    Congrats to the winner, though.

  • Suicunesol

    Damn, ecco’s gone. Wish you’d give more than one code for that game. That’s the only one I really want to try.

  • Inuyakira

  • Wait what

    Well, Sonic was the one I wanted, oh well. Congrats to whoever got it.

  • Guest

    Who lurked A046N8WD25UH4J8G?

  • Rokubato

    A046N8WD25UH4J8G was used….

    • DNAd

      Yeah, it was Altered Beast, I got it but while i was typing that i had grabbed and it, someone else started the download on it which gave me a “code is already used” message

  • MelonLizard

    Since they gave out 4 codes already, does that mean the giveaway is over? (I thought anyone still waiting for more codes might like to know ^u^)

  • DNAd

    A046N95X1PQJF4HH used, 3D Sanic, thanks!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    crap….I missed it

  • Kaetsu

    I thought this was just a post to say that the Sega 3D Classics came out so I just ignored it. Damn…

  • abowlofpetunias

    I got A046N8WE0RCXCYB3. Was 3D Altered Beast. Thanks, everybody, especially to Siliconera. :)

  • mike

    A04777VJ075A7LLY is 3D galaxy force 2. yeehee!

  • DarkDragoon

    I scored A046N95J30G6WPE. It was 3D Sonic. Thanks for the giveaway Siliconera!

  • Seven of The Scions

    Okay, I’ll try if miracles still happens…

    • Seven of The Scions


      It doesn’t work!


  • RedCap

    Well, is that it? Or are there still some more codes left?

  • GaiunxWolfenX

    well i could not get one, i was planning on buying at least four of them with the last 26 dlrs i have for the year anyways, congratz to the people that got the codes in time, maybe you could leave a opinion on the games so people that are still indecisive about buying them or not can get another opinion XD. i already have 3D Super Hang On and i have to say it’s a great pass the time, and is recommended to everyone, its Super fun and addictive, specially with the awesome Gyro controls. If you can and love arcade racing games you own it to yourself to buy this great gem from the past, what this game does not have in polygons is compensated with all that it has on fun factor

    • moogle.nine

      I didn’t get a code but I have Space Harrier and Sonic, and they are fantastic. Sonic 3d is definitely the best version of that game. It’s gorgeous. Eventually I hope to get all of these releases….
