Sonic Blast Is Another Game Gear Title Headed To 3DS Virtual Console


Europe will see another Game Gear title released for the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console this week—Sonic Blast, which has nothing to do with the similarly-titled Sonic 3D Blast.


Sonic Blast lets you play as Sonic and Knuckles, and gives Sonic a new ability in the form of a double jump. Sonic Blast was the last Sonic game released for the Game Gear, and Europeans will be able to grab it this Thursday for €5 (or £4.50).
