3D Sonic the Hedgehog hits 3DS eShop this week

Sonic 1 Title Screen

The original Sonic the Hedgehog game is racing onto the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Europe and the US this Thursday, 5th December – but it’s already been ported to seemingly every gaming system under the sun, so what makes this one noteworthy? Well, this isn’t just your straightforward port, it’s a part of SEGA’s 3D Classics series for the 3DS, enhancing some of their classic games with fancy new stereoscopic visuals. It’s a whole new way to experience the blue blur’s first ever adventure!

3D Sonic the Hedgehog also contains an option to toggle the spin dash on and off, for those wanting either a newer or a more traditional method of play.

The game will cost £4.99 in Europe and $5.99 in the US. Will you be downloading this enhanced version of Sonic’s debut? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Awesome!! This may be my very first eShop purchase~ (Not saying that I’ve never wanted an eShop game, but that I never got money for the 3DS and any of my downloaded stuff is not purchased, it’s free or Club Nintendo orders lol)

  2. I already own this game for roughly 5 other things (6 if I get the Steam version today), whats one more time? Has anyone got any classic games for the 3DS? Does the 3D look good?

  3. My first first day purchase from the eShop and it’s a game that was release two decades ago. Oh well, it’s a game that has aged well and plays well.

  4. Once Nintendo does that system update that brings the money from your Wii U e-Shop to your 3DS e-Shop, I will get the game.

  5. So Sonic The Hedgehog 3D is on Nintendo 3DS is the hit awesome! Also so as Sonic Generation or Sonic Lost World, is the both biggest hit on Nintendo e Shop!
