Since the latest Sonic game, Lost World, wasn’t really a huge success, Sega is going back to the roots and releases a 3D version of the original smash hit Sonic the Hedgehog of which we all have such fond memories and in which we got acquainted with the blue beast. Not sure of the added value, but nostalgics have the game available for download in the Nintendo eShop today, priced at $5.99. Speaking of beasts, a 3D version of another Sega classic, the side scrolling beat ’em up Altered Beast gets a 3D version too, and like Sonic, it’s available for $5.99 in the eShop.
