SEGA announced that 3D Fantasy Zone: Opa-Opa Bros., part of the second series of classic titles re-mastered exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS, is now available in the Americas and Europe to download in the Nintendo eShop.
3D Fantasy Zone: Opa-Opa Bros. is the popular side-scrolling shooter, first released for the SEGA System-16 board in 1986, in which players control a sentient spaceship named Opa-Opa to fight bizarre invader enemies. The re-mastered version combines stereoscopic 3D visuals with a host of additional features to deliver cutting edge gameplay with a classic feel. 3D Fantasy Zone: Opa-Opa Bros. also introduces a new feature called the “coin stock” system that allows players to accumulate coins for use across play sessions and to unlock in-game abilities. Furthermore, the game features an unlockable mode in which players are able to play as Upa-Upa, the little brother of Opa-Opa, upon completion of the game.
SEGA will release 3D Out Run, 3D Fantasy Zone II, and 3D Thunder Blade for Nintendo 3DS in the coming months.
