3D Gunstar Heroes now available on eShop for 3DS

3DS Gunstar Heroes (3DS) Launch Announcement - Screenshot 1

Treasure’s legendary action side-scroller Gunstar Heroes has been added to Sega’s 3D Classics line. 3D Gunstar Heroes, now available on eShop, features two versions (Japanese and International), local co-op, emulation options, stereoscopic 3D support, and new gameplay modes.

The technically minded curious about how it was accomplished can find some answers in a new interview with producer Yosuke Okunari and M2 president Naoki Horii at Sega’s blog.
