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 added modes include Mega Life (more health), Mega Shot (double damage), and Gunslinger (allows for players to discover new weapon combinations, a la Alien Soldier). The game’s extensive scrolling and high-intensity action made it particularly difficult to port to 3DS, and it was actually passed over previously. 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.

The upcoming Mega Man compilation, Mega Man Legacy Collection, has been officially dated for August 25. Save for the 3DS version, that is, which is slated for an early 2016 release.

Boxed copies will cost a bit more, however, running $29.99 instead of $14.99. Details about the 3DS and physical versions should be coming along in the near future. Regardless of the format, all sets will include the first six Mega Man games along with a new Challenge Mode, which features remixed segments from all games with scaling difficulty, and a Museum with hundreds of unlockable songs as well as high-res scans of concept sketches, production art, and unused designs.

Two interviews—part one, part two—were also released detailing how M2 and Sega updated the 1992 side-scrawling brawler for a new generation.
