As recently announced, Sega is ready to throw some Game Gear games onto your 3DS for all your 8-bit needs. Adding to the ranks are two more Sonic the Hedgehog titles: Sonic Blast and Sonic Labyrnth. For those who don’t know, Sonic Blast is the first Game Gear game that allowed users to play as Knuckles. Having played this game, I can say it does have some of the better graphics out of the Game Gear Sonic titles, as well as some of the largest sprites I have seen on the Game Gear’s screen. Sonic Blast released the same time Sonic 3D Blast graced the Sega Saturn and Genesis, which lead to an updated look. Sonic Labyrnth on the other hand… well for some reason someone thought it would be fun to play as a slow Sonic. In Sonic Labyrnth, Dr. Robotnik steals Sonic’s shoes, which are his source of speed. In this isometric adventures, you must speed dash and solve puzzles to reacquaint Sonic with his speed. Why anyone would want us to relive this “adventure” is beyond me, but its better than re-releasing Sonic Shuffle in any way shape or form I suppose.
So who will be picking up these titles?
