Sonic Blast (titled G Sonic in Japan) will be releasing on the Japanese 3DS Virtual Console on April 18th. Sonic Blast was the first Game Gear game allowing players to play as Knuckles on the handheld system. This game also marked the final release for the Game Gear back in 1996. Sonic Blast allows players to play as large pre-rendered 3D versions of Sonic or Knuckles running through levels inspired by Sonic 3, with bonus levels similar to that of Sonic 2. So who plans on snagging this for their 3DS next week?
