Sega has announced that the Japan eShop channel will be receiving the GameGear version of Columns on August 8th. Columns may not the most exciting title to warrant itself as many ports as it has had, but I would have to say that the handheld market is the best place for Columns. This version will feature local multiplayer provided both players own the game, which is something new for a 3DS Virtual Console game. Columns will retail at ¥300 and does not yet have a confirmation for the west. Here’s hoping we see some shiny jewels in the US and UK. What do you think? Are you a fan of Columns? Or do you think they should finally go with the obvious tie-in and create that Columns breakfast cereal everyone has been dying for?
