Space Harrier is heading to 3DS and PS3

Sega is currently porting a 3D version of the arcade classic, Space Harrier, to 3DS. It hasn’t been revealed if this is a new 3D port of the arcade version or if it’s the 8-bit Master System release that supported the 3D glasses but I’m hoping for an arcade port. The Master System version was a decent attempt at an 8-bit conversion but it doesn’t hold a candle to the arcade original. Maybe that’s because it doesn’t have any hands to hold a candle with. I guess you could use some tape or sticky tack to have the game hold a candle but I’d probably still think the arcade game is better.

In addition to this 3DS port, Sega is also re-releasing the SEGA AGES PS2 Space Harrier Collection on PSN today… in Japan. Maybe they could bring this over as a Vintage Collection sometime soon for the West?

  1. This has to be the arcade original. The Master System game, bless its soul, just wouldn’t cut it in any fashion today. It’s a blocky mess, especially going that fast. Was great for the time, especially the 3D, but not even retro gamers could probably get into it today.
