First-run and pre-order copies of SEGA 3D Classics Collection get nostalgic with classic-themed sticker set
So, did you plan on picking up that recently-revealed SEGA 3D Classics Collection when it releases on the 3DS later this spring? If so, you might just want to pre-order it to get your hands on some pretty cool swag.
SEGA today announced that pre-order and limited first-print copies of the upcoming retro collection will include a SEGA Classics Decal Sheet bonus item. The sheet will be available in every physical launch edition of the collection, and includes nine SEGA logos and console stickers. The decals are a silver hue to add a nice contrast to your Nintendo 3DS.
Here’s a quick rundown on the stickers included in the SEGA Classics decal sheet:
Master System logo — Originally released in 1985 as the Sega Mark-III in Japan, the Master System was redesigned and renamed when it launched in North America in 1986 with an added FM Sound Unit.
Master System console — An authentic line-art likeness of the North American/European version of the console!
- Mega Drive logo — Originally released in Japan in 1988, the Mega Drive was the 16-bit successor to the Master System. Widely considered one of the greatest video game consoles of all time, the system was home to many classic games such as Altered Beast,Sonic the Hedgehog, and many more.
- Genesis logo — Please choose a “Blast Processing” joke to your liking. Are we good here?
- Genesis console — An authentic line-art likeness of the Model 1 SEGA Genesis console!
- 16-Bit — Emblazoned on the front of the Genesis, the 16-Bit logo let everyone know you were working with POWER. Affix this decal to give a blast processing boost to whatever needs it most.*
- Professor Asobin -Before Sonic, Alex Kidd, and Opa Opa, this dapper white rabbit appeared in most SG-1000 game manuals and gave helpful advice to players. Although he was briefly replaced by Dr. Games, he soon returned and appeared in game manuals up until the Mega Drive/Genesis era.
- SEGA logo – A SEGA decal collection wouldn’t be complete without the company logo!
- GigaDrive logo – This last logo represents something different than the other ones we’ve covered because it’s a “virtual console.” In order for the SEGA 3D Classics Collection to run perfectly on the Nintendo 3DS, developer M2 created the GigaDrive which is how these games take full advantage of the 3DS’s capabilities (such as stereoscopic 3D).
The SEGA 3D Classics Collection will be released for $29.99/CA $44.99 in the Americas on April 26, 2016.
