The arcade version of Thunder Blade has been announced as the next Sega 3D Classic release.

While not quite as awful in its Genesis form as Galaxy Force II was, similarly to Galaxy Force II, gamer's that just remember the rough 16 bit conversion are in for a treat with this one since it was excellent (Sega really should've based the Genesis game on the top down portions rather than attempting the 3D sprite scaling bits).


Hopefully Sega actually releases wave 2 of their 3D Classics series here. They've been nice games all around so far with this round and no bland Genesis ports like Altered Beast have cluttered it up. It has been 100% arcade focused so far (Both Fantasy Zone's, Afterburner II, Outrun, and now this) with hopefully more surprises to come like Turbo Outrun later this year.

But rumblings are that Sega won't bring this group West like they did the first wave of releases late last year.

The only thing is, the second stick looks to be near useless at that size and with that position.

The extra shoulder buttons don't look much more useful, as well.

Looks about the same setup as a Wii Classic Controller. I'd prefer the 2nd set of triggers below the 1st set like the Pro version has.

I sure as heck hope not. OutRun is one of my all-time favorite games. Been looking for a NA release date every week! I think the others weren't released in other parts until about a year after they came out in Japan, so I'm holding out hope.

Yeah, wave 1 only released here late last year. But a statement from M2, the emulation experts behind these releases, doesn't sound optimistic.

The only thing keeping this from being a complete pass for me is Xenoblade being exclusive to it, and even that isn't enough to get me to buy this upgrade.

That looks rather odd.

The NES GBA SP was better with the exterior styled to be reminiscent of the exterior of the NES and with the control surfaces styled like the controller.
