It would seem that lucky Japanese 3DS owners have been privy to 3D remastered versions of classic Sega games for a while now, and Altered Beast 3D is just the latest in that trend. This conversion of the classic 1988 arcade game will sport 2 player action and will only cost 600 Yen. It is due to hit the Japanese eShop May 29th, with a Western release thus far unannounced. Here’s hoping we get some of Japan’s remastered Sega classics soon, like 3D Sonic the Hedgehog, 3D Super Hang On, and 3D Space Harrier! In the meantime, take a gander at the pretty pictures.
