Columns III: Revenge of Columns (コラムスIII: 対決!コラムスワールド, Columns III: Taiketsu! Columns World) is a puzzle arcade game published by Sega in Japan and by Vic Tokai in North America in 1993 as a sequel to Columns II: The Voyage Through Time.


In 2002, Columns III was one of the first Sega titles launched under Sega's short-lived agreement with the RealOne Arcade download service.[1] The Mega Drive version was released on the Wii's Virtual Console download service in Japan on December 11, 2007, in North America on February 4, 2008, and, for the first time in PAL territories, in Europe and Australia on May 2, 2008. It was also most recently ported as part of Sega Genesis Classics.
