Sega 3D Classics Collection is a video game compilation developed by M2 and published by Sega for the Nintendo 3DS. In Japan, the collection was released under the title Sega 3D Fukkoku Archives 2. It is a successor to the 2014 Japan-only video game compilation Sega 3D Fukkoku Archives.
Sega 3D Classics Collection includes ten games, four (three in Japan) of which have not been released separately on the Nintendo eShop. Instead of the games being emulated, the code for the games were rebuilt so they could allow new features not in their original versions like stereoscopic 3D.
