Games[edit]

Sega 3D Classics Collection includes ten games, four (three in Japan) of which have not been released separately on the Nintendo eShop.[1][2] 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.
