The lights are on
A detailed listing for an updated Sonic the Hedgehog with stereoscopic 3D capabilities has appeared on Sega's Japanese website.
Running the site through Google Translate reveals a number of interesting details. The game will be available in Japan on May 15 for 600 yen (around $6 U.S.), can be played in 3D, will allow players to save at any time, play with either the circle or d-pad, and play the game in a display mode that makes it look like you are playing the game on a curved tube television.
Sega has not said if the game is coming to North America yet, but apparently this Japanese version of the game will allow you to play the English version of the game, which is slightly different. Hopefully it will make its way stateside soon.

Ooh...well, I hate buying the game again, but handheld and 3D...probably worth it.
Lately i have thinking about replaying this game, maybe i give it a shot if the price is razonable
Wow. I would actually buy this if it came to US.
Sega does what Nintend-oh nevermind.
I swear I will buy this game on every freaking platform Sega puts it on. Gotta have my Sanac, I guess.
I take it Ben Hanson won't be picking this one up.
That's great news! I've never played the original Sonic the Hedgehog (I've played Sonic the Hedgehog 2, though.), so this is a great opportunity for me to try out the game if it comes to North America. The fact that it is going to be in 3D is also interesting.
This does sound really cool, but I don't know if I want to spend money on another version of the original Sonic. I love the game and have beaten it a decent number of times, but I have a few copies for the Genesis, and on collections for the Gamecube, PS2, PS3, PSP, and PC...
Anyone else think about the fact that this is a GENESIS game? Could we finally start seeing 16 bit VC titles?!? The main reason I use my 3DS is for VC titles, and I'm itching for Super Metroid and A Link to the Past to be released. C'mon Nintendo - FREE MONEY!
Im a Sonic fan and I hope this dose not ruin it for me
a 2d game in 3d....
