SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. are delighted to announce final release dates of several highly anticipated Nintendo 3DS games. Coming out this year and early 2012 each of these exciting new titles have been specifically designed for the Nintendo 3DS experience and feature favourite classic SEGA characters as well as brand new heroes.

Coming to stores in Europe on 11th November 2011 and 15th November for North America, Shinobi introduces several exciting new features such as StreetPass™ and a large assortment of achievements and challenges to unlock.
SEGA’s much loved mascot Sonic the Hedgehog™ makes his way onto Nintendo 3DS for the very first time as part of the celebrations for his 20th anniversary. Speeding through many levels designed exclusively for the Nintendo system, Sonic Generations™ allows fans to play as both Classic and Modern Sonic across a range of iconic and memorable levels – all re-imagined for a completely new experience.

CRUSH™3D, the critically acclaimed puzzle platformer game, redesigned for Nintendo 3DS will hit stores on 10th January 2012 for North America and 13th January for Europe. Help Danny solve brain-teasing puzzles by ‘crushing’ your way from a 2-dimensional to a 3-dimensional world and back again with the touch of a button.

And finally, the record-breaking duo of Mario and Sonic™ join forces for the first time ever on the Nintendo 3DS with the eagerly anticipated launch of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games™.

The much loved pair head to stores on 10th February 2012 across Europe and 14th February 2012 in North America and are sure to continue their formidable partnership for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

    its worth it to celebrate the 20th bday of one of the best series ever made!
    plus this will be the last good sonic game because sega have said there only doing classic sonic and 2D levels because its the 20th bday.
    after this there going back to new sonic and 3D levels.
