Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic Labyrinth and Crystal Warriors for Game Gear now available from 3DS eShop

Three Sega Game Gear titles — Sonic Labyrinth, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Crystal Warriors — are now available to download from the North American Nintendo 3DS eShop, according to a post on the official Sega blog.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 first saw a release on the Sega Game Gear handheld and Master System console in 1992, and was set loose on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Japan last October. Sonic Labyrinth, the puzzle-platformer, originally launched on the Game Gear in 1995 and was released on the Japan Nintendo 3DS eShop last May.

The new port of Crystal Warriors includes local multiplayer for the Nintendo 3DS, where both players require a copy of the game. The turn-based fantasy strategy game featuring the adventures of Princess Iris of Ariel, had its initial release on the Game Gear in Japan in 1991 and in North America in 1992.
