Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Game Gear coming to 3DS eShop in Japan

Side-scrolling platformer Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop, according to a listing on the Nintendo Japan website.

The 8-bit title, released originally on Sega's Game Gear and Master System console in 1992, will be available on Oct. 31 for 300 yen (around $3.75). The game was ported to the Wii Virtual Console in all regions in 2008.

We have reached out to Nintendo to ask if the game will be released on the eShop in North America and Europe, and will update this story with more information as we have it.
