Sega announced that Ecco The Dolphin will be appearing on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in the very near future. The release will be a full port of the original Mega Drive/Genesis title, featuring full 3D, save states, and more.
The game will be available in Japan on June 26th and will cost 600 Yen. Don’t be surprised to see a local release sometime later this summer, especially if the Japanese release sells well.
Ecco The Dolphin joins other Sega games on the eShop, including Super Hang-On, Space Harrier, Sonic The Hedgehog, and Altered Beast. Galaxy Force II will also become available in the future, but no specific date has been announced.
