When Sega announced their line of remastered “Classics” for the 3DS, the one I was really holding out for was Out Run. Being born in an era where arcades barely mattered, I’d only had a single chance to play the original arcade cabinet so my familiarity with the game mostly came from the fact that it has already been ported to just about every console in existence. While most of these ports captured the game’s relaxed feel and addictive gameplay, they did vary wildly in quality so I was curious to see how well this 3DS version stacked up. Is it faithful to Yu Suzuki’s original classic?

Well yeah, of course. The emulation experts at M2 always go to crazy lengths to get the small details accurate as possible while throwing in heaps of extra content and hidden bonuses. What really surprised me was how well Out Run holds up in the year 2015.

M2 and SEGA are cooking up another round of 3D Classics for Japan. We’ve kind of heard about this vaguely in the past, but SEGA CS3 producer Yosuke Okunari seems to have officially confirmed the news on Twitter. If the new games succeed in Japan, Okunari says we could see them launch in other parts of the world.
