Sega is continuing their 3D Classics line and they're bringin' some heavy hitters. They recently announced on their blog Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be getting the 3D treatment, along with Streets of Rage 2 and Gunstar Heroes. Helluva lineup there.

These ports are likely still being worked on by M2, who have been doing a fantastic job with the series, bringing an accurate representation of the original games plus a plethora of bonus options. All while painstakingly bringing these 2D games into 3D bit by bit. They're pretty much the best in the biz when it comes to handling classic games and their passion really shows in their projects. Just read their interviews about the development of each game to see for yourself.

3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is set to release this September.

No April Fools jokes this year. Couldn't come up with anything. (It's hard!) I don't think there was anything last year either.

However, I give you April Fools of SHQ's past. Surely you remember:

There was also going to be an Elise HQ. Consider yourselves spared.

Sonic Generations (along with Viking: Battle for Asgard) have been unlocked for the beat-the-average tier, which currently sits at a mere $3.72.

Generations is a solid port. Also, be sure to check out the excellent Unleashed Project mod too!

As mentioned before, if you already bought the dollar tier, you can upgrade your purchase through the bundle key page Humble sent you. And if you already beat the average, then the extra games should be waiting for you on that page too.

Go grab it here!

For a mere dollar you can get the Dreamcast Collection, NiGHTS into Dreams, and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for PC on Steam!

The Dreamcast Collection includes Sonic Adventure DX, along with Crazy Taxi, Space Channel 5: Part 2, and Sega Bass Fishing. Those ports are kinda crappy but Sega has recently been working to update and fix them up a bit.

NiGHTS is solid though. And Racing Transformed is pretty much one of the best kart racers ever.

More games will be unlocked for the beat-the-average tier next week. Maybe more Sonic games will be included? Maybe. Either way, you could buy the dollar tier now and upgrade later. (The average price to beat will be locked to whatever it was when you bought the bundle. Typically it only goes up over time, but not by too much.)

Go grab it!
