SEGA announced today that 3D Thunder Blade™, re-mastered exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system, is now available to download in the Nintendo eShop.






3D Thunder Blade is a recreation of a one-of-a-kind combat helicopter arcade machine originally released in 1987, re-mastered for the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system. In 3D Thunder Blade, players control a helicopter and use guns and missiles to destroy enemy vehicles while flying between buildings, through caves, and into enemy bases. The re-mastered version boasts stereoscopic 3D visuals, support for the Circle Pad Pro or C-Stick, and adds a host of new features including two options for gyroscopic controls, adjustable difficulty settings, and a mode that recreates the look and feel of the original arcade machine with additional sound effects. Replay saving and stage select are also available!


Unlocked by completing the Arcade Mode, a Special Mode allows players to replay the game with upgraded attack powers, increased numbers of enemies with placements in new locations, all-new enemies, and an additional stage that was developed specifically for this re-master. 3D Thunder Blade also introduces brand new remixes of the original in-game music that can be toggled ‘on’ and ‘off’.


3D Thunder Blade is available now for download in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS.
