What is taking Sega so long to release their "3D Classics" outside of Japan?

They're arcade games, so there's not even anything to translate! Why won't they release them? I would buy Space Harrier and Super Hang-On on Day 1.

I believe they are doing 4 titles total in Japan, so I'm guessing they are waiting to release the entire group in one bundle over here.

I'm sure these would sell well sold separately, but putting them all together in one bundle seems like a better choice overall. They may offer them individually, but I think this is why they haven't announced them yet.

Space Harrier will be mine, as it is one of my favorite arcade games of all time. Can't wait to play it in 3D.

I also don't think we're getting Yakuza 5.

I've always stood up for Sega, but not releasing Yakuza 5 will make me dislike them for awhile. :(

Hm, they're doing four?

So what would the other two be? After Burner and Out Run?

Probably only the games that used the "3D" perspective, yeah. So that means no Altered Beast, Fantasy Zone... heck, I wouldn't mind seeing a 3D Classics Quartet 2, but THAT will never happen. :P
