A Strong Start for the Game Gear Re-Release
Sonic still sells on Nintendo consoles, and if you need any more proof of that, look no further than the latest sales charts from the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
Website Nintendo Everything reports the numbers for last week show Sonic Triple Trouble at the top of the charts, taking the #1 spot and beating out the original Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. The re-release of classic Shinobi also fared well for Sega; that title took the 18th spot on the top 20.
That Triple Trouble debuted so strong almost certainly means more Game Gear re-releases, at least on the Sonic side, should be expected in the future.
