SEGA has announced a ton of ‘3D’ ports of classic games, we have had many of the classics already released and now there is one more to add to your list: Fantasy Zone!
In a strange turn of events it seems that the title of the original classic has been extended for the re-release, now titled Fantasy Zone: Opa-Opa Bros in Japan. Why the extended title? Well, it seems that Opa-Opa’s brother “Upaupa” will be playable. According to the official site, all you will have to do is complete the original game to unlock ‘Upaupa mode’. He will have multiple weapons that can be changed on the fly with the second 3DS screen. The game is set to come out in Japan on March 19th for 762 yen.
So what else is new? Wanna see the screens? Hit the jump!

Is Upa Upa a new character? Never came across this on any official game?
Opa Opa’s brother appeared in Fantasy Zone: The Maze as well as in Galactic Protector. The name Upa-Upa was given when he first appeared in The Maze, which means he has been around since 1987!
Oh yeah, I forget about those games given one was even more obscure in the West and the other never made it outside Japan. 🙁
