Fantasy Zone is coming to Nintendo 3DS in Japan. Sega’s old-school shooter is getting the 3D Classics treatment this month under its new name, ‘3D Fantasy Zone: Opa Opa Brothers.’

Nintendo Life reports – via 4Gamer – that developer M2 isn’t just doing a straight port. Similar to its previous 3DS re-releases, the team is bolstering Fantasy Zone with new modes and other features.

Unlocked after completing the classic game, ‘Upa Upa mode’ stars Opa Opa’s brother who packs a different power-up system that sees players choosing one shot type before the game begins. You can then switch between different weapons using the 3DS touch screen, at the cost of coins collected throughout the game.

It out on the 3DS eShop in Japan from March 19.
