3D Fantasy Zone II W is the popular side-scrolling shooter, first released for the SEGA Master System in 1987 as a sequel to 1986’s Fantasy Zone, in which players control a sentient spaceship named Opa-Opa to fight bizarre invader enemies. The re-mastered version upgrades all visuals from 8 bit to 16 bit graphic standards and combines stereoscopic 3D effects with a host of additional features to deliver cutting edge gameplay experience with a classic feel. Additional features include:, the ability to save games for later review, a Stage Select feature that allows players to save and resume progress mid-game, and adjustable difficulty settings. Further, this game allows the player to experience two games in one, the re-mastered master system version of story mode “Tears of Opa Opa” and an all new Endless Game Mode that takes place in the mysterious “Link Loop Land”, which condenses the all of the fun features of the shooter.
