|Number of players: 1|
3D Fantasy Zone: Opa-Opa Bros. (3D ファンタジーゾーン オパオパブラザーズ) is an enhanced port of the Sega System 16 version of Fantasy Zone for the Nintendo 3DS released as part of the 3D Classics range. 3D Fantasy Zone is the first in the 3D Classics series to gain a subtitle - this is because Opa-Opa's brother, Upa-Upa, can be unlocked as a playable character.
3D Fantasy Zone: Opa-Opa Bros. enhances the game in various ways. Locating enemy bases has been made easier as a map is displayed on the touch screen to pinpoint their locations, along with optional markers displayed on-screen to direct the player. Coins collected in gameplay are saved to a "Coin Stock", allowing the player to withdraw some money when starting a new game. A maximum of $9,999,000 can be saved in the Coin Stock.
Other new features include saving replays, savestates, and a stage select.
After the game has been cleared once, Upa-Upa Mode will be unlocked. This mode stars Upa-Upa, Opa-Opa's younger brother who was previously only featured in Fantasy Zone: The Maze and Galactic Protector, on his own adventure to save the Fantasy Zone while borrowing some of his brother's savings.
When playing as Upa-Upa, no shop balloons will appear. Instead, the player chooses an engine to use at the start of the game, and has immediate access to all of the weapons on the touch screen. However, it will cost the player some gold each time the weapons are fired. Most weapons charge money for each shot fired, while the Laser Beam charges money for every second it is fired. The player cannot change their engine during gameplay. When the player reaches the ending in this mode, the game will not loop back to the beginning. Coins collected in this mode will also be saved to the Coin Stock.
Playing in Upa-Upa Mode will also change the background music for Plaleaf (Round 1) to a new track known as "Upa-Upa!". The rest of the soundtrack remains the same.
A number of secret features can also be unlocked by in-game accomplishments.
Master System bosses
If the player meets certain conditions in Opa-Opa Mode, the regular bosses at the end of certain rounds will be replaced with their counterparts from the Sega Master System version. When these bosses are encountered at least once, they can be disabled in the settings. These bosses are:
|Start from Plaleaf (Round 1) without using the Coin Stock, exceed $95,000 before reaching Dolimicca (Round 4), then defeat every enemy that appears on-screen and collect every coin that appears during Round 4. U.S.B.M.G.S.Tot will suddenly appear and bump Crabumger off the screen.|
|Start from Plaleaf (Round 1) without using the Coin Stock, exceed $235,000 before reaching Mockstar (Round 6), then destroy all the enemy bases and collect less than $10,000 worth of gold within the round. DZ·Deno·Roma will suddenly drop from the sky and crush Winklone.|
Three extra settings can be unlocked after the player's savings in the Coin Stock exceeds certain values:
- Extended Weapon Time: Extends the amount of time a primary weapon upgrade can be used. Unlocked by saving $1,000,000 in the Coin Stock.
- Gold Rush: Increases the value of gold dropped by enemies. Unlocked by saving $2,000,000 in the Coin Stock.
- Infinite Weapon Time: Primary weapon upgrades can be used for an infinite amount of time. Unlocked by saving $3,000,000 in the Coin Stock.
