Sonic, Tails, and Chaos Emeralds Blast Their Way onto Nintendo 3DS in 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2

 

In his second outing, the Blue Blur had to once again face the evil robotic forces of Dr. Eggman and recover the stolen Chaos Emeralds. But with the situation growing dire, Sonic is joined by Miles “Tails” Prower, for the series-first co-op play. And the best part? Beginning today, players can return to the greatness of the Sega Genesis classic on Nintendo 3DS™ with the release of 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 as the latest installment of the faithfully recreated SEGA 3D Classics!  Like other 3D classic titles before it, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will receive extensive 3D conversion and faithful recreation of the game’s sounds and music for a €4.99 digital download on Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS. For more information about recreating the game on the Nintendo 3DS, SEGA Games Producer, Yosuke Okunari and M2 President, Naoki Horii recap the entire process in depth on the SEGA blog.

What was it about Sonic 2 that made it so great? Let us recount the ways:

  • All-new half-pipe special stages!
  • Tails!
  • Super Sonic transformations!
  • Those crazy corkscrews in stages!
  • Flying as Super Sonic next to Tails’ bi-plane!
  • The music from Casino Night Zone!

We could go on for pages, but we won’t because you can go play it now!
