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 $5.99 digital download on Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS.
What was it about Sonic 2 that made it so great? Let us recount the ways:
- All-new half-pipe special stages!
- Super Sonic transformations!
- Those crazy corkscrews in stages!
- Flying as Super Sonic next to Tails’ bi-plane!
- The music from Casino Night Zone!
And because Sonic 2 was one of the breakout hits for both the Sega Genesis and Sega Game Gear, Oct. 8 also marks the launch of the Sega hardware Nintendo 3DS themes in the Americas, with the Sega Genesis and Sega Game Gear hardware themes being the first available. Featuring imagery and sounds of the legendary systems of yore, now anyone can adorn their Nintendo 3DS system with their Sega console of choice. The Sega Genesis and Sega Game Gear are just the tip of the iceberg though; the following hardware themes will be released in the coming months. (This list corresponds to the release order as well.)
- Sega Mark III
- Sega Saturn
- Hi-Tech Sega (80s style Japanese arcade machine)
- Sega SG-1000
- Sega Dreamcast
The hardware themes will be $1.99 each and the Sega Genesis and Sega Game Gear themes are now available in the Nintendo 3DS Theme store. The themes will be available in Europe as well, but the release timing will be different from the above schedule.
