Can you imagine what would happen if Sonic 3D collided into Sonic 2D? This Sonic world based on the Sonic Heroes and Sonic Adventures games is yours to explore!

If this looks suspiciously familiar, you’re probably a hardcore Sonic fan — the secret area feels most reminiscent of the Sega CD game “Sonic CD.” “Sonic Mania” isn’t just an homage to past Sonic games — it’s an homage to your memories of those games.

‘Shadow the Hedgehog’

As we said before, SEGA went through many different mascot ideas before they landed on Sonic the Hedgehog. One of these ideas was the truly awfully named Feel the Rabbit. Feel would pick things up with his ears and then attack them with his body or throw them. This design would later become the blueprint for another SEGA game, Ristar. The idea of a rabbit that used her ears for special abilities would later be revisited in the equally awfully named Cream the Rabbit, who used her ears to fly. That makes the comic line 20 years old, one of the longest running comic lines period and the longest running comic line based on a video game.

  • @NintendoArchive CD needs to be much higher, yes it has its issues but it was still a very great game.
  • It’s a great mechanic, expanded on by the fact that each team’s journey through the game’s levels is different too.
  • After the infamously disastrous releases of Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic ‘06, Sega desperately needed a hit that would reinvigorate the Sonic franchise.

Speaking of Sonic Pocket Adventure, that’s a game I haven’t played yet. They should bring that to Switch as well, maybe in a NEOGEO Pocket Color Collection 2. To this day I still cannot wrap my head around the idea of Mario and Sonic being together in the Olympics. In Smash it’s not so weird at this point given the amount of third-party characters it has. But I’m glad Sonic was one of the first “guests” and the first one to be a “veteran guest” since Snake didn’t return in Smash 4.

In video games

When Sonic collects all 7 Chaos Emeralds he transforms in to “Super Sonic” – a faster golden Hedgehog with invulnerability and the ability to fly. Sonic can also collect golden rings which are littered around Mobius’ several zones. 50 rings will allow Sonic to enter the bonus level which grants him the chance to reach a Chaos Emerald.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 review – no surprises in Sega’s speedy-critter sequel – The Guardian

It also has a competitive game mode that supports four players, and the “Encore Mode” allows you to replay game levels. I would absolutely LOVE if Sega is working on an Origins 2 doing exactly this. Its a very cool variation and will be fun for me to play through, though I’ll still prefer the original levels because those are what I grew up with. I had no idea they existed, I’ve been making my own incredibly similar project in my spare time.

However, Sonic he is consistently used to represent the “tough guy” or “loner,” and his abilities remain roughly the same. Knuckles being tricked by Eggman into believing Sonic is the villain has become a recurring theme in the Sonic universe, even to the point of being a running gag. Although he and Sonic fight from time to time, there is an undercurrent of mutual understanding between the two. Ever since the introduction of Shadow the Hedgehog as one of Sonic’s darker, more anti-heroic rivals, Knuckles’ relationship with Sonic has seen as much more friendly by comparison.
