Segas little blue mascot finally gets down and dirty with
one of the companys former enemies in the impending release
of Sonic the Hedgehog Advance for Nintendos GameBoy Advance.
Formally unveiled at E3, we now have a good idea of what the games
going to look and play like, as well as the basic framework of
the story. The plot is straightforward enough and you could probably
guess it if you know anything about Sonic games the evil
Dr. Robotnik is up to no good once again, and youll need
to stop him by collecting Chaos Emeralds. Youll play as
Amy, Knuckles, Sonic or Tails in this all-new adventure that features
the same speed and graphical look of the hugely popular 2D Sonic
games on the Sega Genesis.
There will be two multi-player modes, which Sega is calling Chaos
Emerald mode along with the simply-titled Battle
mode but we did not get a chance to see these or try them
out at E3. You can see by the screenshots that on the surface,
at least, the graphics are even better than those of the last
Genesis release, and theyll probably improve even further
before the games release date (click on the download
tab above for a look at the game in motion). Those of you who
never picked up a Neo Geo Pocket Color will finally get to take
Sonic on the go when the game hits streets this November.
