3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 finally has a release date! The stereoscopic 3D remaster by M2 hits the 3DS eShop on the 8th of October.

Outside the obvious addition of stereoscopic 3D visuals, the only major change to this version of Sonic 2 comes with the ability to save anywhere and play multiplayer co-op or vs modes with each player on a dedicated device. Also included is a new unlockable Super Sonic mode which allows you to activate Super Sonic at any point in the game.

SEGA Japan’s YouTube channel has unleashed a trailer for 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the upcoming M2 port for 3DS. If you have a 3D-enabled display you can view the trailer in its intended stereoscopic 3D format. Check it out below:

3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 launches in the West in September this year for the 3DS eShop. It will feature a new Ring Keep mode which halves the amount of rings you lose every time you get hit.

New Ring Keep Mode Revealed for 3D Sonic 2

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

sonic2remastered

A new mode called Ring Keep has been revealed for the 3DS port of Sonic 2.

3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will now feature a mode that allows you to start a stage with 10 rings but every time you take damage the amount of rings you lose are halved. This also means the amount of rings you’re allowed to scrape back after a hit is greatly reduced. It’s an interesting addition that should make for some challenging gameplay for seasoned players.

Also announced is 2 player co-op and versus modes will be available to play through wireless connectivity but both players will need their own copy of 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The game will have the standard M2 features of quick saves and the option to play the Japanese or international version of the game.

New Stages Discovered in Sonic 2 Remastered

Sunday, May 11th, 2014

Yes, we’re pretty late to this news but I think it’s worth sharing because I love hidden little oddities.

2 additional stages have been discovered lurking in the source code for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Remastered for iOS. The first is Egg Gauntlet Zone which basically acts as a boss rush. You can see footage of it below:

Sadly this zone is no longer playable as a recent update removed removed the stage’s art assets.

Next up is Proto Palace Zone. This stage recreates a faithful yet completable version of Hidden Palace Zone that was featured in the Simon Wai Sonic 2 Beta ROM. What’s more interesting about this stage is it can still be accessed to regular owners of the game. Here’s some instructions on how to do this:

1) Access the Sonic 2 level select code by tapping the letters in the SEGA logo from left to right, then put two fingers on the title screen.
2) Enter the debug code 01,09,09,02,01,01,02,04 into the sound test section.
3) Then follow this with this code: 03,03,03,0B,10,10,10,04

You can also check out footage of this zone in action below:

Sonic 2 Remastered Releasing Tomorrow; Hidden Palace Zone is Unlockable

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Christian “The Taxman” Whitehead returns once again with a Retro Engine-powered port of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Android and iOS devices. The new version of the 16 bit classic launches tomorrow and will be a free update for those who already own the existing port of Sonic 2 for these devices.

Along with the usual enhancements of a widescreen display and more accurate controls, Whitehead has seen fit to add Hidden Palace Zone as an unlockable bonus stage. This is not the Hidden Palace Zone from Sonic & Knuckles either; this is the version that was discovered in Sonic 2 Beta. Whitehead has obviously not left the stage incomplete and has given it a lovely makeover which now includes gimmicks like the water jet you can see above.
