The past and future combined
Sonic may have all sorts of 3D adventures, but SEGA hasn’t forgotten the hedgehog’s roots. That’s why they continue to offer new 2D installments as the years roll on, and the latest to follow in those traditional footsteps in Sonic Superstars.
In the video above, Takashi Iizuka and Austin Keys from SEGA sit down with IGN to tell them all about Sonic Superstars and how it’s inspired by classic 2D Sonic games like Mania and Generations.
In Sonic Superstars, you’ll adventure through the mystical Northstar Islands in an all-new take on classic 2D Sonic high-speed action platforming. Play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy Rose and harness all-new Emerald powers to move and attack in dynamic new ways. Navigate gorgeous, never-before-seen environments solo or with up to 3 other players and stop Dr. Eggman, Fang, and a mysterious new adversary from converting the islands’ giant animals into Badniks before it’s too late!
