Game Profile

Sonic The Hedgehog, now in 3D!

The evil scientist, Dr. Eggman (aka Dr. Robotnik), has snatched the animals of South Island, turning them into robot slaves. Only one hero can defeat Dr. Eggman and rescue the animals from his vile clutches – it’s the super-cool hedgehog with the blue spiky hair, Sonic! Race at lightning speeds across seven classic zones as Sonic the Hedgehog. Run and spin through loop-de-loops as you collect rings and defeat enemies on your mission to save the world! In addition to its all-new 3D presentation, 3D Sonic The Hedgehog™ now features Zone Select and the classic Spin Dash move to help you zoom through Zones and take down Badniks!

Can't wait to have the original Super Mario Bros., the original Mega Man, and the original Sonic the Hedgehog together on-demand for play anytime on my 3DS!

Was going to buy SMB3 but seeing as it will probably be a while 'till that comes out gonna go ahead and buy another game I love dearly. Hoping the 3D will be good.

This is one of the best editions of this game I have ever played, and hope it is successful enough that they bring the rest of the Genesis/Mega Drive Sonic games to the 3DS.



RyanOehrli said:

Game is pretty sick. Hoping that 2, 3/Knuckles, and CD will get the same treatment in due time.



ddbangsy said:

Yea, Sonic 2 with Sonic 3 and Knuckles would be great to see in the future.
This version of the first Sonic is excellent.



Yuuta said:
