Game Profile

While the evil genius Dr. Robotnik is testing the ultmate destructive weapon, one of his assistants makes a mistake causing his lab to explode and scattering five Chaos Emeralds across the planet Mobius.

Sonic and Tails spin-dash to rescue them. Tricky Knuckles streaks right behind, with sticky-fingered Nack the Weasel joining the hunt. Its a triple-threat race to see who will get the Emeralds first!

Three times the action and Triple the Trouble! Loop, blast and super spin-dash through six zones, five bonus rounds and a wild 3-D stage.

  • Check out Sonic's moves as he jams with his awesome Strike Dash, Jet-Boards on snow and ice, rolls in his Spin-Coaster and swims deep under water with Propeller Shoes
  • Help Tails as he submarines through water with his Sea Fox and Heli-Tails to explore parts of the zone beyond Sonic's reach

can't wait for this! I've played a lot of sonic games and this one is one I haven't played so i hope it comes out soon:)

I loved this game on Game Gear and can't wait for 3DS owners to get it, too. I just wonder how much they'll want for it...

This is going to be the first Sonic game? What about the first game? The second game? Chaos? Few people even remember Triple Trouble. Why bother with it?



Clayfrd said:

Obscure, you raise an interesting point. It could be because Sonic 1 and 2 on GG have seen rerelease in more abundance than Triple Trouble.



TimboBaggins said:

I think this is . Obscure or not, Game Gear games are a welcome addition to the 3DSVC. Who ever thought they would play game gear games on a nintendo system? Not me. I had both back in the day (started with original gameboy, then when game gear was getting phased out and got heavily discounted I picked it up - awesome for the price I paid).

This game is awesome! I have it on Game Gear and other systems and it so great. Graphics are bright, music is upbeat, but I dont like the fact that you have to find the emerald then get 50 rings, beat the stage and THEN go to the bonus stage for the emerald. But it is still great.

Love this game as a unlockabel minigame in Sonic Adventure DX from after you complete a couple of missions.

I only like this game because Nack is in it. Sad that he never really appeared again... But I'm happy this is on the 3DS VC!
