It's widely known that Sonic and Knuckles (S&K) started out as the latter half of Sonic 3, but development constraints forced SEGA to split the game in two, putting S&K onto an innovative Lock-On cartridge that, when combined with Sonic 3, pieced the game back together into its original state. Now, with the announcement that...
Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles said to be playable
Stick your tin-foil hats on for this one, folks. A new 2D entry to the long-running Sonic the Hedgehog series is reportedly in development at SEGA.

The great Emerald's power allows us to feel extremely excited at the fact that Idris Elba is going to play Knuckles in the upcoming sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog (the movie). At least, that's what it looks like from his semi-cryptic tweet of a fist: This probably seems crazy crazy, a graveyard theory, but we took a closer look at the...
Sonic 3 is back! & Knuckles
Update: Based on the footage used in the trailer (above), fans were initially sceptical that Sonic 3 would be widescreen in this new collection. It has now been confirmed by Katie MiniKitty, social media and influencer manager for Sonic, that the game will be 16:9. Phew! During today's Sonic Central stream we had
Leaker says "it's back"
This year marks Sonic the Hedgehog's 30th anniversary. Sega has previously said it's got some "exciting news" that it can't wait to share and has told fans to expect plenty of major announcements - including new games, digital content and more. There's already been a rumour ab
Back in June, when Sega revealed the Sega Genesis Mini / Mega Drive Mini and its library of games during a Famitsu live stream in Japan, it continued to surprise viewers by showing off additional non-functioning components for the device. This included miniature-sized versions of the Sega CD / Mega CD, 32X add-on, a Sonic &...
Good news, everyone
Last week we reported that SEGA is dropping four Sonic games from the Japanese Virtual Console, and naturally our thoughts turned to if and how this would affect users outside Japan. We've now heard back from SEGA Europe with good news. A SEGA representative confirmed that these removals "will not affect Europe, only...
Are we next?
SEGA is taking four Sonic games off the Virtual Console in Japan.

Increasing the amount of games ever so slowly.
Nintendo of Europe's planned games for today seemed almost set in stone since last week, but over the past few days we suddenly got a handful of extra games to complement update, bringing the total amount of new things this week up to seven. Still not quite as much as elsewhere, but at least they're...
Sonic must defeat doctor Robotnik yet again!
This time, Robotnik wants the Master Emerald, the biggest and most powerful of all the Chaos Emeralds. With this emerald, the Death Egg, Robotnik's ultimate weapon will have limitless power and nothing can stop him from taking over the world. It's up to Sonic to stop Robotnik's plans, but he's not the only one. Knuckles, guardian of the Floating Island and the Chaos Emeralds tries to stop him as well.
Play as both Sonic and Knuckles in 8 new zones in two different adventures. Get as many rings as you can, get all the emeralds and defeat enemies. The original cartridge could be combined with Sonic 3 to play the game as it was meant to be played. When combined with Sonic 2, you were able to play it with Knuckles for a new game experience.
