Update (Thu 20th Feb, 2020 17:30 GMT): As a reminder, both Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Puyo Puyo 2 have launched on Nintendo Switch today. Sega has shared a brand new trailer to celebrate, and we thought it'd be rude not to share it with you lovely lot. Enjoy!
Original Article (Fri 7th Feb, 2020 10:45 GMT): Nintendo Switch's Sega Ages range is about to have one of its finest days so far with both Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Puyo Puyo 2 set to launch simultaneously. You'll be able to play both of these games on Nintendo's platform starting 20th February.
The Switch version of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will feature the return of its competitive two-player mode, newly-added features like Sonic Mania's 'drop dash' (where you spin dash in mid-air to quickly gain speed) and Super Sonic Mode, as well as Time Trials, online rankings, and even Knuckles the Echidna.
Puyo Puyo 2 is also being treated to some welcome additions such as a full English localisation, two-player online battles, online rankings, a quick rewind function, and a colourblind mode. Here are official descriptions of both titles:
About Sonic The Hedgehog 2
Hailed as one of the most successful games for the Genesis (Mega Drive), Sonic The Hedgehog 2 garnered critical acclaim swiftly after its 1992 release. Follow Sonic and Tails (in his series debut!) as they team up against the nefarious Dr. Eggman in order to save the Chaos Emeralds from the clutches of evil.
About Puyo Puyo 2
Puyo Puyo 2 (also known as Puyo Puyo Tsu) is considered one of the biggest arcade games of all time in Japan. This sequel introduced an improved ruleset along with the ability to offset Garbage Puyo sent by your opponent by creating Puyo chains of your own. Swap between Single Puyo Puyo, Double Puyo Puyo, and Endless Puyo Puyo game modes for even more Puyo fun in this classic puzzle experience.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Puyo Puyo 2 will be available to download individually from 20th February for $7.99 a pop.
