Fast From The Past
Sega brings vintage hedgehog action to the DS with Sonic Classic Collection.
Sonic the Hedgehog has done a lot of crazy stuff recently. He's wielded a sword, he's turned into a werebeast, and he's competed against a certain plumber in both the summer and winter Olympics. But this spring he'll be returning to his roots on the Nintendo DS with Sonic Classic Collection.
Featuring the Blue Blur's original adventures from the Sega Genesis, Sonic Classic Collection contains some of the best (and speediest) platformers of the 16-bit era: the groundbreaking Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (which introduced Tails, Sonic's little buddy), Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (featuring the debut of Sonic's rival, Knuckles the Echidna), and Sonic & Knuckles (in which both Sonic and Knuckles are playable characters).
Gamers will also be able to play as Knuckles in Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 using Sonic & Knuckles's vaunted "lock-on technology." To top it off, the compilation will contain unlockable artwork and an in-depth video history of Sonic, making it a must-have for any die-hard hedgehog aficionado.
