Not a lot of Sonic games released this year, but nobody cared since they were still playing Sonic Adventure and all the new titles that Dreamcast had to offer. Fans had Sonic Adventure, and they were happy. This year sees only one title, and that was in the US…
2000: The Year of Tideovers
November 14th: Sonic Shuffle (USA)
This was released in America – the UK release came in 2001. This was to contend with Mario Party and their stupidly increasing sequels. The atmosphere may seem familiar because it was coded by former members of the Mario Party team. You were on a kind of ‘board’, and using numbered cards you had to gain Precioustones to win the game. There were lots of fun mini games on the disk too.
