Sonic Adventure 2 Battle Releases EARLY in the UK!

Well, this is a nice and very confusing surprise! Sonic Team’s port of Sonic Adventure 2 for the Nintendo Gamecube was meant to release on the console’s launch day in the UK – a week from now on May 3rd. But it’s actually hit store shelves country-wide today, a week early!

A tip-off from ‘bcdcdude’ informed us to rush straight to our local gaming store, and sure enough, we could buy Sonic Adventure 2: Battle for the Gamecube before the new Nintendo console has even hit store shelves. We have a copy right here in our hands as we type this in fact!

Although, now that we have it, we can’t actually play it for another week. We’ve already pre-ordered the Gamecube, and that won’t be ready for us to buy until May 3rd, so until then we have a nice fresh box to look at, and a cool little game manual to read up on. That’s our weekend sorted. Yeah. Excuse us…
