Ah, yes… the famous beta of Sonic 2. It sparked an entire website and became one of the most talked about version of any game out there. Well, we received a news tip from a fellow named “SonicLoof” a few hours ago and he attached the picture below and explained to us what it is.
Yes what you see here is super tails in Sonic 2 beta. If you go to hidden place in debug mode and get tails to stand on the master emerald you can make him turn super by holding up and the A B and C buttons.
Get that? Activate Debug Mode, have Tails position himself on the Master Emerald, hold “up” on the directional pad and press A, B, & C at the same time. “SonicLoof” also mentioned that Tails is entirely in grayscale when he the code is triggered. I guess they hadn’t picked out a palette yet during this beta’s development. You, or the computer (if you’re playing by yourself), can then freely walk around as the gray, jacked-up Tails.
I tried this trick and it indeed works. I will get a video on The Sonic Show after all of my classes finish today.
What does all this mean? Super Tails was originally going to be in Sonic 2. That’s about it. Oh, Sonic 2 Beta, what don’t you have stored in there?
