Sonic 2 Remastered Will Include ‘Exclusive Content’


Just over a week ago, Sega announced that Sonic 2 remastered would be released as early as November of this year. A few people speculated that the game might include bonus or extra content since Sonic 1 remastered include a lot of features cut from the game as well as additional characters.

This however was speculation… Until now.

In a fact sheet posted on their Press Vault site, Sega have confirmed that Sonic 2 Remastered will include exclusive content for the mobile release, however they’ve not gone into details regarding what the content is.

They’ve also re-confirmed the release date to be November 2013, and stated that this will be a 1 player experience only… so no 2 player online Vs mode?

One of the greatest videogames of all time re-mastered for mobile devices!

Obviously this means people are going to speculate as to what the exclusive content is… do I dare dream of a Hidden Palace?

  1. I imagine it’s going to be playable Knuckles, Tails can fly S3-style, and maybe if we’re super lucky, a completed HPZ

  2. Watch it just be everything from Sonic 2: Lost Levels, terrible level design and enemy placement and all!

    also Mighty playable but no one likes Mighty

        1. The creator of Mighty took the copyrights with him when he left Sega so, Sega aren’t allowed to use him without tracking down the guy IIRC

  3. “iOS and Android”? But what about home consoles!? All I have are just re-releases of the same exact games that were released 20 years ago on my PS3! Why aren’t I getting the remasters for any of my console systems!?

  4. Going to get this!

    I’d agree, Tails can fly, kuckles in sonic 2 to be made availiable….maybe, dare i say it…METAL sonic as a playable?!

    bTW what are the “extaras” in sonic 1 IoS / Amdroid that were dropped from the original? Apart from Tails and knuckles, the game seems to be the exact same one i played back in 1991!

    1. In debug mode, you can activate the elemental shields, as well as some hidden items from the original beta of Sonic the Hedgehog.

  5. “destroy the devious Dr. Eggman.” I thought the main goal was to destroy the devious Dr. Eggman’s PLANS, not destroy Dr. Eggman himself! I too hope for full hidden palace zone! 😉

  6. What the fucking hell SEGA…WHY ONLY 1 PLAYER?! The only reaso I was planning on getting this for my iphone is because It would probably have an online 2 Player Versus Mode, that would’ve put this game over the top. Dammit SEGA your were no good at putting online in your consoles games then, and you still are today.

  7. One of my favorite parts of Sonic 2 iOS was the local multiplayer. It will be a sad day when the update comes. :'(

  8. I have no idea how could I construct accurate petition about Sonic CD DLC & Multiplayer Mode(including achievements list) in Sonic 2(2013)likewise Sonic 1&2 on Home Consoles.Would you like to support this petition idea concept?
