3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Releases on July 22nd in Japan

So now we finally have news about 3D Sonic 2 after its announcement back in April! We have the Japanese website, and thanks to Nintendaan, we have the info that the game will support co-op play, but each player will need the game.


Nintendaan was also kind enough to record the trailer and snap the screenshots from the eShop page as seen below!

3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is set to release on July 22nd on the 3DS eShop in Japan for 864 yen.

  1. I thought sonic 2 3D meant a 3D remake but it’s just another port I started with the 3D series even though I grew up with the classics I don’t remember them with nostalgia so another 2D game is so boring 3D with SA controls is all i ask

    1. One thing to keep in mind port or not is that these games take a tremendous amount of work to convert to 3D.
      Even though its not what you hoped for, hopefully your aware of this.
      ( I was not saying you didn’t know this already I was just making sure you didn’t think it was a lazy port )

    1. Dunno, tablet version seems like the superior one. With new content, like Knuckles, refined engine, online multiplayer, and Hidden Palace Zone.

  2. Heh, it’s coming out on my birthday! Too bad I won’t be able to buy it though. Lol

  3. I’ve heard of a new gameplay mode for the game called Ring Keep. Players begin a level with 10 rings free of charge. If you take a hit, you only lose half of your rings instead of all of them.
