Inclusion of Sonic 2 Music in Upcoming Sonic Movie “Dream Come True” for the Game’s Composer

Masato Nakamura, the man who composed the music for Sonic 1 and 2 on the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive, expressed excitement over the news that one of his compositions will be in the next Sonic movie. A remix of one of his tracks, Emerald Hill Zone, popped up in the recent Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie tease.

In a blog post, Nakamura expressed his feelings over the inclusion:

I am very happy to share the news. One of my compositions, “Emerald Hill Zone” will be used in the movie “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” which will come out in 2022.

When I composed the music for “Sonic the Hedgehog 1&2”.I tried to write a soundtrack for the movie. I imagined the game like a movie.

After 30 years later, my music for the game becomes a part of the movie soundtrack of “Sonic the Hedgehog”.

Literally, it’s a dream comes true.

This isn’t the first time his work has appeared in a movie, as a jazz rendition of Green Hill Zone appeared at the end of the previous Sonic movie. You can read Nakamura’s entire blog post in the source at the bottom.

The Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie is set to begin filming next month, and is scheduled for release on April 8, 2022.

  1. Love that Emerald Hill remix! And I’m hoping it’s not the only song that will make it from the game to the movie (fingers crossed for Chemical Plant).

  2. Oh FINALLY! Sonic 2 was my first Sonic game ever, and I’ve been pining for an Emerald Hill remix ever since Generations came out. This is my dream come true!
