Expect ever more zones by the time AS2R reaches a home console near you.
Gain new abilities and allies, who will help you reach new zones. Find the super secretly hidden Chaos Emeralds to unleash Sonic’s ultimate power.
With abilities, items, and powerups from modern Sonic games (and the classics) you’ll make Dr. Robotnik cry like a Metroid fan at E3.
