  1. ANOTHER CD for T-Bird to get his merch grabbing hands on! 😉

    [IF Tony sends anything, I’ll put it up for a competition on here – that’s a promise! – T]

  2. I can’t help but shake the feeling that this and the rumours about the 20th Anniversary “Sonic Anniversary”, where it’s a remake of classic stages, has some kind of connection. Maybe it’s just for old time sake, I don’t know.

  3. This is great to be honest because Tony Harnell was such a legend back on the Sonic Adventure series it will be good to hear his remake on City Escape again

  4. It’s all good! It was a catchy tune… just so long as I don’t have to play that game again 🙂

  5. So wait, new Sonic Adventure Soundtrack and new version of a track from Sonic Adventure 2? It’s probably for the 20th anniversary but great! =D

  6. First the Sonic Adventure soundtrack, now a remake of a famous Sonic Adventure 2 song. Not to mention SA now being downloadable.

    What does this mean? 😀

  7. Whilst I would’ve liked a new song, i’m excited Harnell is back in the fold. I do wonder if he’ll be incorporating the Mercury Train in which would suggest an acoustic version!

  8. This just made my day. Holy crap oh my god. It’ll make my life if they make new versions of the Knuckles songs…

  9. Is there any given date to when this new song will come out? Anyone?

    [None yet – we will keep you updated – T]

  10. Interesting. I hope fanboys don’t start screaming on the internet saying this will be for a ‘Sonic Adventure 3’. If so I’ll thoroughly kick their ass. Anyway can’t wait but I’m too busy screaming lies.

  11. Oh my… YESH!! *ahem* That’s going to be just pure epic or epic fail. We’ll have to wait n’ see.

  12. Ok this year is gonna be AMAZING! Classic jazware sonic figures, New sonic games, New sonic adventure soundtrack plus this?….my past is hitting right in my face and im loving it!!!

  13. I can’t wait for my fav level song to be in SONIC GENERATIONS! AHHH! (I also am mad becuase when I played Sonic Adventure 2: Battle on my Wii, IT FROZE! MY GAME NEVER WORKED AGAIN!)
