Sega Ages Sonic 2 (Switch) will include ‘Knuckles in Sonic 2’

After a VERY long absence since being revealed back in September 2018, Sega Ages: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has finally resurfaced via the newest issue of the Japanese magazine Famitsu! While there’s no date just yet, we did get a key new tidbit; it will indeed include the lock-on content Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 that allows you to play through the entire game as Knuckles.

Also again the release will include the usual Super Sonic Mode and the Ring Keep Mode (as seen in the 3D Classics edition on 3DS), online rankings, and the drop dash as did Sega Ages Sonic the Hedgehog. Finally, as a reminder that it’s been previously reported that developer M2 were looking into including cut content, but so far that hasn’t panned out. We’ll be sure to let you know if anything new pops up.

  1. So they’re willing to re-release Knuckles in Sonic 2 as part of Sega Ages Sonic 2, but they’re still not re-releasing Sonic 3 & Knuckles. I’ve heard that it’s because of copyright issues for the music, I get that, but can’t they find a way around that?

    1. They should get Jun Senoe/crush 40 to make a new soundtrack and be upfront about it (unlike Crazy Taxi on XBLA) .
      At least then the game would still be available to play, either that or they should at least pay up and pass the cost on to us.

      Alas the only way to play S3&K is either through second hand or pirate.

  2. Maybe there is one way to solve the copyright/license issues
    new version/mix of the soundtracks by Jun Senoe/Crush 40/Tee Lopes (like he did on Sonic Mania Plus)

    at lease still play the original via GameCube (Sonic Mega Collection), PS2/Xbox (Sonic Mega Collection Plus) or Xbox 360 via Xbox One, who know make they release remastered/remake/fan game Sonic 3 A.I.R/Sonic 3 Complete (PC: Steam)

    “Welp” looking forward to Sega Ages: Sonic 2 and Knuckles in Sonic 2 :3
