Sega of America has announced the release of Sonic Adventure 2. The game arrives just days before the 10th anniversary of the release of the first Sonic game. The primary story mode in Sonic Adventure 2 is separated into the so-called hero side and dark side quests. Through more than 30 action stages, these two storylines intertwine as part of a larger plot. Aside from the story mode, the game also features kart racing, two-player head-to-head racing and battle, and downloadable online goodies.
"Since the 1991 release of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic has been a leading icon in the video game industry and a consistent top-seller for Sega,'' said Charles Bellfield, vice president of corporate and marketing communications at Sega of America. "With the global release of Sonic Adventure 2, Sega is celebrating the 10-year heritage of the Sonic franchise and delivering the best Sonic game yet."
Sonic Adventure 2 was developed by Sonic Team, under the supervision of Yuji Naka, primarily at Sega's San Francisco offices. It carries a suggested retail price of $39.95.
