Sega has today announced the North American release of Sonic Heroes for the GameCube. The game is Sega's first original Sonic the Hedgehog title in three years, and it challenges players to control three players simultaneously as they progress through 14 stages en route to a confrontation with the evil Dr. Eggman.
"Sonic Heroes represents a milestone in the history of Sega as the first entertainment title launching across all three next-generation console systems," said Hide Irie, president and chief operating officer of Sega of America. "We are excited to deliver what we feel is the best Sonic game yet to the largest possible gaming audience."
PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of Sonic Heroes are currently scheduled for release on January 27. For more information, check out our previous coverage of the game.
