A longplay of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグ２) is the highly successful sequel of the original Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Mega Drive. Put into development not long after the completion of the first game, the title would go on to become one of the most successful video games of all time, selling millions of units and cementing the franchise as a cultural phenomenon in the west.
Introducing Miles "Tails" Prower in the role he was created for, the game was released worldwide on November 24th, 1992. Dubbed "Sonic 2sday," the simultaneous release was an unusual move for the time. The game eventually replaced the original Sonic the Hedgehog as the default pack-in title for the Mega Drive, being bundled with the redesigned Mega Drive II model.
The game is also the first in the "Death Egg Saga", a storyline that would continue in the sequels Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic & Knuckles, and Sonic the Hedgehog 4.
