This week’s Arcade title begins with an S, and no, before you all jump with joy it isn’t SWOS! Instead, this week we have a blue spiky character making a second return to Xbox LIVE Marketplace with Sonic The Hedgehog 2. This Wednesday at 09:00 GMT you and another LIVE buddy will be able to play co-op as Sonic and Tails, as well as over local play, more details and cost can be found below.
With his new Super Spin Dash and “Tails” the Fox, Sonic is back and better than ever in Sonic The Hedgehog 2! Defy gravity in hair-raising loop-de-loops, bounce like a pinball and race like lightning. Play against friends at home or against others over Xbox LIVE in this classic game.
- Classic Sonic action: One of the world’s most famous video game characters comes to Xbox LIVE in one of his fans’ favorite titles. Experience the thrill of the fastest hedgehog in the universe.
- Enhanced graphics and sound: The game stays true to the original, but takes full advantage of high-definition graphics, with enhanced sound effects.
- Achievements and leaderboards: Take on the challenge of new achievements to conquer, and use the leaderboards to compare scores among friends and the rest of the Xbox LIVE world.
