metalsonicSega sent Famitsu a few details about Sonic Generations. The magazine confirmed Metal Sonic from Sonic CD is in the upcoming game as a rival for Modern and Classic Sonic. Metal Sonic is said to have a classic style. I suppose that means Metal Sonic’s model is based on his Sonic CD sprite.


Sonic Generations has Chemical Plant Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 in the game. Like all stages, there will be classic style and modern style versions of this level.


On Nintendo 3DS, Sonic Generations has an original special stage where Sonic runs into a tube in stereoscopic 3D.


Sonic Generations will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo 3DS with different content later this yaer.

Update: Here’s how Metal Sonic looks like Sonic Generations.

  • I miss Metal Sonic’s Sonic Heroes design. It was so awesome!

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      *THAT DESIGN* was so radical! It made him look like the final boss. Turns out he was. He even had the cool boss theme “Metal Overlord” (What I’m Made Of) .

    • …Sonic Heroes ruined Metal Sonic for me. The (what felt like an) hour-long transformation scene into Metal Overlord or whatever might be the single most irritating moment in the Sonic franchise to me. Ugh, and that atrocious voice…

      I like Metal Sonic to be his (er, “it’s”…?) normal-looking self, like in Sonic Adventure 2’s 2P mode.

    • I like the Sonic and Knuckles super version! AKA Metal Sonic from Super Mario Bros Z! LOL

      • xAKUM3TSUx

        Do yo mean Super Saiyan Met- err…Super Metal Sonic lolz

  • Glad to hear he’ll be in the game. About time he made his comeback. <3

  • It’s a legendary game. You make me think of the past.

  • xAKUM3TSUx

    This game is looking better everytime i hear/see it. Sega is coming for my wallet with this- and im not running.

  • “On Nintendo 3DS, Sonic Generations has an original special stage where Sonic runs into a tube in stereoscopic 3D.”

    By original you mean new…?

    But it’s actually a reuse of the Sonic Heroes special stage right…?
    …Either that or I’ve been looking at bogus screenshots, lol.

  • I haven’t been this excited about a Sonic game ever since the MegaDrive (or Genesis, as you yankees dub it :P) days!

  • AnimeRemix

    I love Metal Sonic! And Sonic CD… Ah… The best Sonic game ever… 

    Metal having both his classic and modern form? YESH! So can’t wait! I’m going crazy! ><
