Sonic Adventure 2 spins onto Xbox 360 and PS3!
Sega’s been very busy in its archives of late, first unleashing a HD version of Jet Set Radio, and now the double whammy of Sonic Adventure 2 and Nights: Into Dreams, two Sega classics from yesteryear. We’ve got the lowdown on their comeback right here.
Up first is the Dreamcast’s Sonic Adventure 2, arguably Sonic’s finest outing since his Mega Drive days. It’s out now on the PlayStation Network and on Friday 5 October on Xbox Live, and packs in all the original features of the Dreamcast version, upscaled to pinsharp HD for £6.49 (800 Microsoft Points). Sega’s also throwing in the separate battle mode that debuted in the Nintendo Gamecube version of Sonic Adventure 2 – that’s an extra £1.99 or 240 Microsoft Points though.

Alongside Sonic Adventure 2, Sega has upgraded another hit from a decade ago, Nights: Into Dreams. The Sega Saturn game from the 1990s still looks impressive now, with its vast 3D dreamscapes standing up to the test of time surprisingly well – it costs the same £6.49/800 Microsoft Points.
Interestingly, Sega says that both games are coming soon for PC as well, so we’ll keep an eye out for you there.
Glad to get your Sonic fix on again, or should Sega let it rest? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments below.
