ROM Information

3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a port of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Mega Drive. It was developed by M2 and released digitally for the Nintendo 3DS in 2015. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a side-scrolling platform game. It features a story similar to the first Sonic the Hedgehog’s (1991): Doctor Robotnik, a mad scientist, seeks the Chaos Emeralds to power his space station, the Death Egg, and traps the animal inhabitants of West Side Island in aggressive robots. 

As Sonic the Hedgehog, the player embarks on a journey to collect the Chaos Emeralds and stop Robotnik. Sonic 2 introduces the spin dash, which allows the player to curl while stationary for a speed boost, and Miles “Tails” Prower, a fox with two tails who acts as Sonic’s sidekick. In the default single-player game mode, the player controls Sonic and Tails simultaneously; a second player can join in at any time and control Tails separately. The player can also choose to play as Sonic or Tails individually. The game takes place across 11 zones with 20 levels (“acts”).

New features

  • A new mode called “Ring Keeper” where the player starts each Act with ten Rings and only loses half their Rings when hit.
  • Stereoscopic 3D.
  • The 2-player VS. and co-op of this port is utilized with wireless co-op play.
  • A screen filter for emulating the visuals of old-fashion television sets.
  • Customizable controls of the player’s choosing.
  • Different sound options.
  • Options to play in Japanese (Rev. 01) or International (Rev. 00) modes.
  • Save states were added.
  • A new mode called “Super Sonic Mode” that is unlocked after beating the game once. Here, the player starts with all Chaos Emeralds unlocked, allowing Super Sonic to be playable from the start. and gives the player fifty Rings at the beginning of each Act.
  • Initiating the main menu’s “Stage Select” feature will automatically activate Level Select without the player having to enter its associated cheat code.
  • An entirely original credits sequence that features all of the Badniks found throughout the game, with most of them being destroyed by either Sonic or Tails (with the exception of Buzzer, Octus, Shellcracker, and Balkiry. Asteron was technically not destroyed by Sonic or Tails, but they still released an Animal when exploding).

What if the ROM is encrypted?

If you find a ROM that's encrypted, you need to use the Batch CIA 3DS Decryptor, created by Matif.

The ROM isn't working correctly?

Not all games are fully compatible with Citra. If you do find a game that's not working, try using the new Lime3DS emulator, the continuation of Citra since its shutdown.
