Sonic Adventure 2 & Nights into Dreams Release October 2nd

Posted on September 17, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Sega continues their recent trend of releasing HD ports of previous generation classics with the release of Sonic Adventure 2 HD and Nights into Dreams HD early next month. Both of these games will be available individually for $9.99 on Playstation Network and Xbox on October 2nd & 5th respectively.

Similar to the DX Addon for the HD Port of Sonic Adventure the sequel will have an optional $5 add-on. The “battle mode” addon allows players to gain access to the previously GameCube exclusive multiplayer modes. Nights Into Dreams also has its own expansion content, Christmas Nights, an add-on that was originally available through gaming magazines and special orders. Unlike Battle Mode Christmas Nights will be available free of charge.

I cannot wait to rip up the streets of San Francisco in City Escape, even just for old time’s sake. Sure, the game might be dated but that level makes the $10 entry price worth every penny!


Sonic Adventure 2 HD Grinds Online This Fall

Posted on July 14, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Sonic Adventure 2, one of the best 3D Sonic titles from the last generation will be grinding its way onto the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation network later this fall. The announcement was made at the San Diego Comic Con, after word about the port leaked online a few months back.

SEGA’s brief trailer announcing the title acknowledges the leaks, stating that the game will “leak on to consoles this fall”. Not much else is known about the HD port of the game but if the 2009 port of Crazy Taxi and the 2010 port of the original Sonic Adventure are any indication they’ll be up-rezed versions of the Dreamcast original with achievements and possibly the GameCube exclusive Battle multiplayer modes.

I’ve played Adventure 2 on both the GameCube and Dreamcast and both versions still remain in my gaming collection until this day. I look forward to grinding down the streets of City Escape on my SOAP shoes.. Damn product placement, it’s still effective 11 years later.
