Fans of the Sonic series rejoice, because Sonic's coming back in the PSP-exclusive Sonic Rivals 2. SEGA announced today that Sonic Rivals 2 is currently in development and will ship in the fall of 2007.
So what can we expect in this new installment of hedgehog fun? How about a revamped rival “jostling” gameplay system for tighter head-to-head competition. Not satisfied? Well, there's more my friends. A brand new Battle mode allows two players to jump into six different multiplayer challenges by sharing just one disc using the Wi-Fi function. Rivalry is also improved with upgraded power-ups and range weapons allowing players to attack or defend themselves regardless of their position.
Want more? Miles “Tails” Prower and other new characters have been added to the mix and each will have their own unique signature moves that fit their personalities. If you're not feeling confident in taking on challengers, gamers can now enjoy each level at their own pace in the new single-player mode.
Sonic has come a long way since his 16-bit introduction to the world on the SEGA Genesis. Just check out the new screens in our images gallery.
