The best Sonic game is coming to 3DS next week

Sonic's a bit like the kid who peaked in high school; all of his happiest moments are spent recreating the past. It may be a little sad, but at least he'll be able to relive the good old days in three dimensions soon: 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is coming to the 3DS eShop on October 8.

Regarded by many of Sonic's IRL friends as the pinnacle of his adventures, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has admittedly been re-released a time or two in the past. But if you've played any of Sega's other 3D updates (like 3D Gunstar Heroes or 3D Out Run) you know why this is worth getting excited about. Just imagine sinking into those beautiful backgrounds as they scroll by...

Oh, and if you're still bristling at that headline because you feel Sonic 3 or CD or Adventure or whatever are clearly the best Sonic game, I'll let this image from the official Sonic Twitter account do the talking for me.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
