This new platformer will have players setting off on an all-new 2D adventure through the mystical Northstar Islands as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy. All-new Emerald powers are also in play, allowing you to move and attack in "dynamic new ways". Early impressions have been positive, with features like a series-first co-op campaign seeming to be welcome additions to the regular formula. You can treat yourself to a copy below.
