Today, Sonic returns to his 2D platforming roots with Sonic Superstars. The new game pairs the fast side-scrolling action of classic Sonic titles with a 2.5D art style, new powers, and an all-new story and setting.

After Sonic Frontiers experimented with open-world Sonic gameplay, Sonic Superstars is a fresh return to the classic side-scrolling formula. Sonic is joined by his familiar pals Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and the all-new character Trip, who team up to take down series villains Dr. Eggman and Fang the Hunter. Sonic and his friends are all playable solo, in local co-op modes with up to four players, or in the online battle mode for up to eight players.
