■ Sonic Superstars, the Newest Title in the Sonic Series Out Now!


Sonic Superstars is a brand-new high-speed action game that combines the classic feel of the 2D side-scrolling Sonic series with crisp 3D graphics.

An Evolution of the 2D Side-Scroller


The series’ 2D side-scrolling action is back and better than ever, with new visuals, zones, songs, and mechanics! Newcomers and longtime fans alike can enjoy a brand-new experience that still maintains that classic Sonic charm!

Introducing Just Some of the Zones Your Adventures Will Take You!




Sonic Superstars Release - 03


Your pursuit of Fang will lead you to a dim, overgrown jungle. As you slide speedily down ropes of ivy, zipping through the dense thickets, you may suddenly plunge straight into darkness!

This zone also sets the stage for a Sonic-exclusive act where you can enjoy a thrilling chase with Fang.




Sonic Superstars Release - 04


A bustling park where you can enjoy colorful neon lights and fireworks. By day, it’s a vibrant world for thrill-seekers, but by night, the gloomy atmosphere creeps in… There are plenty of unique and fun Sonic attractions like pinball machines and jet coasters! At the end of the zone, a giant Dr. Eggman lies in wait…





A weird and wonderful world where everything is pixelated – even Sonic and his friends! Transform into jellyfish, mice, rockets, and more to overcome the quirks of the digital world!


A Colorful Cast of Characters


In Sonic Superstars, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy appear alongside Sonic as playable characters. Each character has their own unique skills, in addition to basic maneuvers such as running, jumping, and Spin Dashing. Sonic has the Drop Dash and Tails can fly. Knuckles has Glide and Wall Climb, while Amy has Hammer Smash. Utilize their skills to confront their arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman and Fang, and face off against all-new enemies as well!



Unlock brand-new Emerald Powers by collecting Chaos Emeralds from Special Stages hidden throughout Acts. Emerald Powers offer various abilities such as creating clones to defeat enemies and swimming up waterfalls. After you activate an Emerald Power, you can use the ability as many times as you want within the time limit. If you run out of time, just run past a Star Post to replenish your Emerald Power timer. Try out each Emerald Power for yourself and discover new ways to experience this high-speed adventure!
