Hm, from what I can muster from google translate, it mentions something about Sonic not being a corporate character...Something about that is resonating to me and i don't know why.

I don't know whether to post this in the Sonic Mania thread or whatever, but in the game's Sprites/Global/Animals.bin file, it names the currently unnamed rat animal friend (this guy), "Micky".

It goes with the naming scheme of the other animal friends.

Micky has long been the (entirely plausible) joke name for the mouse amongst the fan base. Still, the team supposedly saw design material for the classic games, so there's a chance it could be the real name.

I'm confident that artwork and a name does exist for the mouse, we just haven't seen it. The Sega art book only featured a few of the animal friends' Sonic 2 art. The Sonic Jam Character House featured some of the missing Sonic 2 animal art, but for some reason only showed the original 7 animals.

Not sure where to post this image but do we have a clearer picture of this? Just found it among some really old files. I remember this was an ebay auction image as well:

I have actually seen that fruit machine in person, albeit in a state of disrepair. There is a video of the machine in action on YouTube.

In a slightly relevant post about fruit machines. Up until recently, I was unaware that there was official Nintendo licensed fruit machines commissioned in Europe a few years back. The only two I know of was an old Donkey Long machine possibly in the late 80's/early 90's and a Mario Kart 64 machine which uses sound bytes from the game including character lines.

Oh look, another game theory sonic video. It is entertaining until he uses both the British and Archie Comic universes as 100% official game universe fact. Or that he implies the 7 dragonballs cause Goku to go Super Saiyan.

Even taken as a joke Game Theory fails pretty hard because of its persistent failure to adequate research. Ridiculous fan theories are one thing, but ridiculous fan theories that rely on wrong facts and probably misunderstood data are another. Game Theory is consistently the latter.

That fruit machine was everywhere in the late 90s. Still come across it now and again at travelling funfairs. Pretty standard JPM machine really. IIRC Sega owned the company at one point.
