    @SMpai Again, thanks for sharing! Although any context would be nice, too. Is this also Ohshima's?

  3. This feels vaguely familiar, like it was put up by Hisashi Eguchi onto his twitter. I mean, it does look like the intro where Sonic uses a mountain to build momentum to launch himself to Little Planet.

    The speedometer is a cute touch I kinda wish made it in.

    Yes this also is Ohshima sans art, I sadly do not have context but I believe it was used for making of the intro movie

    Oshima had shared this on his Twitter a while back and said that it was an early Special Stage concept for Sonic CD.

    Just browsed through all his tweeted pics (and Sonic CD dev docs in the wiki) and couldn't find it. Are you sure?
    EDIT: Found them, see below.

    I thought I had seen this one before somewhere that’s why I just wrote rare but I don’t see it on his twitter, could you send a link? Thank you

    Some of this art (Sonic rolling down the hill and leaping forward specifically) looks quite similar to the shots from the opening cutscene, so maybe they could be connected? I don't know.

    They both look like "Track & Field" style mini-games. Doesn't seem like there'd be enough "meat" on them to be full Special Stages. Then again, maybe that's why they were abandoned.
