    Yeah, I have also noticed that. It seems to be a modified (more tan than usual?) Sonic Crackers life icon.

    I can't wait to see this all in 60 fps!

    Also can't wait to see if there's going to be any Hidden Palace action too :D

    It would more sense for that to be on Wii U though.

    Taxman, sure would be nice if you could confirm two players on one tablet multiplayer. You'll be my best friend forever~.

    Im sure the Wii U would get these if console versions come about, but, Nintendo's deal only works for 3 games, only 1 of which being unannounced. The prospects of this (as a compilation) being exclusive to Nintendo, is slim to none, and a HUGE slap to many fans of this series.

    Multi-platform Sega, multi-platform.

    It makes me a sad panda that Sonic 1 still hasn't come to PC and this will most likely not anytime soon =(

    Still awesome to see!

    Sonic 1 and 2 are available on PS3/360 (even though they are the raw genesis versions) but not on Wii U yet.

    I do believe Nintendo would love something like this. I'd get a Wii U more than sure, I already want one for Lost World, I just need more reasons.

    Yeah watch someone is going to suggest that non-operational Bluestacks emulator next. that thing was a real lovely experence, never got past the installation screen -_-;

    So are these remake-ports contractually bound to stay on mobiles? I know that CD wasn't but that may have been because of Sonic 4.

    I don't know if my computer could handle that port. 32MB graphics card? Who could possibly have a rig that powerful?

    I'm a bit confused. Don't Genesis games already run at 60FPS? o_O

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    Sonic 2 is my classic game. I'll buy the remake, for sure, but I do hope I don't get overly critical of it.

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    The special stages in Sonic 2 and Sonic CD sure as hell didn't.

    More specifically, the pseudo-FMV background in the Sonic 2 Special Stage doesn't, while everything else does.

    CD came out on everything because unlike Sonic 1 - 3K it hadn't been rereleased yet. While the versions of Sonic 1 and 2 on the 360 and PS3 are shoddy at best, they still exist and it might be too expensive to give such a significant update to an already existing product (I think patches cost money on the 360, I'm not sure about the PS3). Plus those versions of Sonic 1 and 2 check with the version of Sonic 3 and Knuckles to make Sonic 2 and Knuckles work and it's just a mess. They're probably waiting to see how worth it it would be financially to throw these on the 360/PS3, otherwise they'll just wait for the Xbox One and the PS4.

    You know guys I've always wondered if the S2 special stages were a limitation of the hardware or a piss poor attempt to animate wallpapers to give off a 3D effect. If it's a piss poor attempt I'm surprised no one in the hacking community has tried to improve it as it's common opinion that the special stages let S2 down due to it's frame stutter.

    Just a thought, but I wonder if the Sonic 2 special stages will be full 3D this time, with polygons and everything. I think I remember a mobile version of Sonic 2 that attempted this.

    I'm sure it would look better on more powerful hardware anyway.
