Why be bothered by this... we have scrapped levels and S1 levels mixed with S2 levels and a S3 save screen with Flying Tails and Knuckles... who can team together. I don't need reasons. I simply need a download link. :D I suppose if you wanna ask why... ask why Knuckles is even in this game. He wasn't planned for S2, as far as I know at least... Though I think some kind of character backstory similar to his was planned at some point or another. But like I said... why ask why?
