    fixed the URL that someone else added to my previous submission. not sure why the NINJA disclaimer is needed at all? it's not like the online ROM patcher doesn't support it
  • Games
    This game was released in the US in 2019 as Trials of Mana. Because that is the earliest official English title I changed it to Primary Title.
  • Translations
    this should be an Addendum, since it's based off the work of a different translation project

    removed Whirlpool-era subjective opinions (plus the ridiculous and unnecessary "NINJA is superior to IPS" paragraph)

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Sega Genesis

Game Description:

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a platforming action video game. Developed by Sonic Team and Sega Technical Institute in 1992, it introduces new mechanics to the series, and the lovable young fox known as Miles “Tails” Prower. The massively successful sequel to the original Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2 stands as the second best-selling Sonic game in history, and is considered by many fans as the best Sonic game.

A 2-D side-scrolling platformer, you control Sonic, a blue-colored hedgehog that runs pretty darn fast across the stages (zones as they are called in the game). Alternatively, the player can also play as Tails, who either functions identical to Sonic. Scattered throughout the zones are golden rings that Sonic can collect, which allows him to not only take damage, but allow access to special stages. The special stage, which is now a pseudo-3D tube, involves collecting a certain amount of rings and avoiding bombs.

Returning from his previous defeat, Dr. Ivo Robotnik plans world domination once again by kidnapping and converting animals into robots, and collecting the seven Chaos Emeralds. Unlike his previous frenzy with Sonic, Robotnik has built the Death Egg, a giant battle station orbiting the Earth, and intends to conquer with it. Sonic (now followed by Miles “Tails” Prower) set off to collect the Chaos Emeralds and defeat Robonik once and for all.
