At SEGA’s Sonic Boom event during the San Diego Comic-Con, fans of the Blue Blur were in for a pleasant surprise.

An HD remake of Sonic Adventure 2 is coming soon to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. (Unlike most of SEGA’s HD remakes, a Windows/Steam release has yet to be determined). SEGA’s announcement of the remake comes almost a month after a listing for an XBLA version appeared on Xbox.com. Along with games such as Jet Grind Radio and NiGHTS Into DreamsSonic Adventure 2 is part of the ongoing “SEGA Heritage” series of HD remakes that started with a 2010 HD remake of Sonic Adventure

Originally released in June 2001 to coincide with Sonic’s 10th anniversary, Sonic Adventure 2 was hailed by critics as the last great Dreamcast game. A remake on the GameCube under the name Sonic Adventure 2: Battle had more lukewarm critical reception, but ended up becoming a huge financial success in its own right.

The HD remake will feature offline multiplayer, leaderboards, and downloadable content, presumably the extras featured in Battle. If you missed out on this Dreamcast classic or its GameCube port, Sonic Adventure 2 is heading to PSN and XBLA this fall.

Try Sonic Generations while you wait, available on the 3DS and PS3 on Amazon.

About Will Whitehurst

Will joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign soon after news broke of that infamous French interview about Xenoblade. Subsequently, he got actively involved and became a staff member in July/August 2011. He is currently the head of the Japanese translation team, and loves to play, discuss, debate and learn more about games. Will gravitates towards unconventional action games and RPGs, but plays pretty much anything except Madden. He is also currently attending college, honing his Japanese skills and preparing for medical school. (Coincidentally, Trauma Center is one of his favorite game series of all time.)
