American and EuropeanEdit

Dr. Robotnik is back, and this time he's planning a global disaster. He needs workers to create a doomsday machine that can take over the world. So he's trapped all the animals, turning them into robots and forcing them to build his ultimate weapon, the Death Egg. Robotnik rules factories, refineries and cities. He's grabbed control of almost everything, except the seven Chaos Emeralds: magnificent gems believed to hold exceptional powers. The Emeralds are buried somewhere on the island, and it's up to Sonic to find them before the Doctor does...


While cruising the planet in his biplane, the Tornado, Sonic notices smoke emanating from the plane's engine. He makes a forced landing on a nearby island that is particularly lush with greenery. He's landed on West Side Island, which, as the folklore goes, was once the home of a flourishing civilization. The people of the island utilized the power of seven mysterious stones for the advancement of their society. However, their prosperity eventually lead to avarice, which did not sit well with the gods. The displeased deities took the stones away from the people and sealed them off.

After a few days on the island, it occurs to Sonic that he's being followed. His pursuer is a young fox with two tails, who, upon being discovered, dashes into the shade of a nearby tree. Sonic ignores him and zooms off, but the fox whirls his two tails like a propeller and follows the blue stranger at full speed. Sonic is impressed both with the fox's tenacity and his ability to keep up, so he decides to let him tag along. He learns that his new companion is named Miles Prower, though the animals of the island call him "Tails" after his unique mutation. Tails also seems to have a fascination with all things mechanical, and immediately falls in love with the Tornado.

While relaxing by the Tornado one day, Sonic and Tails are shaken by a huge explosion from the center of the island. The forest is ablaze and robots are scouring the area. It doesn't take Sonic three guesses to figure out who's behind the disruption: Dr. Eggman has caught wind of the Chaos Emerald legend, and is tearing the island apart in search of the legendary stones. He needs fuel for his Death Egg, a planet-sized space station with unthinkable power. Sonic and Tails take off to locate the Emeralds before Eggman, and squash his evil ambition once more.
