Sonic Cubed and Advanced

Sonic Adventure 2 did very well, and Sega now hopes to capture the hearts of other members of the Nintendo faithful

Last month (pinch, punch and all that), it was reported that Sega would announce a new Sonic game at the World Hobby Fair in Tokyo in the middle of July. Speculation centred around an Xbox-exclusive game in the Adventure series, but whether or not that is to go ahead, Cube and GBA-owning fans of the blue hedgehog still have reason to be cheerful. According to an indecipherable Japanese press release, thankfully translated by a handful of sources, Sega is set to release the original Sonic Adventure on GameCube, along with Sonic Mega Collection - comprising the three original Mega Drive/Genesis releases. Furthermore, GameBoy Advance owners can look forward to another original adventure in the shape of Sonic Advance 2, which follows on from the success of this year's GBA release. Details are otherwise scant, but with the world and its dog waiting for the now-infamous World Hobby Fair, it shouldn't be long before we find out just what makes the Cube version of Sonic Adventure tick and how Sonic Advance 2 is shaping up.
