Sonic and Tails are back for another adventure as they again battle the evil Dr. Eggman (AKA Dr. Robotnik), who is desperately trying to collect all the Chaos Emeralds in order to rebuild his Death Egg. Our heroes must find the Chaos Emeralds before Dr. Eggman does, but winning the race won’t be easy — a new adversary, Knuckles the Echidna, has arrived on the scene and will do whatever he can to keep Sonic and Tails from reaching their goal. Grab all the golden rings, find various bonus zones, and overcome Knuckles and Dr. Eggman as you rocket through the third chapter in Sonic’s adventures.
Back in the 16-bit days, Sonic fans had to wait almost two years for the release of the third Sonic the Hedgehog game after second one. But thanks to the Virtual Console service, Wii owners only had to wait three months. At first glance, it’ll probably seem incredible to you that Sega needed any length of time at all to produce what, on the surface, merely appears to be a formulaic follow-up to Sonic the Hedgehog 2. However, once you really dig in, you’ll come to appreciate the many little improvements that help set Sonic the Hedgehog 3 apart from its predecessors.

Sonic 3 basically picks up where Sonic 2 left off. The opening cinematic sequence shows Super Sonic and Tails tracking Robotnik’s spaceship from the previous game to an island that we’ll soon learn is called Angel Island. Right off the bat, they’re stopped by Robotnik’s new partner and Sonic’s soon-to-be rival, Knuckles the Echidna. Knuckles will appear frequently throughout the rest of the game to help the characters segue from one stage to the next and to act as a boss on occasion. Unlike Sonic 2, which only had a couple of brief story scenes near the end of the game, Sonic 3 is loaded with brief transitions and lengthier story sequences. These help establish the personalities of both Sonic and Knuckles, as well as gradually reveal how Robotnik managed to enlist Knuckles’ aid in the first place.
