Sonic is returning to Xbox Live. Microsoft announced that Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will be coming to the Arcade this Wednesday. The sequel to the fast paced, blue-blurred, Sonic features a new Spin-Dash move and a new character. Tails joins Sonic on his adventure to stop Dr. Robotnik from taking over the world, which he plans to accomplish by imprisoning animals and taking control of them. Yeah, we wouldn’t claim Sonic The Hedgehog 2 has an enthralling story.

The second Sonic game is the one that started the third-person racing view in the series. The Special Stages involved Sonic running through a half-pipe in faked 3-D space. This also came into play during multiplayer, which had you controlling either Sonic or Tails through regular zones and a special stage. It made the hours you spent visiting a friend’s house as they played the game a little more tolerable, as you could join in. Sonic 2 is just a bigger, and faster, version of the original. But it’s still Sonic, so there’s fun to be had.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 joins the SEGA Vintage Collection on Xbox Live this Wednesday for 400 Microsoft points.
