The gameplay is similar to Sonic the Fighters and Sonic Battle in which players choose Sonic characters and Sonic themed stages to fight on and start to dual eachother to see who is the winner or is the last person in the arena. In fights the players will be able to run, kick and jump and these will be able to be controlled by the D-pad so the player can kick upwards, downwards or sideways and then players will be able to create combo moves in combat. Every character also has a Special Move which is unique to them and players can use this when a characters Gauge is full. Each character is classed into his/her suitable type which will give them advantages and disadvantages.
