Sonic R: Second Run was a recently comfirmed sequel to Sonic R, and will be released in late September 2014. Sonic R: Second Run is a racing game that features twelve playable characters, ten tracks to race in, and five modes to play.


A few days after the events of Sonic Generations 2, Sonic and his best friend Tails relax in Green Hill Zone, and notice a sign on a nearby tree. Sonic reads the sign out loud to his friend.

"Second World Grand Prix! You must not bring any vechicles, weapons, or other objects into the race. The first race begins at Angel Island. The best racer will bring home a golden trophy!"

Sonic then notices something floating towards Angel Island. Dr. Eggman in his Eggmobile. Sonic sighs and takes off to Angel Island in the Tornado plane. However, he is not the only one racing... Knuckles, Amy, Shadow, Silver, and even Jet the Hawk are coming along to race, hoping to bring back the trophy that dream of. However, they do not realize Dr. Eggman has brought along company...
