Sonic Retro Adventure (ソニック·ザ·ヘッジホッグファイブ (Sonic the Hedgehog 5) in Japan) is a 2-D platformer that is going to be released for the PS4, X-Box One and Wii U. It is a game that is like the original Sonic games.


Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic is the most well-rounded character. His speed is usual, his jumps are usual and he gets the insta-shield from Sonic 3 & Knuckles again.

Miles "Tails" Prower

Tails plays like he did in Sonic 3 & Knuckles, except his is a tiny bit slower. He can fly and swim as well.

Knuckles the Echidna

Like Tails, Knuckles plays like he did in Sonic 3 & Knuckles. He can glide, climb walls and his strength outmatches all the other characters. He is also the slowest character.

Amy Rose

An unlockable character. Amy is as fast as Tails and uses her hammer in quite a few techniques. When running at full speed, Amy can do a somersault which is 2 times as high as a regular jump. Amy can also hit enemies with her hammer and in mid-air, she can do a hammer spin which can make her jumps longer.

Espio the Chameleon

An unlockable character. Espio's speed is in between Knuckles' speed and Tails' speed. He can damage mid-air enemies, by pressing the jump button in mid-air, by throwing shurikens. He can also turn invisible for 3 seconds when you press up on the joy-stick/D-Pad and the jump buttton. This has to recharge for 30 seconds. When at full speed, he can also climb up walls.

Mighty the Armadillo

The final unlockable character. Mighty is the best character in the game. His speed matches Sonic's, in mid-air, when you press the jump button, he can do a double jump and , for the cost of 25 rings, can destroy every ground enemy on the screen. This move needs a minute recharging though.

Chaos/Super Emeralds and Chaos Portals

Chaos Emeralds

Chaos Emeralds (and Super Emeralds) are found by finding Special rings in acts. In every act, there are 2 special rings.

Super Emeralds

Super Emeralds found like Chaos Emeralds except their special rings are white instead of gold. There is only 1 super ring in each act, and none of them appear until you get at least 1 chaos emerald.

Chaos Portal

Chaos Portals can only be found once in every zone. Inside the Chaos Portal, you play a mini-game. In the mini-game, you have to play a roulette. There are 5 options: +10 rings, -10 rings, Jackpot, Robotnik and Chaos. Jackpot gives you 100 rings, Robotnik gets rid of 50 rings and Chaos shows you the way to a Chaos/Super Emerald ring.
