Cancelled 'Sonic 2 HD' Fan Remake Project Resurrected

545620 347908565246370 1030346203 nThanks to one dedicated fan the impressive-looking Sonic the Hedgehog 2 HD project is alive and spin-dashing once more. In March of 2012 the project was cancelled by the S2HD team due to friction between some team members resulting in a large portion of the game's being taken away from the team with no chance of it returning.

Now, however, a fan of the project has created their own engine and submitted it to the team. After testing the team decided they could move forward with the project using the new engine. There is no indication of when the public might see the fruits of this new engine but it's very pleasing nonetheless that work has begun anew on this promising project.

You can find out more about the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 HD project via their Facebook page.

Oh, I look forward to this, I've played the original many times, hopefully it will be as faithful to the original.

Joe, your SonicCollectors link in your profile box doesn't work just to let you know.



Thanks for the article though :) was looking forward to seeing this project. I'd heard that the fellow working on this originally was snapped up to work on Sonic Generations is that not true then?

Yeah, I've had to take the site down. I've asked Adam to fix it up.
