I remember hearing this song when I got to this stage and saying to myself "I heard this before". Then I played sonic cd and it ended up being the Japanese intro song. I found out later that sonic cd was actually suppose to be sonic 2, but sega changed their mind and made the one for genesis instead. Thats why the gamegear sonic 2 and sonic cd have the same song.
That is very intriguing on what happened behind the scenes at Sega. :nod: To be honest, I have not played Game Gear/Master System Sonic 2 in a LONG time and after finally hearing this tune after listening to the Japanese Sonic CD soundtrack for years and I was quite surprised when it hit me how similar this and "Toot, Toot Sonic Warrior" are. A nice surprise, to say the least. :) To think I had completely forgotten.
At any rate, great to see that you really enjoyed this song and thank you very much for another awesome review! ^_^
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
