Sega has announced that Sonic Unleashed for the Wii and the PlayStation 2 has officially shipped to stores across North America. Packed with stunning internationally-inspired locations and classic fast-paced gameplay, Sonic Unleashed promises an action-packed adventure for gamers of all ages featuring an extensive variety of missions and puzzle stages as well as unlockable content throughout the game for players to uncover.

Developed by Sonic Team in Japan, Sonic Unleashed is filled with classic 2D/3D gameplay and incredibly fast daytime action. Sonic has a series of new moves that make him even faster including the Sonic Drift (to corner quickly without losing speed), Ring Energy (faster speeds brings more ring energy), QuickStep (to move side to side without losing momentum), and Sonic Boost (uses Ring Energy to give Sonic a speed boost)-each move allows Sonic to reach unparalleled high speeds.

Bringing a new twist on the Sonic series, Sonic Unleashed also introduces the Werehog – Sonic’s dark alter ego who comes out when the moon shines bright. Within the nighttime levels, players can take advantage of the Werehog’s strong and flexible arms to fight tough enemies using his powerful punch and crazy combat moves. Gamers can also use the Werehog’s stretchy abilities to climb and swing reaching all new heights in the game.
