Yes, just as we all feared, the mad scientist is back and more ruthless than ever before. In the past, Sonic and friends have managed to ruin all his evil plans, but are those days over?! A new battle has begun, and this time Dr. Robotnik (“Eggman” to Sonic and his pals) has long last figured out how to harness the massive ancient powers of the 7 Chaos Emeralds to destroy the world!


This mysterious liquefied life-form that has been trapped in the Master Emerald was released by Dr. Robotnik to do his evil bidding. Chaos grows even bigger and more powerful with each emerald that Dr. Robotnik adds to him. What will happen to the world if Dr. Robotnik manages to add all seven Chaos Emeralds…?
