SEGA has officially announced the rumored release of Sonic Adventure 2, for both XBLA and PSN over the course of Comic-Con weekend. There’s no firm date or price given, but I’d imagine the price will be comparable to the releases of other Dreamcast titles previously seen on both platforms.
This is definitely great news for Sonic fans, and for those that never had a chance to experience the game on it’s original platform. Hopefully we’ll see some news about this impending release soon, along with a glimpse of what it will look like on current platforms.
Until then, feel free to peruse the official press release found below.
