The latest Virtual Console game to show up on the ESRB's ratings search page is an obvious one: Sonic & Knuckles.
With Sonics 1
already available, it was only a matter of time before The Rest of Sonic 3
showed up. The ESRB rating should
mean that the game will pop up on the VC soon, though it's no guarantee.
How will Sonic & Knuckles'
feature work on the Wii? The original cartridge featured a pass-through that allowed other Sonic
games to be connected, unlocking the ability to play through those games as Knuckles. Previous ports
of Sonic & Knuckles
have been packaged with the other games, with the "lock-on" extras selectable from a menu. Will Sonic & Knuckles
on the Virtual Console check for Sonic 2
Will you be able to play Blue Sphere?
Or will it just be the main Sonic & Knuckles
game? We're curious, but we aren't getting our hopes up. Just like every other time a Sonic
game comes out!
