Sonic the Hedgehog 3

This day in gaming: 23 Years Ago
(Japanese: ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグ3 スリー is a platform video game developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega. The third main game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, it was released for the Sega Genesis worldwide in February 1994, and in Japan three months later.
Sonic 3 was a critical and commercial success, with critics seeing it as an improvement over previous installments. It sold 1.02 million copies in the United States; though this makes it one of the best-selling Genesis games, its predecessors, bundled with the Genesis in some regions, had sold a combined 21 million.
Sonic 3 begins shortly after the events of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Dr. Robotnik’s space station, the Death Egg, crash-lands on a mystical floating landmass called Angel Island after Sonic and Tails defeat him at the end of Sonic 2.
Sonic 3 is a 2D side-scrolling platformer. At the game’s start, players can choose to select Sonic, Tails, or both. In the latter choice, players control Sonic while Tails runs along beside him; a second player can join in at any time and control Tails separately.
