It's a race between two foes.
A couple of months back we reviewed the rather impressive Sonic Rivals for the PSP. Developed for Sega by Backbone Entertainment the title was quite entertaining and took a new spin on the little blue mascot. Sure, it had it's flaws, but that's what sequels are for now aren't they!

So here we are with the sequel titled Sonic Rivals 2. This sequel has several new features to enhance the player’s experience. A revamped rival “jostling” gameplay system allows for closer head-to-head competition, whilst rivalry is further improved with upgraded power-ups and range weapons allowing players to attack or defend themselves regardless of their position. A brand new Battle mode allows two players to jump into six different multiplayer challenges by sharing just one disc using the PSP system’s Wi-Fi function.

Miles “Tails” Prower and other new characters have been added to the mix of characters available to play as, whilst the new single player Free Play mode will allow players to enjoy each level at their own pace. Each character in the game will also have their own unique signature moves that fit their varied personalities.

Card trading and collection in Sonic Rivals 2 has been greatly increased and will now include 150 collectable cards. This will enable players to customise character’s track suits, as well as unlocking new PSP backgrounds and Cup Circuits.

There's still a lot more we don't know about this sequel, but if they can improve on the original game then we'll be onto a good thing - and one of the few good Sonic franchises still available on the market. Expect this game to be released in time for Christmas 2007 with November 29 currently being targeted.
