    No, it's the Japanese version of Sonic Chronicles with a different boxart. Remember, this is made by Bioware, an American company. So they didn't really have that much time before to release this in Japan.

    It's nice to see Japan forced to wait months for a game.

    Lol, this time, Japan waits for a US game.
    Funny how the game IMO wasn't good compared to the Sonic games that were originally made in Japan

    How to play "Sonic Chronicles" on your DSTT/AK2/(R4)

    0. Download Child's Play Patch here. (Credit to Rudolph)

    1. Drag & drop your ROM file directly onto the Patch.exe file. (or execute the Patch.exe directly in the folder placing your ROM.)

    That's all! [​IMG]

    NOTE:
    [] If you use R4 you have to use YSMENU. You can't use the original R4 loader.
    [] If you use AK2/AK2i, you may need to start the game with pushing "A" button a little long in order to turn DMA mode off.
    [] If you suspect this patch, please try it on some virtual PC like VMware.
    [] You can use the Rudolph presented "NDS Backup Tool" for dumping ROM data from your game cartridge.

    Spite this, there is a sequel to Sonic Chronicles being made... Sad for some people, but it may raise some eyebrows, Bioware are sure to improve on the original one with this sequel...

    Japan always gets the best box art...

    i really wouldn't want a sequel, it will probably be as crap as the first.

    Wow, how faithful are you? [​IMG]

    Listen up you idiot! Bioware were RUSHED (Like any other Sonic game to be release during an important launch date) and that's the reason why the game had flaws which could of had been corrected if they had been given more time. SEGA believes that releasing an iconic game on the launch date is more vital then giving the game time and effort to be finally polished. What Bioware should do is give it more time and don't tell SEGA 'ANY' possibility about the sequel coming out, until its finally ready and polished!

    The only way that would work is if Bioware was developing its own IP.

    i think what i can apparently see as good is so far the boxart which i really like esp the inclined cam and mixed shining colors.. nicely done

    Japan has best box-art as always...

    Anyhow, I don't dislike this game, but it could've been better.

    I wonder why the name of BIOWARE in nowhere to be seen in this boxart... [​IMG]

    But the first one had some serious flaw in the lvl-up, exp system and in the damages there were very random... (From 1 to 100 with the same character and in the same enemy [​IMG] )

    I'd guess that Bioware would have done it right the first time, hadn't it been for Sega. They're cursed with shmuckness.

    You'd think if they were given a year they'd localize it some - I haven't really taken a look at this yet but I hope they've done some little aesthetic tweaks to make this game a little more enjoyable for the Japanese audience, like clean up the character battle model-textures and replacing X's and check-marks with X's and O's.


    knowing my luck though it's probably just a translation and text formatting :/


    EDIT: Some fonts were edited to look more bubbly, character dialogue text is now larger and antialiased. Other than that the game is the exact same. Even the comic-book-style cutscenes haven't been flipped or anything (although I could swear they just SLAPPED Amy into the first cutscene all of a sudden)

    You seem like a nice boy. So you should realise that there hasn't been a truly great Sonic game since the MegaDrive. Don't insult people. It's not nice.
