    This is perhaps the greatest thing ever

    • I know, right? I’m pumped for Episode Metal. More so than Episode 2, to be honest. I’m hoping it kicks off at Stardust Speedway and ends at Sylvania Castle, connecting CD and 4.

      There making up for the crappy skin of Metal Sonic they gave us in Sonic Adventure DX. Yea I will love to see how they make the connection between the number series and CD. Its great that CD has been getting the attention it deserves.

    So wait, does this mean that it Episode 2 revamps up Episode 1 a bit also to fit better with the improved Episode 2?
    Also does it join directly with Episode 1 in a way that we don’t have to load the games up separately?
