About Sonic Adventure in brief
Sonic Adventure is a 1998 platform game for Sega’s Dreamcast. It is the first main Sonic the Hedgehog game to feature 3D gameplay. Players control one of six anthropomorphic protagonists as they seek the seven magical Chaos Emeralds and the evil entity Chaos. The game received critical acclaim and, with 2.5 million copies sold by August 2006, became the Dreamcast’s bestseller. It was ported to the GameCube and Windows in 2003 as Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut, featuring updated graphics and more challenges. A sequel, Sonic Adventure 2, was released in 2001. It has been ranked as one of the best Sonic games by many journalists. The video game was developed by Sonic Team and released in Japan in December 1998, and worldwide in September 1999. In 2010, a high-definition version was released digitally for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2010, and for Windows in 2011. In the U.S., the game was released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2011, and the Xbox One and PlayStation 2 in 2012. The GameCube version of the game has been released in North America and Europe in 2012, and in Australia and South Africa in 2013, but not in the UK or Australia. The PlayStation 3 version has not yet been released for North America or South Africa. It will be released in the United States and Australia in the summer of 2015, and will be available in Europe and South America in the spring of 2016. The Xbox 360 version will also be released later in the year, and it will be the first time the game will have been available in North Africa and the Middle East at the same time as the North American version.
The North American release will be on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as the Nintendo 3DS and the PlayStation Portable. The PC version will not be released until the fall of 2016, when it is expected to be released on the Wii U and the PS3. The Wii U version is scheduled for release in the Spring of 2017, with an estimated release date of September 17, 2017, and a release date for the PC version in the Fall of 2017. The Sega Saturn version of Sonic Adventure was released on December 28, 1997. It features a ring-based health system and minigames like racing and sandboarding. Outside the main game, players can play minigame like racing, interact with Chao, a virtual pet, and interact with other characters in the game. In several levels, the player engages in hidden shields, elemental shields, and elemental invincibility. Six player characters are unlocked as the game progresses, each with their own story and attributes. The player character is guided and instructed by the voice of Tikal the Echidna. Through exploration, players discover entrances to levels called Action Stages, some of which must be opened using keys hidden in the Adventure Field. Once the player accesses an Action Stage, they are tasked with a specific objective, which is different for each character. Some minig games can only be accessed with particular characters.
