Fans are working on a brand new remake for Sonic The Hedgehog 2, first screenshots & trailer

Sonic fans, get ready for a treat. Team S2HD has released the first screenshots and trailer for its upcoming remake of Sonic The Hedgehog 2. This is a fan remake that will be distributed for free, and aims to overhaul the visuals of the original game for a new generation of gamers.

According to the team, Sonic 2 HD is a non-profit endeavour created by fans, for fans, with no financial gain whatsoever and no team member associated with Sonic 2 HD has received, or will receive compensation of any form for work contributed.

Sonic 2 HD feels pretty amazing in high-definition. Team S2HD has re-drawn and re-animated a lot of sprites in order to make this game look something more than just the original being rendered in higher resolutions. The end result is a bit too clean, something that may put off some old-school fans of Sonic 2.

A demo for Sonic 2 HD will be released on September 30th, so we’ll be sure to inform you the moment it is available. Until then, enjoy the following screenshots and trailer!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
