Sonic 2020 tells the story of why chaos emeralds are no longer used in recent Sonic games. The game tells the that events took place after Sonic Unleashed before Sonic Lost World that prevent the characters from using chaos emeralds.
This first episode, White Jungle, focuses on Sonic. On the other hand, the second episode, Shadow of Water, focuses on Shadows. Do note, however, that White Jungle is the third chronological episode, whereas Shadow of Water is the fourth chronological episode.
