This week’s new game release on the Xbox Live Arcade is a blast from Sega’s past, Sonic & Knuckles, priced at an oh so affordable 400 Microsoft points ($5). Here’s the full info from Microsoft:
The blue hedgehog and the red echidna were sworn adversaries in Sonic 3, but in the platform adventure Sonic & Knuckles™, Knuckles realizes that he’s been just a pawn in the schemes of Dr. Eggman (aka Dr. Robotnik). Knuckles, the former adversary, now supports Sonic to chase the common enemy, and each must use their strengths to acquire the priceless Master Emerald and save Angel Island.
