Photos - Sonic 3 & Knuckles

Another large set of terrific photos from Sega's great double-album, Sonic 3 & Knuckles.  This has long been my favorite Sonic of the 16-bit era, and the fantastic variety of landscapes and visual styles are a key reason.  This is a game where Yuji Naka and his team pushed Sonic to the absolute limits.

So...when is Sega going to be bothered to release Sonic & Knuckles on the Virtual Console?  What exactly are they waiting for?  Sonic 3 has been available for some time, yet part two remains in limbo, and for no good reason.  Very strange.  I'll just continue to play for free on my Gens emulator.

By the way, did you know Michael Jackson composed the music for Sonic 3?  This revelation finally emerged in 2009, after the death of the King of Pop.  True story.
