Sonic Rush Adventure for Nintendo DS Speeds into Stores

DS Gamers are invited on a high-seas adventure
on September 18

SEGA of America, Inc. today announced that Sonic
Rush Adventure, created exclusively for the Nintendo DS, has shipped to stores
across North America. Sonic Rush Adventure takes Sonic fans on an exciting
high-speed island-hopping adventure filled with action-packed gameplay and
all-new vehicles. Taking full advantage of the DS Touch Screen, players can
perform amazing tricks to avoid treacherous waters and dangerous enemies – all
while keeping an eye on both screens thanks to the much-loved DS dual screen

Sonic Rush Adventure delivers the fast-paced
adrenaline rush that DS players crave. Players clash with ruthless pirates along
irresistibly fun 2D tracks packed with rings and power-ups to gather along the
way. Gamers will set out from Windmill Village and scour islands to find raw
materials to allow Tails to create high-powered water vehicles. Exploring
further and further out to sea, battle epic 3D bosses and finally come
face-to-face with the ultimate pirate foe – Captain Whisker. Along the way, the
finely-tuned DS Touch Screen is used to control to fight battles at sea and rack
up points. Amazing aerial flips and turns are possible using the water-based
vehicles that are all-new to the Sonic world. Lush green lands, eerily haunted
pirate ships, and icy cold snowy mountains are just a few of the environments
players will explore while they discover enemy-filled islands that will offer
even the most experienced Sonic fan a challenge.

While in single-player action mode, players will
be able to snowboard down avalanches, springboard off giant mushrooms, swing
from vines, and hang glide across massive gaps. For players who like a little
bit of competition, Sonic Rush Adventure also features two battle modes
utilizing the DS wireless capabilities. Players can face-off in non-stop dual
screen races or see who is the fastest collector of hidden treasures spread all
over the map.

Sonic Rush Adventure for the DS is rated “E” for
everyone by the Entertainment Software Review Board and has an MSRP of $29.95.
