Sega announces plans for the platform action of Sonic Heroes to PCs:
SEGA TO BRING SONIC HEROES TO PC

SAN FRANCISCO (August 18, 2004) - SEGA® of America today announced that it will publish a PC version of Sonic HeroesTM, the popular action platformer released earlier this year on Microsoft XboxTM, Sony PlayStation®2, and Nintendo GameCubeTM.

Sonic Heroes challenges gamers to control three characters simultaneously; each offering the unique individual ability of speed, power, or flight. Multiple teams follow their own unique story paths across 14 massive stages. Their combined objective: to thwart the plans of Sonic's arch nemesis, the nefarious Dr. Eggman.

Sonic Heroes is designed to appeal to players of all ages and skill levels as they experiment with four unique teams comprised of classic Sonic friends and foes for a total of 12 playable characters. Sonic Heroes also includes seven multi-player mini-games to ensure maximum replay value.

Since its multi-platform release in January, 2004, Sonic Heroes has sold more than 1.83-million copies worldwide. Sonic The Hedgehog® has spanned several generations of videogame systems to appear in over 30 games that have sold more than 35 million units of software. Consistently a top-selling franchise, Sonic The Hedgehog continues to be a popular icon worldwide in 2004 and one of the most recognized and celebrated video game characters of all time.

Sonic Heroes is rated "E" for Everyone and is expected to ship in November, 2004. For screenshots and artwork visit the SEGA FTP site at: http://segapr.segaamerica.com/.

Yea.. Sega doesn't do a good job with their ports. Sonic Adventure DX for pc was horrid.. ugly console port filled with some really bad textures and a hideous camera system.

Actually that was 100% acurate to the Dreamcast original!

Trouble is Sonic Heroes also has the same horrible camera problems. I rented it for my 5 year old but she couldn't get her head around being 3 characters at once (she just wanted to be the pink one). I played it a little bit myself also but it was instantly forgetable and not much fun.
