Are You Up 2 It?

Sonic 2 sprites come to S3AIR! This mod accurately captures Sonic and Tails' look in the Genesis original. Not only was Sonic brought in with entirely new sprites to replace Sonic 3 exclusives, but Tails was also edited with entirely custom sprites by me and the ones from the mobile ports of Sonic 1, 2, and CD, and Knuckles was given a palette based on Knuckles in Sonic 2. There is also an option for a Sonic 3 Prototype palette. Full Super Sonic sprite consistency is an option for both, with sprites by Smoke and I. Special thanks to mrgrassman14 for his Super Sonic idle fix.

    I think there needs to be some kind of option that lets you choose between the grey palette from Sonic 2 and Sonic 3.

    I really like the Sonic 2 Sprites, and seeing them made for S3 AIR makes me happy. Great Mod!

    Are you planning to have a version that keeps the monitor icons identical to Sonic 3, except for the Sonic & Tails monitors?

    Wait, why isn't the Sonic 2 goal post showing up?

    I keep getting the Sonic 3 variants in-game.

    This is amazing! I love The Sonic 3-prototype styled-sprites and I'm glad to see this! Looks so much better to me than the final S3K sprites! Thank you so much!

    I have a suggestion to make: What if you replace the Chaos Emeralds on the data select and special stage results screen with the Sonic 2 ones? You don't have to, but it would be a nice option, maybe as a separate download.

    P.S S3C palette when
