File:Sonic2 MD US SonicJam manual.pdf Find the Chaos Emeralds!

Miles "Tails" Prower, the fox, can't sit still when Sonic's around. Ever since Miles was a baby fox, he's dreamed of being like Sonic. He loves to run after Sonic, waving his two tails behind him, trying to keep up with his hero!

Mostly, Sonic lets him trail along. But sometimes, just to show off, Sonic explodes in a burst of super speed and leaves him behind. But Miles doesn't give up. He whirls his tails like a helicopter rotor and takes off flying until he catches up!

All the animals call Miles by his nickname, "Tails", because of his two special tails. And one day they saw an astonishing feat...

They were all together in the forest, watching Sonic perform. Sonic would run, spin and jump in his Super Spin Attack. Then "Tails" would whirl like a turbo engine and blast off in his Super Dash Attack. What a showoff!

Suddenly, "Tails" just couldn't help himself. He took a running start, curled up his tails, and - whoosh - he was spinning like Sonic!

But now something frightening is happening. Sonic's friends are disappearing. In their place, nasty metal robots are popping up all over the island. The mad scientist Dr. Robotnik is at it again!

This time, Robotnik's planning a global disaster. He needs workers to create a doomsday machine that can take over the world. So he's trapping all the animals, turning them into robots, and forcing them to build his ultimate weapon, the Death Egg!

Robotnik now rules the factories, refineries and cities! He's grabbed control of everything - except the 7 Chaos Emeralds. These magnificent gems are believed to hold exceptional powers. With them, Robotnik could have the entireworld in his grasp. And he'd never let go!

The Chaos Emeralds are buried somewhere on the island. Only one tough dude with spiky hair has the speed to find them first!

Help Sonic stop the devious scheme of the demented scientist! Spin like a speedball through space. Grab Power Sneakers and loop 'til you're dizzy. Twirl over twisting speedways and rocket through tunnels. Balance and blast across a bubbling ocean of oil!

Find the Emeralds, free the animals, and squash Robotnik forever!

In the midst of his ever so carefree adventures, Sonic suddenly came across one island.
It was a small island, with pleasant green meadows spread throughout it.
"Alright, I'm gonna take a short break."

Sonic's beloved plane Tornado slipped into the island's silhouette while drawing white arcs with the exhaust smoke--then, as if it were following him, a suspicious shiny figure faded into the opposite side of the island.

The Legend of the Illusionary West Side Island

In the remote past, the people of this island developed civilizations by using the mysterious stones, and had lived highly prosperous lives.
However, that prosperity had been brought to nothing in a single night by people who tried using the stones in unintended ways, and the mysterious stones are said to have ended up being sealed somewhere in the island by the gods.

One day, only a few days since landing on the island, Sonic noticed that someone is following him from behind.
When he turned around, he was met with a small fox. When the fox was noticed by Sonic, he quickly hid in the shadow of a palm tree. However, when Sonic started running, the fox followed him as hard as he could.
"Oh well, I'll let him do what he wants." Sonic decided, not paying much mind to him.

"Miles Prower" is a small fox. Miles has two tails. That is why the animals of the island call him "Tails.
He was often bullied because of his two tails. But after seeing Sonic, who came to this island, Miles changed. He made up his mind.
"I want to become cool, too!" he said. And after that, Miles began following Sonic around throughout the day.

One early afternoon, Miles found a beautiful airplane on the beach. Miles, who loves machines and vehicles, approached the side of the plane short of breaking into a run.
The wings were depicted with a stylish body and sharp lines. Fascinated by this aircraft, Miles walked to the other side and stopped, startled. Sonic was taking a nap under the wing on the other side.
Then, when Miles gently changed his direction and returned to the other side of the aircraft...

A flash sparkled at the forest.
Followed by a large explosion and rising fire pillars. Pebbles and tree splinters are raining down.
Almost getting blown away, Miles, who tumbled under the airplane, fluttered his eyes, unable to digest the situation. Forests burning in red and robots digging up the ground as if they are looking for something were reflected in his eyes.

Miles stared at the non-stop explosions and flames covering the island, dumbfounded. He felt someone's presence and looked to the side. Sonic was there, scowling at the blazing forest.

"That blasted Eggman...!" As soon as he muttered that, Sonic kicked up the sand and headed into the woods.
Something has happened. Something unthinkable.
Seized with that premonition, Miles unconsciously went running after Sonic...

"Daaaaahahahaha!!"
A coarse, loud laughter that Sonic grew used to hearing was echoing in the forest. It was him. Doctor Eggman.

I finally found it. The island where the Chaos Emeralds sleep--the illusionary West Side! Ahh, I'm glad I pursued Sonic. Now I should be able to even complete my ultimate weapon--the Death Egg. I'm waiting for you, Sonic! And this time, this time, I will beat you, and collect the Chaos Emeralds! Then, I will become the world's conqueror!! Daaahahaha!!

The actors are set. The adventure and excitement will now start once again!

Original Japanese Text

ソニックはいつもの気ままな冒険の途中に偶然、その島を発見した。
気持ちのいい緑の草原が広がる小さな島だった。
「よし、しばらく休んでいこう。」

ソニックの愛機トルネード、排気煙で白い弧を描きながら島影に滑り込んだ―――そして、それを追いかけるかように怪しい光る物体が島の反対側に消えていった。

幻の島〝ウェストサイドアイランド〟の伝説。
遠い昔、その島の人々は不思議な石を使って文明を発展させ、思うがままの繁栄を手にしていた。
だがその繁栄も、石の誤った使い方を試みた人々によって、一夜にしてすべてが無に帰し、不思議な石は神々によって島のどこかに封印されてしまったという。

島に着陸してから数日たったある日、ソニックは自分の後ろを誰かがついてくるのに気がついた。
振り向くと、それは小さなキツネだった。キツネはソニックに気づかれるとあわててヤシの木の影に隠れた。だが、ソニックが走り出すとキツネは一生懸命後を追ってくる。
「まあ、勝手にさせておこう。」別段気にもせず、ソニックはそう決めた。

“マイルス・パウワー”は小さなキツネ。
マイルスにはシッポが2本ある。だから、島の動物たちは彼を〝テイルス〟と呼んでいる。
2本のシッポのせいでイジメられることもよくあった。でも、この島へやって来たソニックを見てからマイルスは変わった。決心したのだ。
「ボクも、かっこよくなりたい!」と。
それからだ、マイルスが一日中ソニックの後を追いかけて回すようになったのは。

ある昼下がり。マイルスは浜辺で美しい飛行機を見つけた。機械や乗物が大好きなマイルスは、駆け出すようにそばに近づいていった。
スマートなボディとシャープなラインを描く翼。その機体に見とれながら、反対側まで歩いてきたマイルスはドキリとしたように足の動きを止めた。反対側の翼の下でソニックが昼寝をしていたのだ。
そして、マイルスがそっと向きを変え、再びの機体の向こう側へ戻ったとき……。

森の方で閃光がきらめいた。
それに続く大爆発と立ち昇る火柱。降り注ぐ小石と木の破片。
吹き飛ばされそうになり、飛行機の下に転がり込んだマイルスは状況がのみこめず目をしばたたせた。その目のなかに、赤く燃える森と何かを探すように地面を掘り起こすロボットたちが映り込んだ。

止むことなく続く爆発と島を覆っていく炎。それを茫然と見つめていたマイルスは、誰かの気配を感じて横を向いた。そこには、燃え上がる森をにらみつけるソニックがいた。

「エッグマンめ……!」そのつぶやきと同時にソニックは砂を蹴り上げ、森に向かっていった。
何かが始まったんだ。とんでもないスゴイことが。
そんな予感にとらわれなかがら、マイルスは無意識のうちにソニックの後ろ姿を追って走り出していた……。

「ダーーーーッハッハッハッハッ!!」
森の中では、聴き馴れた下品な高笑いがこだましていた。ヤツだ。ドクター・エッグマンだ。

「ついに発見したぞ。カオスエメラルドが眠る島・幻のウェストサイド!あー、ソニックを追っかけてきてよかったわい。これでワシの究極兵器・デスエッグも完成するはずぢゃ。待っているのだぞソニック!今度こそ、今度こそ、おまえをやっつけてカオスエメラルドをそろえてみせる!そして、このドクター・エッグマンが世界の征服者となるのだぁ!! ダーーーッハッハッハ!!」

さあ、役者はそろった。冒険と感動の幕が、いま再び切って落とされるのだ!
