West Side Island

From Sonic Retro

Jump to: navigation, search
West Side Island is presumably that which is pictured on the Sonic 2 title screen.
Hill Top Zone, one of West Side Island's varied areas.
Not to be confused with Sonic the Hedgehog - Westside Island, a hack of Sonic 1.

West Side Island, known as the Island of Illusion, is the setting for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-bit), as told by the Japanese manual. Miles Prower lived there before his first meeting with Sonic, recieving the nickname "Tails" from the resident animals. The island's peaceful idyll is shattered when, before the start of the game, Doctor Robotnik comes to West Side searching for the Chaos Emeralds.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

The Mega Drive Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is the only game to have unequivocally visited West Side Island; Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-bit) (along with many other early Sonic games) instead took place on South Island. Areas visited by Sonic and Tails on West Side Island include:

And above the island:

And even higher above:

Sonic Drift 2

Several locations in Sonic Drift 2 are the same as those in Sonic 2 (namely Emerald Hill, Casino Night, Hill Top, and Mystic Cave), so obviously occur on West Side Island too. Many of the other racetracks are Zones with no pre-existing appearences, so it is possible that several of these (like Desert Road or Dark Valley) are also located on West Side.
