Central City

From Sonic Retro

Central City in Sonic Battle.
This article deals with the city as a storyline location. For more on the in-game stages, see Central City (Shadow the Hedgehog), Central City (Sonic Battle) and Central City (Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood).

Central City is the capital city of the United Federation in Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Battle, Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.

Game appearances

Sonic Adventure 2

The city in Sonic Adventure 2 is unnamed, but referred to as "the capital city" in the first Hero cutscene. In Shadow the Hedgehog, in Central City, G.U.N. soldiers say that they've cornered the Black Arms in the capital, so it's arguable that Central City is the same city seen in Sonic Adventure 2.

It has five Action Stages: City Escape, Radical Highway, Mission Street, Route 280 and Route 101.

Central City appears as a stage in Shadow the Hedgehog. The first city is Westopolis, but if Shadow helps Dr. Eggman light five lanterns in Cryptic Castle, Shadow goes to Central City, which appears as Westopolis with a slight makeover. In it, GUN tries to fight off the invading Black Arms. The Hero Mission is to help Knuckles the Echidna capture twenty bombs, and the Dark Mission is to help Black Doom detonate five giant bombs. It is destroyed by the Eclipse Cannon after clearing the Dark Mission of The ARK. Whether Central City is destroyed or not is up to the player. In Expert Mode, Espio the Chameleon challenges Shadow to destroy the ruins of Central City, but one of the bombs has been moved to a construction site.

Sonic the Hedgehog (IDW comics)

Central City has also appeared as a location in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series by IDW Publishing, drawing most of its inspirations from Sonic Battle and even featuring Tails' Lab from Emerald Town. In issue #21, the city was ravaged by the Metal Virus as Tails was there working on a cure in his lab, with many of the city's citizens becoming Zombots. Tangle and Whisper manage to evacuate a number of survivors from the city, while Tails was forced to escape in the Cyclone after Zombots broke into his lab and destroy his work on the cure.
