The 2013 release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is an enhanced downloadable remake of the 1992 Sega Mega Drive game Sonic the Hedgehog 2. It was published by Sega for iOS and Android devices on 12 December 2013.

This version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was being developed by Sonic Retro Tech Members The Taxman and Stealth, using a proprietary game engine named the "Retro Engine" (first used in the 2011 version of Sonic the Hedgehog CD). It was offered as a free upgrade to iOS users who bought the original iOS emulation of Sonic 2. This also marks the first time that Sonic 2 was brought to Android devices.

As this was a remake instead of an emulated port, new features were added. The new features were similar to the previous 16-bit game remasters. The Taxman confirmed that no features from Sonic 2 would be excluded.[6]

New features included a remastered soundtrack, the game running at 60fps during normal and Special Stages,[7] a remade version of the lost beta level Hidden Palace Zone, and an eighth Special Stage.
