SegaSonic Bros. is a Sonic the Hedgehog arcade puzzle game designed by Fukio Mitsuji, the creator of Puzzle Bobble.

SegaSonic Bros. was developed for unknown arcade hardware and was originally set for release in 1992. However, the game failed its location test in Japan and subsequently did not see a nationwide release. Its existence wasn't known about for the best part of 25 years, save for a couple of overlooked posts on Twitter from 2014[1] and a few posts by Custom Robo developer Kohji Kenjoh on SEGA's social media website it-tells from late 2013.[2] It only came to public attention in early 2016 when a working board was found by arcade board collector ShouTime.[3]

It is speculated to be one of two apparently unsatisfactory arcade Sonic games to be worked on before the 1993 release of SegaSonic the Hedgehog.[4]

Release

ShouTime has stated that he plans to release the ROM for the board for emulation purposes in MAME. While the board was dumped its release was halted due to members of the collection scene threatening to blacklist ShouTime from future rare game sales. This was likely an attempt to keep rarer games valuable as they lose their value after being publically released.
