So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Sonic Advance is, as you may have guessed, the first game in the Sonic Advance series.

Unused Music


An alternate invincibility tune, later used in Sonic Advance 2 and Sonic Advance 3.

Revisional Differences

The original releases in all regions have a rather severe bug: after deleting the save file, rings collected in the main game will no longer transfer to the Tiny Chao Garden. This was fixed in v1.1, only released in Japan. It was also fixed in the double pack release Combo Pack: Sonic Advance + Sonic Pinball Party.

The original US and Japanese versions have English and Japanese language selection. The double pack re-releases added Spanish, French, and German from the European version.
