Sonic Drift is the first instance of Sonic using his most counterintuitive method of speed - a car. It inexplicably never released outside of Japan (despite being planned to) before being included in Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut nearly a decade later (and subsequently in many future compilations as well), though its sequel did manage to see a worldwide release.
