GraphicsIcon.png This game has unused graphics.

The sequel to the Japan-exclusive Sonic Drift with more courses, more characters, and a much better AI. Unfortunately, much like its predecessor, the game suffers from a short horizon which is largely due to the Game Gear's small screen size.

To do:
There's more unused stuff.

Unused Graphics

Artwork Use Description
Sonic Drift 2 leftover Amy sprites.png Gameplay These sprites are leftover from Sonic Drift. The palette is incorrect, as Amy's palette was redone for this game. These sprites had the wrong number of spikes, and Drift 2 fixed this issue.
Sonic Drift 2 unused Not-so-happy-knuckles.png Menu An unused Knuckles sprite likely intended to be used for the main menu screen. It is unknown what it would have been used for, considering the menu Knuckles is always happy.
Sonic Drift 2 unused sleepy Tails.png Menu An unused Tails sprite likely intended to be used for the main menu screen. Tails never closes his eyes completely, so this sprite goes unused.
