ProtoIcon.png This game has a prototype article

After the success of Mario Party, Sonic followed in the plumber's footsteps in the party genre with Sonic Shuffle, which was unsuccessful thanks to the cheatsy AI and excessive load times (not as bad as that Sonic game from 2006, mind you, but still pretty annoying).

Prototype Info

Unused Graphics


SonicShuffle MG049 face.png

The Bomb Relay minigame has a crudely drawn white cloud with a face, likely meant as an emote of sorts when the bomb blows up.

Unused Models


SonicShuffle MG102 NightsDart.png

The Sonic Darts minigame has an unused dart pertaining to the character NiGHTS, who despite having a cameo appearance when the game is played on Christmas Eve, is not playable. While all other characters have their faces on the darts, NiGHTS didn't get as far as only their name.

Debug Features

Present in the SUBPROG directory are files for debug tools, such as a model viewer and a level viewer which includes a small debug system. To access these features, replace TITLE.BIN with any of the below files:

To do:
These all need looking into.

Model Viewer (MDLVIEW.BIN)

It's...a model viewer. Duh.

Level Viewer (TEST_0.BIN)

SonicShuffle TEST0.BIN.png

Lets you view the game's maps. This uses the Gindows debugging system seen in the Rez prototype and Scud Racer early SDK sample.

Character Viewer (HPVIEW.BIN)

SonicShuffle HPVIEW.BIN.png

Lets you view character models, although only Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Illumina, Lumina, and Void can be selected. Note that this file is referred to as "High Poly Viewer" within 1ST_READ.BIN.

Debug Menu Text

Text from the Debug Menu from the European Debug Version can still be found in TITLE.BIN, before the text used for VMU access. Whether it can still be accessed is unknown. If running the European Debug Version, holding the Y button while the game loads the SEGA logo will launch this menu.
