Sonic the Hedgehog 2, also called Sonic 2, is the second video game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog. It was made by Sonic Team and published by Sega for the Sega Mega Drive in 1992. Unlike the first game, it has a half-pipe special stage and has seven chaos emeralds (see "chaos emerald") instead of six. It also introduces Miles "Tails" Prower.
Development of the game began in November 1991. The game was developed by both Japanese and American staff at Sega Technical Institute.
After the release of the original Sonic the Hedgehog, creator Yuji Naka quit Sega due to disagreements over corporate policy. Mark Cerny, who had recently created Sega Technical Institute (STI) inCalifornia, met with Naka in Japan. He offered Naka a higher salary and more creative freedom if he joined STI. Naka agreed. Hirokazu Yasuhara, the lead level designer of Sonic the Hedgehog, also decided to join STI.
