ESRB: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 rated E for Xbox 360


While not quite as exciting as the news that Lara's latest adventure is coming to the Xbox 360 (in some capacity), the ESRB also let another cat out of its poorly guarded bag today. Well, it's more like a pair of cats. Actually, it's a hedgehog and a two-tailed fox but they're both coming out of that bag with the revelation that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is destined for not only the Wii's Virtual Console service -- no big surprise there -- but the Xbox 360 as well. We're speculating that the title's co-op gameplay and split-screen races were enough to convince the fat cats at Microsoft that Sonic 2 deserved a plot inside Xbox Live Arcade's walled garden.

[Update 6/10/07: Good thing we snagged that screen grab of the ESRB's listing because, whaddya know, the Xbox 360 is no longer listed as an upcoming platform. Thanks for the note, SSUK!]
