An early prototype of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Mega Drive, also known as the "Nick Arcade" prototype.
- A similar build was used at SCES 1992 (which was opened to the public near the end of May). The booth was not allowed to be photographed or filmed, but was reported to share the same properties as this prototype. However, the cart used at the exhibition is not the same as this one.
- A similar prototype was also featured on the Nickelodeon show "Nick Arcade", which began filming its second season in June 1992 and began airing in September of that year.
- Contains unreferenced leftover data of Sonic the Hedgehog at 0xE0180, immediately followed by ToeJam & Earl REV00 at 0xE1670 for the remainder of the ROM. Suggests that the EPROMs originally carried the game before being written over.
- It was released by drx on Nov 7, 2006.
