One of the long forgotten Sonic games, Waku Waku Sonic Patrol Car, has finally seen the light of day. It’s one of the most obscure games of the franchise, released only as a kiddy ride arcade in Japan back in December 1991, but it’s pretty interesting as the depiction of Sonic is more close to his original beta looks than to the final classic Sonic as we know it.
There have been several attemps to find the game, along with it’s sister game SegaSonic Cosmo Figther Galaxy Patrol, and dump it to preserve one of the oldest and more obscure Sonic games, but the quest is over now.
Mame has added Waku Waku Sonic Patrol Car to their list of compatibility at their latest release. Along that, a dump of the game is now avalaible around the net, thanks to Will Medved, Ryan Holtz and The Dumping Union.
The kiddy game, even if simple, contains lots of amusing details like lots of speech, making that the first time Sonic talked in a game, and a cute rendition of Green Hill Zone’s theme.
