Until Sonic and friends along with Jet and his friends speed off into Mobius as the English game title appears with the Japanese title underneath it.

(English Version) The intro begins with the start off with an electric guitar riffing with a fast drum and bass beat rhythm beat showing the dark vastness of space. Until Sonic and friends along with Jet and his friends speed off into Mobius as the English game title appears (Without the Japanese title)

(Both Versions) The next scene begins with singing by Flow/Pendulum showing off Sonic's team in grass terrain looking into the sunset as goes into Jet's team looking over the city. Jet looks down at Sonic, smirks at him as they all jumped onto their boards and ride their way down the tall building to race Sonic and his friends like always whenever they cross paths. They race along with the city until eight unknown figures appear from space and brought laser beam rain onto them interrupting their race. Just as they were about to attack a new team with an Echidna, Raven and a Triceratops along with Blaze the Cat intervenes in the battle as he draws his blaster on them and opens fire on them making them retreat.

The Echidna looks at both Sonic, Jet and their friends as he offers his hand to them. Sonic takes the handshake aligning with him. The camera shot up into space with other planets nearby ending the intro with the song's end.

Plot

Sonic Riders Cover Jap Version

Sonic Riders: Unlimited Japanese Cover

Two months after the incident from MeteorTech with the Babylon Garden. Dr. Eggman arranges a meeting with the "Agent's of Justice" in hoping of getting revenge on Sonic and Jet's teams for fouling his Eggman land plans. He makes an arrangement that he would help find Jet in trade for their weapons but once he gave them their location. The Agents of Justice betrays him on giving the location of Jet's team and destroys his Headquarters seeing him as a criminal. They thought of leaving him for dead but survived the destruction. Since then The Agent's of Justice have begun their search on Mobius finding traces of the Babylon Garden and their activities.

Three years have passed since the last seen of Babylon Garden and its departure. Since the Sonic Team and Jet's Team made their separate ways three years ago Jet and his Rogues haven't been seen since then. Until attacks have begun rampaging on Mobius largest cities around the world including Monopole City, not even the G.U.N. could stop them. (First Race of the game) The Sonic Team must race over to them confront the enemy destroying the city nearby Megalo Station only to see a mysterious male Echidna figure highly advanced body armor suit similar to the Nocturnus Technology along with a female Raven and male Triceratops. They ask Sonic where was Jet and his friends but they didn't know their whereabouts till Jet and his friends came along to find them here.

Just as the Agent was about to attack them a black & green male Echidna, black female Cyborg Raven, and a dark green Triceratops and stopped them for the time being. He introduces himself and to his team called Cosmos as Acer the Echidna; the leader, Jenny the Cyborg Raven; The Mechanical and Engineer & Acer's love interest and lastly the muscle; Jexon "Genus" Triceratops and explains who was attacking the city. Jet joins in to see what was all of the commotions and explains why they were attacking. Acer explains that the agents of justice are a high organization that seeks to protect the galaxy and beyond and he was one of them. But he didn't know their methods of seeking justice were to destroy worlds or as they call it "cleansing" worlds and they find the Babylonian Race to be criminals that includes Jet, Wave, and Storm.

He asks for their help if they want to help save Mobius and the rest of the galaxy. Sonic and his friends accept the offer to save the world and the galaxy but Jet had no choice to join them due to them being targeted. Until at the last minute Dr. Eggman approaches them wanting to help them after everything he has caused and Acer accepts him.

After they have accepted his offer Acer's ship was a crew size, stealth fighter, and corvette class ship as it appears from its cloak and brings them inside. Of course, without them knowing Amy sneaks onto the ship following them and later on joins Sonic's team. He then introduces the rest of his crew on the ship from other Mobian established worlds. Lisa "Red" Fox; the ship's pilot, Sally Acorn; The Xtreme Gear Simulation trainer (tutorial help), Blaze the Cat; Side mission informer, Aurora the She-Wolf; Xtreme Gear vendor and specialist (Sells and buys Xtreme Gear), Empress Lila Viper; Power/Attack upgrade Vendor, Bison; Strength Vendor, Lika Griffin; Speed Vendor, Janica Battie; Flight Vendor and Metal Henson the Hedgehog as an informer for updates. (SEGA about news, updates and upcoming dlcs)

Acer says that agents of justice have landed on nine planets that establish nine bases each for the planet. Each planet has established their own bases on the planets First 1 Mobius; their homeworld, 2 Moirilia; the jungle planet ruled by Empress Lila,3 Vopleania; the fire, volcanic but livable planet inhabited by the Inferno species, 4 Crora-SQD; the militarized planet filled with Mobian's Planetary Defense that has been taken control, 5 Blion; the freezing tundra planet they'll use to send Mobians into the Ice Age, 6 Lourus; The beautiful farm grassland inhabited by peaceful Bison Cow species, 7 Lapiazlu; An Aquatic based world to be used for steam-powered machines, 8 Leurilia; A planet filled with a void of energy used to power Crora and Mobius and finally 9 Lashillon; The Air Based planet to change and use to make Toxic gases. The teams must work together to stop the agents of justice before they destroy the Mobian Galaxy until they reach the final base which is an Eggman Space Station taking them into space.

The team's race and fight their way through the Eggman Station until they've reached the main head of the station. (Semi-Final Race) Acer, Sonic, and Jet battle Eion to stop him from activating the "Deconstructor" and were able to defeat him but Eion didn't want it to end this way and sets the Station to self-destruct while trying to escape. (Final Race/Time Trial) The teams have five minutes to escape the station before it explodes until they caught up with Eion at a close call death. Acer saves Eion but he rather dies than be saved and chose to kill himself in the explosion as they watch the destruction of the station ending the reign of terror from the Agents of Justice.

A month later as everything went back to normal and back to the usual. The Sonic and Jet Team with Eggman got together for just one time at Jet's airship. Wave was even impressed by Tails and wanted to get together with him, Knuckles and Storm became best friends but still tested each others strength like knuckleheads as for Sonic and Jet; they're not exactly friends but a more friendly rivalry, have more respect for each other and to put their past behind and become friends. They wondered why did they do this, to get back at the Babylons for the thievery and crimes they've caused or was it something more to them. They even wondered what happened to Acer and his team is up to now until they arrived to ship to celebrate with Sonic's and Jet's team giving closure to the Babylons Saga.

Gameplay

Sonic Riders: Unlimited introduces new technology to power their Xtreme gear instead of using air or gravity and decided to use plasma. No more air but gravity is still in use. The plasma that can be reused without having to be changed but will need to recharge after each boost use by doing tricks, collecting power-ups or even purchasing upgrades. When upgrading the Xtreme gear you'll be able to pull off higher tricks, better boosting, increased acceleration and more.

The game will not have motion control since players had control issues in Sonic Free Riders and felt that it was a mistake to have it in the first place. So it was agreed to not have it in the fourth installment and in future titles.

The race tracks will have its traditional shortcuts and new ones. The returning tracks will be revamped but still having traditional tracks from the last installments and twists and turns on the tracks will return very much like Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. Each race always has the 12 racer position in a downward row and will have a 5-second running start before beginning the race.

The game includes customization for each character with Xtreme gear, upgrades and even wardrobe using the coins collected from the game and found parts throughout the story. SRU reintroduces the fast pace racing it once had in the first Sonic Riders game including the original drifting system and the tradition running start in ever start of the race. The boosting system has changed as well when using it it will have a charge time rate up to 30 seconds if completely depleted. You can purchase new boosts from the shop to upgrade different time rates. Power-ups can be added to your Xtreme Gear which each limited use of different attacks. No longer will you have to collect coins to level up while racing. The grinding system, for example, has returned not as an upgrade where you collect the number of rings. You can freely grind on the rails during the race. Gravity system also returns but also has limit use to when being used much like the boosts you can purchase upgrades from the shop.

The performance will be based on skills, talents and be balanced to the Xtreme gear. Tricks also have a huge role in the Sonic Riders series much like the last installments that help you replenish your boosts and are separated by timing and tricks. Similar to the last installments that include.

  • X - Earned when performed on perfect landing, fast timing and pulling off tricks. Earns 100 rings and an extra boost
  • SS/S+ - Earned when performing a great trick, great landing, and timing. Earns 50 rings
  • A - Earned when performing a good trick, good landing, and timing. Earns 30 rings
  • B - Earned when performing a decent trick, decent landing, and decent timing. Earns 20 rings.
  • C - Earned when failing a trick, bad landing and bad timing 10 or no rings will be earned. (Depending on how bad the trick was)
  • F - Earned when falling off the board or failing to perform a trick. No rings earned.
