Sonic Rumble is a fighting/action game, very similar to Sonic the Fighters. It features 20 characters and a mini story. It was released June 3rd, 2011.


Eggman, under the name of Rumble, is holding a fighting tournament and invites 16 lucky competitors to participate in the competition.

Characters fight each other in a specific order, characters are added once unlocked:

  • Tails
  • Shadow
  • Knuckles
  • Jet
  • Fang
  • Rouge
  • Blaze
  • Mighty
  • Ray
  • Omega
  • Amy
  • Silver
  • Vector
  • Espio
  • Bolt
  • Sonic

After those 16 are beat, you fight Rumble. When he is beat, Metal Sonic reveals he brainwashed Eggman into thinking he was a wrestler. He then battles you. Once he is defeated, he explodes, and Eggman returns to normal.

Reception and Sequel

The game received relatively high ratings, though it was heavily criticized for having so many characters. Most fans got it for nostalgic purposes, as Fang, Mighty, and Ray were all brought back, and for being a sequel to a popular arcade game.

In August of 2011, it was announced that the game would receive a sequel, slated for release in October. The game, entitled Sonic Rumble II, is currently in production. null
