Released exclusively for the {{Sega}} GameGear in 1994, ''Sonic Triple Trouble'' – or ''Sonic & Tails 2'' as it is known in Japan – is the sequel to ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogChaos Sonic Chaos]]'', and is widely considered one of the best ''[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]'' games to appear on the handheld, mostly due to it being the closest in feel to its 16-Bit brothers on the SegaGenesis. It features the debut of Fang the Sniper (or Nack the Weasel, as he was initially known in English versions).

In addition to the Pogo Spring and Rocket Shoes from ''Sonic Chaos'', ''Triple Trouble'' also gives both playable characters (Sonic and Tails) their own special modes of travel. In Robotnik Winter Zone, Sonic can shred on a snowboard (far more flexible than in [=IceCap=] Zone in ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic The Hedgehog 3]]''), and in Tidal Plant Zone, he can equip himself with scuba jets, which actually allow the blue hedgehog, well known for his {{super drowning skills}}, to ''[[SuperNotDrowningSkills swim]]'', though for a limited time. Meanwhile, Tails – in Tidal Plant Zone – can pilot the Sea Fox submarine, which comes equipped with a torpedo launcher and easy up-and-down movement while underwater. Tails would use the Sea Fox again in ''VideoGame/TailsAdventure''. Amusingly, on the American and European boxarts, Robotnik is depicted in a slightly modified version of his ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' incarnation (this also happened on the North American boxart for the Game Gear port of ''VideoGame/SonicSpinball'', even though the Genesis original used the classic Robotnik; one of many reasons no one mentions the Game Gear version).

Released exclusively for the {{Sega}} GameGear in 1994, ''Sonic Triple Trouble'' – or ''Sonic & Tails 2'' as it is known in Japan – is the sequel to ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogChaos Sonic Chaos]]'', and is widely considered one of the best ''[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]'' games to appear on the handheld, mostly due to it being the closest in feel to its 16-Bit brothers on the SegaGenesis. It features the debut of Fang The Sniper (or Nack The Weasel as he was called in the English versions). Somehow finally collecting the six Chaos Emeralds without catching the attention of Sonic, Dr. Robotnik was testing his Atomic Destroyer weapon, when suddenly an accident scattered them once more. Robotnik was able to find one of them, but of course, Sonic and Tails learned about what happened, and now they're off to find the other five before Robotnik can. Expecting this would happen, Robotnik once again deceives Knuckles The Echidna into believing that Sonic and Tails are trying to steal the Emeralds. Thus, Knuckles becomes a nuisance that tries to inhibit the duo's progress. As all of this is happening, Fang The Sniper, a [[MixAndMatchCritter half-wolf-half-weasel]] obsessed with riches, has successfully collected the other five, and has hidden them in five Special Stages each. He's clueless about their power, but bets they'll make him filthy rich. Are you up to the challenge of thwarting this [[TitleDrop Triple Trouble]]?
