SAN FRANCISCO (December 19, 2005) -- SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced the release of two combo packs, Sonic Mega Collection PlusTM paired with Super Monkey Ball DeluxeTM and Sonic HeroesTM packaged with Super Monkey Ball DeluxeTM -- both exclusively for the Xbox® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. These two-in-one combo packs combine several of Sega's most popular franchises into two great family friendly packs of fun in time for the holidays.

"These combo packs are the ultimate combinations of classic Sega fun." said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "We're proud to offer two 'Xbox Platinum Family Hits' combo packs that star Sonic and friends this holiday season. These two Sonic compilations are definite must-haves for long time Sonic fans and newcomers to the series."

Sonic Mega Collection Plus, a certified Xbox Platinum hit, includes seven of the most-loved Sonic games of all time, including: Sonic The Hedgehog®, Sonic The Hedgehog® 2, Sonic The Hedgehog® 3, Sonic & KnucklesTM, Sonic 3D BlastTM, Sonic The Hedgehog® SpinballTM, and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean MachineTM.

Sonic Heroes, also a certified Xbox Platinum hit, challenges gamers to explore huge 3D levels by controlling three characters simultaneously, each offering the unique individual ability of speed, power or flight. Multiple teams follow their own unique story paths across 14 massive stages. Their combined objective: to thwart the plans of Sonic's arch nemesis, the nefarious Dr. Eggman.

Super Monkey Ball Deluxe makes up the second half of both must-have combo packs. The ultimate party game keeps the action rolling with 300 stages of monkey rolling madness and banana collecting fun.
