*Unofficially confirmed: Eggman is a playable character. [http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=932811&topic=33264876]
*After doing the same thing that the user did in the GFAQS Board link above, I came to realize that the third icon on the bottom resembles a silhoutte to that of Rouge... ;)
*SEGA Japan has updated their character page for Chaos. I wonder why... Hm... ;) [http://sonic.sega.jp/chara/chaos/index.html]
*My insights on another character(s): I don't know much about this "Ali Baba" character so I took the liberty of checking out the Wikipedian page on it (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_Baba
). After learning more about it, I think it's safe to say that this "treasure" that Ali Baba finds may also be the same that Tails finds in the game, and guess who these/this "thieves/thief" will be? Oh, I don't know... maybe...uhh... Jet (and possibly Wave and Storm as well).
*One stage-specific mission for Sand Oasis will have you going through the stage in reverse [http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=932811&topic=33286891]. Uh.. Sonic R much?
