SEGA of America today announced the release of two combo packs, Sonic Mega Collection Plus paired with Super Monkey Ball Deluxe and Sonic Heroes packaged with Super Monkey Ball Deluxe -- both exclusively for the Xbox. 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 & Knuckles™, Sonic 3D Blast™, Sonic The Hedgehog® Spinball™, and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine™. Also included are six SEGA Game Gear Sonic titles, as well as SEGA Genesis favorites Comix Zone and The Ooze. True Sonic fans will also enjoy a bonus Sonic museum filled with art, comics and more.

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. The multiplayer party starts with up to four players challenging each other to a plethora of crazy mini Party Games like Monkey Bowling, Monkey Golf, Monkey Billiards and more.

Sonic Mega Collection Plus & Super Monkey Ball Deluxe 2 in 1 Combo Pack and Sonic Heroes & Super Monkey Ball Deluxe 2 in 1 Combo Pack are rated "E" for Everyone and are available at retailers nationwide for an MSRP of $29.95.
