Update: July 23, 2010
   We cracked open our final box of Sonic 2s this morning. Each box contains 50 units. NCS originally imported 5000+ copies of the game in the summer of 2001 so we might be able to sell all of our inventory by the game's 10th anniversary.

Update: March 24, 2008
   It took two years but our Under Defeat Limited Edition inventory finally broke below 50 copies over the weekend. As a comparison, we needed 3.5 years to clear out our entire DC Ikaruga inventory which we kept in stock from September 2002 to May 2006. The next question from curiosity seekers might be, "Which big/popular/hyped Dreamcast game from back in the day still hasn't sold out?" 

   As a tear rolls from our collective eyes, the game that has kept a stranglehold on a chunk of NCS' capital for a few years is none other than the Sonic Adventure 2 Birthday Pack. Back in the summer of 2001, we imported 5000+ copies to fill preorders to customers, shops, etc. By the summer of 2003, we were down to about 1500 copies but distributors in Japan and Hong Kong were impatient and slashed the price of the game. Lik-Sang summarily docked the retail price below $10. As the years passed and the inventory disappeared overseas, our stock began to sell again. As of today, we're down to 253 copies. Not bad but not exactly good either. We'll update our website again once the last copy leaves our warehouse and NCS finally closes our chapter on Sonic 2.

Update: Jan 06, 2007
   Due to the recent spike in interest and inquiries about the Sonic Adventure 2 Birthday Pack, NCS confirms that the stock that we have remaining for this product is NEW and from the original shipping containers that we received from Japan. When NCS first imported this item, we brought in a little over 5000 units to fill our preorders, store/vendor orders, and new orders from customers. We've been selling the inventory off over the past few years but we expect to have the game in stock for at least another 2-3 years.

«©NCSX» To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega gifts the Japanese gaming public with a special version of Sonic Adventure 2. Celebratory inclusions include a Sonic music disc, a gold tinted Sonic engraved coin and a history booklet which recaps the entire Sonic series from its humble beginnings on the MegaDrive to the current day.

» Gold tinted Sonic engraved coin
» History booklet

Update: June 22, 2001

   The mightiest version of Sonic Adventure 2 comes encased in a special glossy box which proclaims the 10th Anniversary of the blue furball. Noted on the lower-right corner of the box, "2 Days Only 2001.6.23~24". Shhhh, don't tell Sega we have it early.

Inside the packaging, the Sonic Adventure 2 game jewel case (the software plays in either Japanese or English speech and text, selectable from the game option menu) and the Birthday Pack impresses with it's Sonic History Booklet (written in English and Japanese). The bonus Sonic music CD which contains 23 tracks rings out musical bliss from all previous Sonic games including the original Mega-Drive Sonic the Hedgehog and the Saturn version of Sonic R. A final glittering prize rests on the shiny countenance of the Sonic engraved gold coin which features two likenesses of the hedgehog on front and obverse. Is it cool? Yes, it is. Probably one of the nicest deluxe products we've imported in a long while and an instant collectible for Sonic aficionados the world over.
