Connection to Other Media
"Swatbots", originally robots that hindered Sonic and his friends in the 1993 Sonic the Hedgehog saturday morning cartoon show, make an appearance as an enemy in the game. The robots are described as "older models", referring to their presence in older Sonic media, and their visual design is a more modern take on the original Swatbot design.
In 2008, Sega hosted a contest to name one of the hostile alien races that would appear in the game. The winning entry, originally proposed by a Sega fan blog, was "The Zoah", a nod to a town name in Sega cult-classic Panzer Dragoon Saga.
