Sega have announced the release date for the eagerly awaited follow up to their Sonic Adventure title.. Sonic Adventure 2 for the Dreamcast.

The date has been set as June 23rd - prehaps more interesting though is the fact that the title is down for release in both Japan and America on the same date.. A global release of the title, instead of Europe getting a game several months later once the rest of the world has already played it a thousand times over.

What could make this even better news for gamers is that it's a day after the UK launch of the Gameboy Advance, and two weeks before Crazy Taxi 2 get's it's release for the DC - expect to see your local games shops very busy!

We'll bring further coverage, along with a full preview of Sonic Adventure 2 in the run up to it's release.
