Featured stories

Mobius: 30 Years Later - Five Years of Peace


The story begins as news reporter Sasha Cat recaps some of the events of past years, including the rise and fall of King Shadow. She finishes with a description of the "Five Years of Peace" brought about by Sonic the Hedgehog's rule. The scene then changes to Sonic and Queen Sally's son Manik seeing his image on TV and becoming excited, expanding to reveal the rest of the royal family (including Manik's twin sister Sonia). As Sonic and Sally announce they are going out for the evening, Knuckles' and Julie-Su's daughter Lara-Su arrives to babysit the twins, much to the kids' delight.

Later, Lara-Su tries to get the kids to bed but finds it not an easy task. She later contacts her parents. Meanwhile, Lien-Da has been watching Lara-Su and the children. She orders her teams to move out, not wanting to harm the children.

The next day at the celebration Lara-Su meets up with the Prowers (Tails and his family) and talks to them a bit before setting off. While Sonic is giving his speech, Lara-Su finds one of Lien-Da's teams. She attacks them, but only to find out they were a decoy. Lien-Da launches a rocket (via RPG) straight at Sonic, and Lara-Su realizes she is too late. However, Sonic and his family are saved at the last moment by Silver the Hedgehog.
