This article pertains to the beta elements of Sonic Unleashed.

Xbox 360

Unused graphics

On the Xbox 360 version of Sonic Unleashed, there are early map graphics left over for the Spagonia Town Stage. Although the map is still the same, the icons on it are different.

  • Earth looks more of a globe in the early game.
  • The early icon of the Shop resembles a house while the final version has some souvenirs added to it.
  • The early level select icon does not show the sun and moon, unlike the final version.
  • The location of Professor Pickle's laboratory shows his face in the early files. The final version displays books with a feather.

The graphic is taken from Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) instead of the image of Sonic's head used in the final game. Collecting it, however, has no effect on the life counter.

Unused voice clips

Chip (tutorial dialogue)

There are several clips of Chip explaining about the controls, with different button prompts. It is unknown why this was implemented in here.

Hey what's this? We should take it with us as check it out later. V_072 Chip talking about the three purple key-like objects scattered for the player to find. A different clip is used instead.
Hey, look! It's another one of those things, Sonic. Let's keep looking for more. V_073 Seems like Chip would give more information about the key-like objects. However, he stays silent when they are collected in the final version of the game.

Unused PS2 delete icon

In the SD version, on page 6 of the manual, the game features an option to delete one's save file. Although this remains true in the Wii Version, the PlayStation 2 version does not show it in the final game. The only proof of its existence is an image with the PlayStation 2 buttons.
