Nothing about Heroes locations make any sense.


Heroes is the 3D game that runs off Genesis game logic for levels the most; "Here's some levels that look cool. Get through them." It's the only main one which doesn't give any spacial reference for where everything is (even if the others contradict other games, they do try to connect the levels within their own story), so you can literally put them anywhere and it'd still technically be just as valid as any other arrangement.


That was kind of my point. The locations make no sense so you can put them anywhere like the 2D ones.

Yeah and also remember that Heroes Casino Park which is part of Unleashed Empire City, is also on StH2's Westside Island.

I'm a bit curious just how dang big Westside Island is, cause if it could fit what is essentially the Sonic Universes New York City as well as Mobotropolis and both locations that were in Sonic 2 and are being newly added to it like Casino Park, I gotta say that the Island gotta be something sub-continental in size.

You could fit all of that easily into an area smaller than England. Two cities is hardly a continent.

Wait, when it was confirmed that Empire City is on Westside Island? I've could've sworn that Empire City is in a different location, somewhere close or on Sonic's World version of the United States.

Also worth noting that, even including Manhattan and Staten Island, New York City takes up only about a third of Long Island. Long Island's pretty big, but it isn't exactly close to continent-sized. Even if Empire City's on Westside Island (I don't remember that being a thing), I don't think size is a problem.

Empire City isn't on Westside Island. Where did you get that idea?

Okay NOW I'm officially confused to these locations.

We need a map of the World or something, we'll more specifically just Westside Island since I want to know what places are on it.

That and I think I'm confusing the 3 Casino cities Casino Night, Casinopolis, and Casino Park. The all got "Casino" in it, blah. :x

Workin' on it.

A quick overview:

Casino Park (Sonic Heroes)
massive gambling "city" in Empire City, accessed via Bingo Highway.

Casino Night Zone (Sonic 2)
Westside Island

Casino Paradise Zone (Advance)
...elsewhere. Just being thorough in listing places =P

Casino Street Zone (Sonic 4)
Whatever continent/landmass that holds Never Lake.

Casinopolis (Adventure)
Station Square

And Breezie controls the conglomerate that oversees them all, in addition to the Breeze TV media empire.

And all the rings you get in those stages game wise. Breezie is filthy rich. Even though some of those rings are dirty money probably.

This entire arc remains fantastic. Brilliantly fun art and expressions mixed with a continuity cavalcade. I'm surprised no one's brought up the Lost Hex on Eggman's screen. A bit of foreshadowing for Worlds Unite?

Does the Casinopolis brand have several locations? Because this very issue places Casinopolis on Westside Island.

Might have been an error. There's been little misnamings like that before.

Galsarnit, that was meant to say "Casino Night Zone." Chalk that one up to word-of-god typo =P

Yeah that is why I got confused, cause I saw Casinopolis placed on Westside Island.

Ugh, Sega with their naming. Theirs a Emerald Hill, Beach, Coast and Town but their all in separate locations as far as I can tell.
