Since we didn't have online capabilities built into our gaming consoles way back when, some of our most memorable gaming moments were shared with friends or siblings together in the same room. Sega has taken the necessary steps to help you relive those unique moments by bringing Bluetooth multiplayer capabilities to two of their classic games: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Streets of Rage. The most recent update to Sonic the Hedgehog 2 allows you to pair up with a friend locally via Bluetooth and take on Dr. Robotnik cooperatively, or you can go head-to-head and race against each other as either Sonic or Tails. If a game is interrupted for any reason, you can jump right back in and pick up where you left off or start anew. Streets of Rage also now allows you to play cooperatively with a friend via Bluetooth in order to clean up the streets. Both Sonic 2 and Streets of Rage require you to have a second generation or later iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to take advantage of the new Bluetooth multiplayer capabilities. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is available in the App Store for $5.99, while Streets of Rage is available for $2.99.
