Forums  /  Sonic series  /  Sonic 3 & Knuckles  /  Category for JUST sonic 3 section (up through Launch Base)? (Locked)

Hey! I'm wanting to speedrun this game, but sadly Sonic and Knuckles cart is pretty hit or miss these days, I've only gotten it to work once in the last year. My Sonic the Hedgehog 3 works just fine however.
It looks like you guys run the entire game though. Is there another page for just Sonic 3? I've searched and haven't been able to find anything, but there are speedrun vids on youtube that only go up to launch base.

I've been wondering about this too, but I've actually been wanting to speedrun only the Sonic & Knuckles half.


I doubt those will ever be added, because there would soon be a shitload of categories cluttering the leaderboads. Just those two would add at least four.

But no one is stopping anyone from running just Sonic 3. I did some S&K runs for fun, too 😛


Maybe someone can request only the game Sonic 3, it's a separate game after all.

I've done runs of just S3 before but I don't have a video of it anymore.

Some categories for this game has pretty few submissions and part of the reason might be the length and difficulty of both games together. But to add just S3 could mean adding S&K as well as potentially 100% meaning 8 new categories...

If enough people do competitive runs we can add it, but we need genuine interest first.


Those games would just need separate leaderboards, which is not a problem.


I would like to see a board for Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and I'll add a run to it when it's up.


^ This sort of response is the exact problem.

"I'll do a run when the board exists" is the opposite of how this sort of thing should work. Boards exist to track existing runs. If you want to run the category, just run the category.


The "Sonic 3" and "Sonic & Knuckles" categories are now included in the full-game leaderboard under the Miscellaneous tab. The first runs for these categories were in March 2019.
