Dr. Eggman kidnaps a group of GUN soldiers, including Topaz, and steals a map of the lost continent of Murasia. Pursuing him, Sonic and the gang find him planning to activate a hotspot located beneath an island that is the last remnant of Murasia. Engaging the Egg Battleship warship, they are joined by the Egg Fort, which has been recovered and refurbished into the GUN Fort V3. The GUN Fort sets out to destroy Eggman's vessel, not caring for the prisoners aboard. In desperation, Eggman tries to fire the Giant-Makan's main weapon, driving off the GUN forces. Sonic and Knuckles work together and destroy Eggman's ship. Eggman, his allies, and Sonic's friends then land on the island.
