Sonic and co.'s New Year's celebration is interrupted by a sudden eclipse of the Sun, which is supposedly caused by a malfunctioning Egg Moon. To make up for it, Eggman lights the town with giant Mirror Towers that power his specially designed Sunshine Balls from the Eggman Company. Although Eggman is praised as a hero, Sonic is not convinced and starts toppling the Mirror Towers that Eggman uses to power the balls, much to the shock of everyone else.
