Sonic Arena is a game that will bring fighting to the next level. It would have a collision of some of the toughest and most popular Sonic characters, and some of the greatest and most popular Sonic stages. The game will have stages and characters that you can play as in the beggining, and stages and characters that you have to unlock. Here is some information about the game:

Secret Character (Both Versions):
Note: Each character is unlocked by earning a certain amount of points in each arena. Points are earned by how good a battle you put up. The less you get hit, the less you get beat, and the more hits and deaths you cause the other character to get, the more points you get. Points also unlock other characters and stages. Emerl requires the most points out of all the characters and stages to be unlocked.

Note: Since many peope like 2D Sonic and 3D Sonic, people can choose what D they want on stages on the stage select menu. 2D stages bring more of a Super Smash Bros. kind of perspective, and is recommended for people who are paying with a friend. 3D brings more of a realistic view of the area, but is recommended for people who are playing against a CPU. If you're playing with a friend, the 3D stages will have a split screen.
Like I've said before, there will be points, earned at the end of each battle. They unlock certain characters and stages. And stages will let you choos wheteher to be in 3D or 2D.
Characters will have standard moves, punches, jumps, kicks, and also ground attacks and midair attacks. Characters will be able to perform double jumps (some can perform mor than one, depending on their size and weight) But characters will also be able to perform special attacks that sometimes don't involve punching and kicking and are unique atacks for the player (like a Spin Dash and Homing Attack for some, flying for Tails and Cream, etc.).Characters will also be able to perform POW moves. Taking the name from Sonic Chronicles, POW moves are moves performed by characters depending on the amount of energy in the Bar. The Bar is a bar seen at the top of the screen. The more hits you give to the opposing fighter, the more energy you get in the bar. There are 3 POW moves that the character can do. Heres an example:
This is an example of Sonic's Bar. The energy that you get from beating up enemies goes into this bar. When the energy gets to or passes the line, you will be able to perform a POW move. The lower the line, the less effective the POW move is, but the higher the line, the more powerful. Ther are three POW moves per character. An example of Sonic's:
First Line: Blue Tornado. Sonic spins around the stage. causing a Tornado to pick everybody up and drop them, causing damage.
Second Line: Sonic Boom. Sonic gains a huge boost in speed and a little in power. He can still get damaged, but when he touches somebody, they get damaged.
Third Line: Super Sonic. Sonic gains invincibility, can't get damaged, greatly gets his speed and power increased, and can fly.
Note: POW moves can only last a short while, and once you do one, all your energy in your bar goes away.
As I said before, points are what you get after you finish a battle. The amount is determined after a battle by how much you hit and defeated an enemy, and how much you get hit or defeated. Points can also unlock characters, stages, and special features to the game.
There are plenty of modes to this game. Some are:
Time Attack: The one to get the most KO's within a time limit wins.
Survival: Each character gets a certain amount of lives. You need to beat everyone before they beat you.
Ring Attack: Rings will be scattered throughout the stage. Collect the most rings in the time limit. And beat your enemies to get the rings they collected.
Diehard Challenge: You get one life and 3 other characters fight you with 3 lives. Try to beat them before they beat you!
Arena: You go through a series of challeges too beat different characters in different stages. At the end you will have to face a boss. The bosses include:
