Trivia

Due to the mildly violent nature of the game, the ESRB rating was, for a time, in question. The official ESRB website originally had the game rated as T, along with GameSpot, but the official site listed E-10+. The T rating was seemingly further evidenced, however, by the fact that, at trade shows where Sega showed off the game, they asked only those 13 and older to play the title. Early builds of the game even had mild swearing in them, and the game does include two mildly offensive words (damn and hell). For the English Version of the game, Sega took out the human's blood, changed the color of alien blood from red to green, edited the word 'piss' and put 'tick' instead (Sonic says this), and censored the scene when a GUN soldier shoots Maria, cutting out as Maria is shot and falls to the ground. Regardless, the ESRB website later updated the rating to E-10+, thus making it unanimous.

After completing the "Space Colony ARK Mission", there's a cutscene of "The Eclipse Cannon" destroying the White House along with the city. The way it's presented is a very clear reference to Independence Day.

Two of the mini bosses in the game, Blue Falcon and Black Bull, take their names from two of the racing machines from F-Zero, driven by Captain Falcon and Black Shadow, respectively. As SEGA helped co-develop F-Zero GX, it's highly likely that these were intentional references to the series.

There were plans to have Sonic in the game's multiplayer mode although this idea was cut early on in development. The only thing that remains of him in the game's memory is his Japanese voice clips.
