Sonic Advance 3 is the third and last in the series of Sonic Advance games for the Gameboy Advance.
The game plays in much the same way as the previous 2 titles, only this time a partner can be selected to aid the main character during the game. There is also a mulitplayer mode for up to 4 players.
Dr. Eggman has used Chaos Control to break the world into 7 parts, and plans to rain confusion by turning each into a Dr. Eggman Empire. Sonic and Tails, having been separated from their friends, are teaming up to return the world to its original state. To do this, they must find all 7 Chaos Emeralds and use Chaos Control to undo Dr. Eggman's mischief. But Dr Eggman isn't resting on his laurels. He's used his engineering genius to perfect the ultimate fighting robot, and will do all in his power to stand in Sonic's way.
