Description

Sonic and the Black Knightis the second entry in the Sonic Storybook series that began with Sonic and the Secret Rings. Wizard Merlia, grand-daughter of the great Merlin, summons Sonic to the mystical realm of King Arthur that is in grave danger. Arthur has been transformed into The Black Knight by an evil power emanating from Excalibur's scabbard and is a tyrant. Only Sonic is capable of wielding the great magic sword Caliburn and saving the kingdom by breaking Arthur's curse. As the story progresses you have to fight Arthur's knights and meet and battle several familiar faces from the franchise with story specific names.
