Set before the events of Sonic, Shadow goes on a run around the modern world after awakening from 50 years of suspended animation to solve secrets about his past. He is accompanied in his journey by treasure hunter Rouge the Bat and G.U.N. officer Topaz. Shadow and Rouge must also help G.U.N. (Guardian Units of Nations) forces in the battle against the invasion of the Black Arms led by Black Doom, who is manipulating dangerous thieves and bandits of Mobius to help conquer the planet.
50 years ago, a top-secret project known as "Project Shadow" had begun on the Space Colony ARK. Professor Gerald Robotnik had purposes to create an immortal life form to help cure even the most incurable diseases, as his main purpose was to cure his granddaughter Maria. With the aid of alien dark lord Black Doom, Gerald begun and completed his project, which gave birth to Shadow the Hedgehog, a black hedgehog with unknown limits of power. As Shadow soon befriended Maria, however, G.U.N. units who deemed Gerald's experiments as a threat to humanity ambushed him and his associates, resulting in most researchers getting killed along with Maria as Shadow was sealled away and frozen in a escape pod which crash-landed somewhere on Earth.
In Present Day, Rouge the Bat, a free-spirited treasure hunter of Mobius, is searching for a unknown treasure in a remote island of which only she had the map for.
