He's back... HE'S BAAAAAAAACK!!
Agent Stone in Sonic 3 A.I.R. (aka Stone 3 A.I.R.) is a Sonic 3 A.I.R. mod that takes place in an alternate timeline of the events that transpired in Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Being a former government agent being sent out to investigate the launch site of the Death Egg on Westside Island, Agent Stone has became loyal to the evil Dr. Robotnik, and will do anything he can to assist him in repowering the Death Egg.
The mod replaces a majority of the base game minibosses with Agent Stone piloting them instead, along with Stone taking the role of primary antagonist instead of Egg Robo when playing as Knuckles. Compared to last year's entry, this version covers all the way up to Lava Reef Zone. Stone will not be present in any zones following LRZ in this version.
