Sonic & Knuckles for Genesis was released on October 18, 1994 in North America.

It was developed in the United States at Sega Technical Institute by members of Sonic Team, and was published by Sega worldwide.

Prior to the release of Sonic & Knuckles in North America, Blockbuster Video and MTV co-sponsored a tournament contest where kids were allowed to play a pre-release of the game, leading to a final tournament held at Alcatraz Island in San Francisco, California. A special on the game showing the tournament final, "MTV's Rock the Rock Warning", was aired shortly before the game's release.
