What happens in the Sonic Superstars animated prologue video?

The video shows Fang the Hunter having a dream about an ill-fated past encounter with Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy. After he wakes up, we see Fang is working with Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik and new character Trip as the trio wanders through an ancient ruin and battles a giant snake.

“While escorting Dr. Eggman and his hapless new helper Trip through a perilous ruin, Fang the Hunter will need to muster all his cunning to overcome past mistakes and escape the coils of a fierce new enemy,” reads the prologue’s description. “Meanwhile, Eggman discovers what may be the key to his next dastardly scheme.”
