Need for Speed: Underground 2 Sha_Do is a special retail release of Need for Speed: Underground 2 made available in Japan on July 14, 2005 under the "EA Best Hits" label.
The additional subtitle is in reference to the artist Sha_Do, whom at the time of the game's release, designed liveries for Art Factory Graphics.
It was made available for PlayStation 2 as a boxed retail game, but was localised with an aimed release within the Japanese market. Changes include Japanese dubbing, localised car model branding, and new Sha_Do vinyls under the Art Factory brand in place of contest vinyls.

- Features seven exclusive vinyls, which ended up replacing a few Contest vinyls. As a result, the category "Contest" was renamed to "Art Factory and Contest".
