Sonic Origins Editions

Sonic Origins’ Release Date Has Been Revealed Alongside Some Bizarre Editions

2022 is the year of Sonic!

SEGA has announced that Sonic Origins will release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, Steam and Nintendo Switch on June 23rd. It sounds like it will be a digital only release at least initially.

The collection will include:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Sonic CD
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 3
  • Sonic & Knuckles

You’ll be able to play the games in Classic mode which will feature the games in its original resolution and limited amount of lives, whilst Anniversary Mode will let you play the game in a new widescreen resolution with infinite lives.

There’s also missions which allows you to collect coins for use in the game’s museum mode which will let you unlock new content and special stages.

For a retro Sonic collection, some of the collections are downright bizarre. For instance the Start Dash pack will give you access to 100 bonus coins and a letterbox background whilst the Premium Fun Pack will give you access to hard missions and character animations in the main menu whilst the Digital Deluxe edition will give you camera controls over the main menu islands. None of things are particularly fundamental to the experience, but it seems odd to lock them behind extra editions.
