Sega has announced that its Sonic Origins collection will release on June 23rd on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch. The $40 standard version will have remasters of Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, Sonic 3, and Knuckles and Sonic CD, while a $45 Digital Deluxe edition adds some difficult missions, and exclusive music and cosmetics.
Each game has remastered graphics and other “enhancements” for more modern hardware. You can play all of the games as they were originally intended, but you can also check out features and modes that were never available on your Genesis or Mega Drive back in the day. You can play as Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles in any of the games, and an “Anniversary Mode” adds a widescreen ratio with infinite lives. You can also earn medallions to unlock content by completing missions.
