Every game has remastered graphics and other. “enhancements” for modern hardware. You can play all of them as they were originally intended (including the old aspect ratio), but you can also experiment with features and modes that were never available on your Genesis or Mega Drive. You can play as Sonic, Tails or Knuckles in any of the games, and an “Anniversary Mode” brings in a widescreen ratio with infinite lives. You can earn medallions to unlock content by completing missions.

Refreshed aesthetics for the original four ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ games. Sega understands you want to play the original 2D Sonic the Hedgehog games again, and it’s ready to deliver. The Sonic Origins collection will be released on June 23rd on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch. The basic version will cost $40 (£33) and will include remasters of Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic CD, while the Digital Deluxe edition will cost $45 (£37) and will have tough missions, exclusive music, and cosmetics.

  • This won’t satisfy completists. Where’s the remaster of the classic 32X title Knuckles Chaotix, Sega? If you can forgive that oversight, though, this may be the easiest way to either indulge your nostalgia or introduce kids to the other iconic platformer of the 16-bit generation.
