Sonic Origins will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Switch, and PC starting June 23, 2022, the 31st birthday of the blue hedgehog, with four remastered video games and lots of exclusive content.
Sonic Origins is a collection originally unveiled on the occasion of Sonic Central 2021: it is a collection of old classics created by SEGA to allow fans approaching the series thanks to the new films to get to know the character better. The collection includes four great 90s classics, namely Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD, and Sonic 3 & Knuckles, all available in original and remastered versions enhanced with new content.
As you can see in the trailer, Sonic Origins will allow you to select the “Classic Mode,” with original resolution and limited lives, and the new “Anniversary Mode,” with full screen and unlimited lives. The game will also include new missions that will reward players’ skills with “Medallions,” which can be spent in the new “Museum” area to unlock new content and special levels.
SEGA has also announced much new content that can only be unlocked via pre-order, purchasing certain editions of the game or DLC, including the hard mode.
