Sega has officially confirmed the Sonic Colors remaster and more
Plus retro compilation also announced for this year
Sega has officially confirmed that an HD remaster of Sonic Colors will be released later this year.
Sonic Colors Ultimate will be coming to Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PC on September 7.
The physical version of the game will be bundled with a Baby Sonic keychain from the Sonic movie.
There will also be a Digital Deluxe version that gives players early access, exclusive music, gold and silver werables, exclusive player icons and a ‘Sonic Movie boost’.
The news came as part of Sega’s Sonic Central presentation, which also teased a next-gen Sonic game and a new retro compilation called Sonic Origins, which contains Sonic, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic CD.
The Sonic Colors remaster has been heavily rumoured for a while. Last month, Gematsu spotted that German voice-over studio iksample had listed work on “Sonic Colors Remastered” in its portfolio of projects.
Adding further credence was a French retail listing for “Sonic Colors Ultimate”, which had the remaster down for a 2021 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Sonic Colors launched for Wii and DS in November 2010. The two versions featured entirely different gameplay, with Wii being developed by Sonic Team and the side-scrolling handheld game by Dimps.
Game publisher Sega previously promised to mark Sonic’s 30th anniversary this year with the release of new games and some major announcements.
Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka announced at SXSW Gaming 2019 that production on the next major Sonic the Hedgehog game was underway.
