Sega has delayed Sonic Colours Ultimate’s physical release date in Europe.
While a revised physical launch window hasn’t been confirmed, the game will still be released digitally as planned on September 7.
“Due to unforeseen logistical issues, all physical editions of Sonic Colours: Ultimate, which include both the standard and keyring edition; will be delayed across all EMEA markets, excluding Australia and New Zealand,” Sega said.
“This does not impact the digital release across all first party platforms. Sega is committed to customer satisfaction and we apologise for this unfortunate delay.”
Sonic Colours originally released for Wii and DS in November 2010. The two versions featured entirely different gameplay, with the Wii one being developed by Sonic Team and the side-scrolling handheld game by Dimps.
Sonic Colours Ultimate was announced in May as part of a livestream celebrating the franchise’s 30th anniversary this year.
The event was also used to reveal a new retro compilation called Sonic Origin, which will contain Sonic, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic CD, and to tease a new mainline series entry, both of which are scheduled for release in 2022.
