Sonic Origins Is Celebrating A Birthday With Four More Games


Four of the classic Sonic The Hedgehog games are on the way for his birthday with Sonic Origins

All of the Sonic fans out there can get ready to go a bit faster with yet one more collection coming to us all from SEGA. A new title that is poised to land on the Blue Streak's birthday of June 23rd, 2022 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC. Also to build off the recent release of the film too, but here we go with the announcement of Sonic Origins. Just as the title suggests too, it will have more or less all of the original titles remastered and ready for us all to take on again. At least for the first three titles and the SEGA CD title too. A nice grouping of things, but there are even more extras mixed right in too.

Sonic Origins will give us all of those classic maps and runs again with the ability to run through with Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles as we so wish. All in the classic mode of it all with the letterbox style for the screen, or we can go with the anniversary mode that gives us a full screen to look at and unlimited lives to make it all the way through the list of titles without getting a true game over. We will need that to make getting all of those medallions and other extra to look at once we need to take a break from running around. Now we just need to wait a little longer to be able to bring down Dr. Eggman once again. Have a look and see which version of the package will be for you.
