Past, way cool
Sonic the Hedgehog is like a 16-bit Skyrim: SEGA has re-released the Mega Drive classics on just about every platform you can think of, and it shows no sign of stopping. The latest effort is Sonic Origins, a collection that brings Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic CD to modern consoles under one banner. Even if we've...
Sorry, no Sonic Origins screenshots yet.

First episode of Speed Strats
Sonic Origins is spin-dashing towards its launch next week on 23rd June, so SEGA has released a new video about the game to get everyone up to speed. It seems to be the first in a series of videos dubbed Speed Strats, and it gives a general overview of what to expect from this retro collection. So, one final recap...

Sonic Origins, on the whole, is looking like a lovely collection of the mainline, side-scrolling Sonic games.

No Sonic 3 footage, though
Sonic Origins is just a month and a bit away, and fans of SEGA's mascot are understandably excited to revisit those classic games on modern platforms. We know what the package includes — Sonic 1, 2, 3 & Knuckles, and CD, presented in widescreen and playable in two different modes — but we've seen very little of it...
A cut above
SEGA really dropped the ball earlier this week when it officially announced Sonic Origins. The remastered collection should be cause for celebration — it sounds like a great way to experience Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD, and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuck
All in the head cannon
Sonic Origins’ various versions and permutations may be more dizzying than Sonic Adventure’s unwieldy camera, but there’s good news for Blue Blur fanboys: Headcannon has confirmed it’s been recruited for the project. Many of you will recognise the team for its work on Sonic Mania, although it has a long history with...
Lord of the Rings
Update: A little more clarification on the contents of the pre-order packs and Digital Deluxe Edition for Sonic Origins have emerged courtesy of the game's Japanese website. Firstly, the Mirror Mode can be unlocked through gameplay, so you get early access if you pre-order. The coins, too, are for use in the Vault. The extra songs...
Confirmed for both PS5 and PS4
Sonic Origins hasn't so much leaked as it has spilled all over the floor. A listing for the retro compilation is now available to view on the Australian PlayStation Store, going into more detail on what the game contains. Firstly, the listing confirms the collection is heading to PS5 and PS4, with both versions...
