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 in action. It's fortunate, then, that Sonic-focused outlet Tails' Channel has secured a little more for us.
The video in the above tweet is from a South Korean presentation about the retro collection. It shows off the game's Anniversary mode, which runs the games in widescreen mode, gives you unlimited lives, and allows use of the Drop Dash — a manoeuvre introduced in Sonic Mania. We see Super Sonic zooming about in the original game, Knuckles and Tails falling into Hidden Palace Zone, and some shots of the game's menus.
It's only a minute long, but fans will no doubt appreciate an extra look. One thing that does stand out by its absence is Sonic 3 & Knuckles, which we've seen very little of, if any, so far. Many believe it's because some of the music isn't present due to ongoing licensing troubles. We hope all the tracks are included — the music is one of the series' real strengths — but we'll just have to wait and see.
