Considering this year marks the 30th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog, you’d think that Sega would be planning something special for him, riiiiight? Well, a French website has given an idea of what the company might have in store.
A retailer by the name of Sogamely has revealed a listing for a game called Sonic Collection, or Sonic the Hedgehog Collection. Though it didn’t detail what was included, this collection is rumored to include remasters of both Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2, utilizing the Star Engine technology that Christian Whitehead put together for the previously released Sonic CD and Sonic Mania. That means both of these Genesis classics would look and play better than ever before. Alas, there’s no official word on this yet, but it’d be quite a treat.
As for what other games could be included, there’s some oddball favorites that could be thrown in, including long-lost titles like Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles. And, hey, maybe even Sonic Advance.
This follows on the heels of Sega working on a remaster of Sonic Colors for current-gen consoles, though that’s also unconfirmed. Sega hasn’t said a word about this yet, but considering that the collection is due for a summer release – and E3 is right around the corner next month – we could know more sooner rather than later. Fingers crossed that we’ll get all the Sonic games we wish for. And maybe a little bit of Sonic R while we’re at it. What? We like foot racing. Enjoy this gameplay footage below, with just the right amount of awesome music.
