Leading up to its June 23 release, Sega has released a new gameplay overview trailer for Sonic Origins. The trailer was shown off during Sega’s Sonic Central showcase.
Essentially a remastering of older Sonic games, Sonic Origins features a number of new features, including the ability to play as different characters in games where it was originally not possible. For example, players can play the original Sonic the Hedgehog as Tails, or levels from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 can be played as Knuckles.
Sonic Origins‘ games will feature both Classic and Anniversary modes. Classic mode plays the games at their original resolutions, and with their original constraints of having limited lives. Anniversary mode, on the other hand, features fullscreen resolution as well as unlimited lives.
Sonic Origins will feature Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 and Knuckles, and Sonic CD.
Sonic Origins is coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Here are more details about the game’s PC requirements. And before you fully commit to it, here are ten things you should know about Sonic Origins.
