Sonic Colors: Ultimate Switch players encountering graphical glitches and more
Sonic Colors: Ultimate’s initial launch does not appear to be going well, as a number of players – largely on Switch – have encountered severe graphical glitches and other problems.
The game officially won’t be out on September 7. However, SEGA is providing early access to Digital Deluxe owners, which is why reports are already springing up – largely through social media.
We’ve rounded up some of the Sonic Colors: Ultimate glitches players have shared below. Note that with the last video in particular, you’ll probably want to avoid watching if you have sensitivity to seizures.

As you can see, these issues aren’t minor graphical blips. They’re greatly impacting the experience and make it difficult for players to progress and complete levels. Other random glitches are also cropping up unrelated to the visuals.
Earlier today, we shared a video for Sonic Colors: Ultimate which compares the Switch and PS4 versions as well as the Wii original. It seems to show that load times on Switch are quite lengthy in comparison to other platforms, including Wii.
That’s the current situation at present. We’ll give you a heads up if we hear anything from SEGA officially regarding glitches with the Switch versions or any plans for future Sonic Colors: Ultimate patches.
