Nearly a year after its announcement last year, Sonic Origins finally resurfaced this week. Not only did we receive new details and a trailer, but a release date as well.

There’s even more on Sonic Origins thanks to the latest batch of screenshots. They show the games themselves, but also extras planned like Mission Mode as well as the digital bonuses.

SEGA has provided an official update on Sonic Origins, including a release date.

In case there was any doubt, the collection has now been officially confirmed for Switch. It will be available for Nintendo’s console on June 23, 2022.

Sonic Origins details

The leaks continue for Sonic Origins. After the collection was rated in South Korea and Australia, a listing has now appeared on the PlayStation Store, providing new details.

Sonic Origins will include remastered versions of Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic CD. There’ll be a new opening and ending animation for each game, new unlockables, and even an Anniversary mode.

Here’s the full rundown:

Original (4/18): Sonic Origins had originally been announced last year as an HD compilation of past Sonic games, set to launch in 2022. However, Sega has been very quiet about the project since, leading to speculation of development issues, if not outright cancellation. It seems now that that may not be the case.

A recent Korean rating for the PC version game has just surfaced, giving it a “suitable for all ages” rating. Most importantly, this means a release of Sonic Origins is still in the cards, and could possibly happen sooner rather than later.

SEGA announced a number of different projects and initiative during Sonic Central back in May. A few different game releases are planned, including Sonic Origins.

SEGA has only shared a few details about the collection thus far. We do at least know that Sonic Origins will contain Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles as well as Sonic CD.

In an interview with Game Informer, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka had this to say about the project:

Following today’s Sonic Central presentation, SEGA has issued a press release recapping all of the major news. There were a number of announcements during the show, including Sonic Colors Ultimate, Sonic Origins, and a new project from Sonic Team.
