Sonic is ready to go back to basics once again. On the horizon is the open world promise of Sonic Frontiers, which according to rumors should arrive at the end of 2022: but before shooting towards the future, the blue hedgehog will take a leap into the past.
Sonic Originsannounced for the first time last May on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the blue hedgehog, is near the launch. No, it is not yet time for an official announcement from SEGA, and in fact we ignore the exact date. But the signs are clear: sul PlayStation Store of Australia and New Zealand it was incorrectly published the cover of the game (the same image you can see as a thumbnail of the trailer below). Additionally, the collection also appeared in the Game Rating and Administration Committee (GRAC) database.
In short, there are few doubts: Sonic Origins is close to the finish line, and if it keeps the fast pace that the blue porcupine has accustomed us to, then the launch should be very close. So let’s expect SEGA to give us all the details soon.
5 GAMES INCLUDED: NO EMULATOR, THEY ARE REAL PORTINGS
But what will it be? As suggested by the title, SEGA has decided to collect within the same “casket” the titles that have marked the origins of the blue porcupine. in total i games contained in Sonic Origins are five:
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Sonic the Hedgehog 2
- Sonic CD
- Sonic the Hedgehog 3
- Sonic & Knuckles
It should be noted that, as confirmed by Takashi Iizuka of the Sonic Team, the game will not run on an emulator, but will instead be done and finished ports – which will allow, among other things, to be able to view them in 16: 9.
Over the course of his long career, the SEGA mascot has slowed down several times after a start at full speed, struggling to find a videogame identity in the 3D era: a difficulty that has often prompted developers to reinterpret its glorious past. Now, however, Sonic seems to have escaped the worst hypotheses, managing to go beyond the confines of the nostalgic audience and conquer new generations of fans thanks to the two films, with the latest arrival that has recently arrived in theaters and has already recorded 141 million. dollars at the box office after just two weekends.
