Sonic Origins remasters classic games with new art this June

Sonic Origins collects together the classic Sega quadrilogy of games with fresh art on June 23.

Sonic Origins will remaster the original four Sonic Sega classics for new consoles with a fresh art pass and new animated content arriving on June 23.

Releasing on Switch, PC, PS4/PS5 and Xbox One/Series X/S, the remastered versions of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic CD, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles will feature a toggle between Classic and Anniversary modes.

You can play as Sonic, Tails or Knuckles in the games, so everyone who turned out to watch Sonic 2: Officially The Best Video Game Movie Adaptation Of All Time over the last couple of weeks will be happy.

The remastered games also come with a number of other tweaks and additions though they're locked into a baffling series of deluxe editions and  pre-order bonuses that you literally need a spreadsheet to understand. Sonic is now a mid-tier always online FPS looter shooter.

What in the Excel spreadsheet…

If you pre-order the game then you get the Start Dash Pack DLC, which included 100 Bonus Coins and has the Mirror Mode unlocked straight away, rather than having to progress through the game yourself to get it. But the Premium Fun Pack will add extra Hard Missions, as well as some more baffling perks like "Character Animation in the Main Menu". DVD special features are back, baby!

Sonic Origins releases on Switch, PC, PS4/PS5 and Xbox One/Series X/S on June 23, the basic package appears to cost $40 (through early PSN store pages) while the premium deluxe edition with all those fancy main menu character animations appears to be just a few dollars more at $45.
