Fan Scene: Sonic 3 Complete Hack Restores Sonic 3 to its Original Design

September 21st, 2014

A team of enthusiastic Sonic hackers have created a version of Sonic 3 that restores the game to its originally intended design.

The hacking team consisting of Tiddles, Neo, That One Jig, ValleyBell, Flamewing and Hayate have created Sonic 3 Complete. This version of Sonic 3 arranges the stages in the way they are displayed in the original Sonic 3 level select screen. It also restores the Big Arms boss that is excluded when you play Sonic 3 & Knuckles and a new cut-scene has been added at the end of Launch Base to help make the narrative more coherent.

Various other small changes have also been made to create a more cohesive Sonic 3 experience in the style of the game’s original design before development lead to the 2 halves of the game being split into 2 separate cartridges. It’s a wonderful little project and you can download a copy of the ROM from the project’s official website. You will need to find a Mega Drive emulator to play the thing.
