UPDATE: Sonic Origins Announced, Will Feature Taxman Remakes of Sonic 1, 2 & CD, Plus Sonic 3 & Knuckles

Thursday, May 27th, 2021

UPDATE: It has now been confirmed that Sonic 3 & Knuckles will be a widescreen port, like the other titles. Via the Sonic Pillar’s Katie:

Katie – MiniKitty on Twitter: “Been seeing quite a few of you asking about Sonic 3 & Knuckles in Sonic Origins and whether or not we will see the game in widescreen there. Just to clear that up…YES! Sonic 3 will also be widescreen!

Original Article continues below.

Sonic Origins has been officially announced as part of Sonic’s 30th Anniversary festivities.

The collection will include, for the first time on consoles, the remakes of Sonic 1 and 2 produced by Christian Whitehead, also known as ‘The Taxman’. It’ll also include his remake of Sonic CD, and the first re-release of Sonic 3 & Knuckles in a long time, though it doesn’t appear that it’ll be remastered like the other titles.

The game will be coming to “the latest platforms”, and more information will be announced later in the year. It’ll be released in 2022.

Video Spotlight: Shay Deconstructs the Sonic Franchise

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

I’d like to draw your attention to the latest episode of Shay Says. If you’re unfamiliar with the series then it’s a documentary-style video games show that deconstructs certain games of gaming franchises in a similar way to Egoraptor’s Sequelitis.

For the latest episode, Shay is taking a detailed look at the gameplay mechanics of the Sonic franchise (and when I say detailed, I mean detailed). 2 more episodes will follow that look at other aspects of the franchise.

While I wouldn’t normally recommend watching an almost feature length video about a games franchise, Shay has some incredibly interesting things to say about what works and what doesn’t regarding Sonic gameplay mechanics. He’s also one of the few people I’ve seen actively suggest alternative mechanics that might just improve the experience.

If you have the time then please take a look at the below video because it’s an extremely well made and unbiased look at what makes the Sonic franchise work so well and what doesn’t.
