Sonic Origins official artwork and logo

I hope you're in the mood for a whole lot of nostalgia, because Sega has just unveiled Sonic Origins. This collection of classics brings with it remastered version of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD, along with a variety of bonus content to sink your teeth into.

So besides the spruced up visuals, you can expect to see new missions that allow you to unlock special stages and challenges, as well the ability to play in either Classic or Anniversary mode that comes with unlimited lives and a fullscreen resolution. Most curiously of all, each game will also come with new opening and ending cinematics!

Since words alone won't get us very far, allow me to share with you the freshly posted trailer. It'll clue you in quite quickly on what Sonic Origins is trying to do and just how fancy the new animations really are. Have a gander:

If all of this looks like the type of nostalgia you'd like to indulge in, you'll be pleased to hear that you won't have to wait all that long! In other words, Sonic Origins will be launching for PC, Xbox and PlayStation on June 23rd, 2022.

You can learn more about it, as well as try to decipher the absurd pre-order bingo chart, over at the official website. Enjoy!
