On May 27, Sega held a presentation entirely dedicated to one of their favorite characters - Sonic the Hedgehog. During the event, an updated version of Sonic Colors was announced, which will be released for the previous generation platforms in September this year.
Recall that the original Sonic Colors was released back in 2010 and received rave reviews from critics. Particular praise was given to the elaborate game world, including the heroes of alien creatures, whom Sonic and his friends must help. The remaster of the game will be released under a new name - Sonic Colors: Ultimate. In their presentation, Sega said that the improved version of the game will contain new visuals, improved gameplay and new game functionality. Interestingly, in addition to the game, there will also be a whole separate anime based on the Sonic Colors storyline.
As mentioned above, the event was dedicated to the Sonic universe. In addition to Sonic Colors, the developers talked about other projects: for example, the company is currently working on a completely new game in the Sonic universe - details have not yet been reported, but it is known that the release is scheduled for next year. Also, a collection of collectible games from the Sonic Origins franchise was presented, especially for fans of classic Sonic games. In addition, the animated series Sonic Prime is preparing to release on the Netflix platform.
Recall that the aforementioned Sonic Colors: Ultimate will appear in the Epic Games Store. As for other games in the series, they will appear on new platforms, including Amazon Luna and PlayStation Now, this summer.
