If you loved Sonic Origins, Sega just announced a brand new treat that you'll likely love, Sonic Origins Plus.
The compilation includes the Sonic Origins lineup with Sonic the Hedgehog 1, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic CD, but adds 12 emulated Game Gear games, playable classic Amy in all of the four main games, and playable Knuckles in Sonic CD.
It'll release for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on June 23, 2023.
It'll cost $39.99 both in physical and digital editions, but the former will also come with a 20-page artbook and a reversible cover. Both versions will also come with all the DLC released for Sonic Origins out of the box.
That being said, if you already own Sonic Origins, you don't have to buy the whole thing again. An expansion pack will be available for $9.99. That's not too bad a deal.
