Sonic Origins may be coming very soon, which is good news for those looking to take a spin down memory lane with the blue hedgehog. It doesn't look fake either, as the applicant is the Sega Publishing Korea Corporation. The classification date was on April 15, 2022, so only three days ago. The nationality is Japan (obviously) and the genre and application genre is action, which makes sense, since it's Sonic.

What is Sonic Origins?

Well, as you might expect from the name, it's about the origins of Sonic. That means it's a compilation of classic Sonic titles such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic the Hedgehog CD. Considering the age of these games, it makes sense that Sonic Origins was created for new fans of the series. The success of the recent films means there are a lot of young fans out there who would probably love to play upgraded versions of the first Sonic titles. 

 

The games will also not be emulated but ported to consoles and PC, which means that the development team can modify the games, which they have. For instance, the development team is planning to add ways to make it easier for beginners to play the games in a similar way to Sonic Colors: Ultimate. Additionally, it avoids the issue with emulation of Sonic 3 & Knuckles, which many emulators have struggled with.


Quick Take:

I've never played Sonic. I'm a bad man, I know, but something about Sonic was never very enticing for me. I never had a Genesis or any Sega console back in the 90's, and by the mid-2000's Sonic was pretty lame and was only going to get lamer for the next ten years or so. Now that I'm older,I probably will check out Sonic Origins when it comes out and see what I've been missing the past twenty years or so. Hopefully the wait will have been worth it.
