Sonic will soon be celebrating its 30th anniversary. SEGA has not announced anything about a new video game, but there is no doubt that it is preparing something and new clues indicate that, as part of these plans, there could be a collection that includes one of the most controversial games is the Blue Hedgehog.
SEGA’s mascot will turn 30 next month and the surprises that SEGA anticipated almost 2 years ago (and that were delayed by the pandemic) remain pending.
This summer is going to be a very special one for SEGA and it seems that he will not pass up the opportunity to celebrate with Sonic fans and there is good reason for fans of classic Sonic to be excited.
SEGA WOULD BE PREPARING A COLLECTION OF SONIC
We say the above because unofficial information that comes from the informant Zippo indicates that SEGA would be preparing a re-release of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles.
According to the insider, this is not a joke. It may seem impossible due to the situation around the development of the game, but apparently SEGA would have found a way to launch the title without this representing a problem. Because of this, SEGA would have made “some changes” (via Nintendo Life ).
Of course, the Japanese company has not spoken about this information, so we recommend taking it as a rumor. However, it also takes into account that Zippo is a recognized informant; in fact, it recently revealed the existence of several Nintendo games in development, such as a new installment of Donkey Kong and Metroid. There were no details about it, but the insider mentioned that we will know more soon.
WHAT HAPPENED TO SONIC 3 AND SEGA?
In case you don’t know why the re-release of Sonic 3 is considered unlikely, you should know that it is due to an alleged collaboration with singer Michael Jackson to compose tracks for the game.
Until today SEGA has not confirmed the collaboration, but people involved in the development (via Nintendo Life ) have mentioned that, in effect, Jackson participated in the issues.
It was precisely during the development of the game that the allegations of alleged child sexual abuse arose. According to some close to the development of the game, Jackson does not appear in the credits of the game because the artist asked that his name not appear because, although he did his best work in the composition, he was not very happy with the final result after the tunes were compressed on the 16-bit SEGA console.
DOES SEGA WORK ON A SONIC COLLECTION?
As we mentioned, very soon SEGA will be celebrating 30 years of Sonic, so you could expect it to announce something related to games in the franchise.
Thus, the hedgehog anniversary will take place in the month of E3 2021, so we do not doubt that SEGA will take the opportunity to celebrate in style with the announcements it has prepared.
In addition, the idea of SEGA working on a relaunch of Sonic 3 is not at all far-fetched, on the contrary, since a collection with the hedgehog’s original titles would not be bad at all to commemorate its 30 years.
And you, what do you think about it? Do you think SEGA will release Sonic 3? Tell us in the comments.
Sonic will turn 30 on June 23.
