Sonic Origins: A SuperParent First Look

This collection features four games from the 'Sonic the Hedgehog' franchise.

Sonic Origins is now available on consoles and PC. The game includes a collection of remastered Sonic the Hedgehog video games that were originally released on the Sega Genesis and Sega CD.

Sonic Origins includes four games:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Sonic 3 & Knuckles
  • Sonic CD

Each game can be played in two different modes: “Classic” and “Anniversary.” Classic Mode is the traditional experience for each game, with the game’s original rules and a limited number of lives. Anniversary Mode, meanwhile, gives players an unlimited number of lives.

The game also features a “Mission” Mode that allows players to complete missions with specific goals in order to collect Coins. The Mission mode also allows players to complete all of the included Sonic games “as one continuous experience.”

As players collect Coins, they can use them to unlock content in the game’s Museum, replay Special Stages, and more. The Museum allows players to listen to sounds and music, view artwork, and watch videos related to the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.

Finally, in addition to being able to earn Coins through the game’s Mission Mode, players can earn Coins as they play through the collection's four Sonic games in Anniversary Mode.
