SEGA has announced that it will be delisting the digital versions of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic & Knuckles, and Sonic CD, this May. The move comes ahead of the launch of Sonic Origins this June, which includes remastered versions of all four titles.

Sonic 1 and 2 will remain available via SEGA AGES for Nintendo Switch, and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will also be playable via SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive on Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack. However, the original standalone versions of the SEGA classics will be removed from the Microsoft Store and PlayStation Store next month.

Sonic Origins is coming to Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC on 23rd June, presenting Sonic 1-3, Sonic & Knuckles, and Sonic CD in their original state via Classic Mode, and brimming with bonus features via Anniversary Mode. The original standalone digital versions of each game will be delisted from 20th May 2022.

  • They need to drop the price to 20 usd. 40 is taking advantage. Even capcom sells the Castlevania collections at 20. They are packed full of content. I could run through all the sonics in 5-10 hours.
  • Big reason I'm not buying the collection is that I've been spoiled with Xbox Backwards compatibility and just played through these games on my Xbox One last year. Now they are being delisted. It get it. I just hope its not pike GTA Definitive Edition. These better be the best versions of these games yet.
  • #2 it seems like Sega have actually got people who care about the games working on them, so I imagine we're safe.
  • Give me Knuckles Chaotix, please.
  • Repackaging and overpricing roms. Do. Better. Sega.
  • Can you still get the originals, if you put the Sega MegaDrive ultimate collection for xbox 360 into an xbox one console.
    Back when, it used to install some of the standalone titles. Can't remember exactly which ones though.
    Anyway played and completed the XBLA versions, which I feel are quite good if not perfect ports already, so this is not really needed.
    Would've rather liked to have full on remakes in the Sonic Generations engine. Would've gladly paid 40€ for that.

    No that unfortunately was removed a while ago for whatever reason.
