Along with a Classic Mode, offering 4x3 visuals, finite lives, and game overs, there's an updated widescreen Anniversary Mode to play in with infinite lives. Story Mode takes you through all four games in Sonic Origins in one adventure, while Boss Rush Mode, Mission Mode, and Mirror Mode offer new ways to play.

There's even a Museum mode which promises Sonic fans “never-before-seen content”, which is always exciting. You can check out the full list below, as well as the new video, down below.
