So, with very little news about the new Sonic the Hedgehog title coming out later this year, SEGA has decided to re-release Sonic 1. Again. This re-release will be branded as a 3D classic, and feature, obviously, 3D. Western release has not been confirmed yet, but I'm sure it will be announced soon. And not only will you be able to buy Sonic 1 for the 1500th time, you'll also be able to buy Tails Adventure, originating from the SEGA GameGear. Tails Adventure is a Metroidvania style spinoff, that hardly has gotten the attention it deserves. Not to mention, the Taxman (Christian Whitehead) remastered port of Sonic 1 to iOS is also set to release later this month.

EDIT: Sonic 1 (Master System) and Sonic Drift 2 (GameGear) are also slated for standard VC release.

Here we go again.

Hopefully it will have been worth the weight actually do good with a 3D makeover, still I'm sure most of us have already re-played that game more times than devs tested it.

So sonic gets a 3D classic, but original Mario only gets a VC release?
Wut?
Probably boils down to Sega putting a little more time into their re-releases lately than Nintendo. I'm seriously worried about the way Nintendo is handling their 3DS e-shop in NA, generally, though. I've heard mostly bad things. :(

But back on topic, this looks pretty interesting. It's a nice, if not short, breath of new life into an enjoyable classic. Can't wait to see what the extent of the 3D features are, and if the port is on par with the original (wasn't it ported over to GBA/NDS and received poorly?).

Lastly, any word on if Tails Adventure will be getting the 3D treatment, as well?

Heard Sega is putting a lot more time into their VC with spin dash toggles, button remaps, saving, and different television screen simulating scan line stuff so hopefully they'll be better than the mediocre effort Nintendo's been doing with VC

It kinda does say something about Nintendo when Sega of all people is putting more effort into releasing more 3D classics and not only that but releasing games that are worth making into 3D classics, I'd much rather play Sonic 1 again in 3D than Urban fucking Champion.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
