    Jon Burton, founder of Traveller's Tales and a leading figure behind many of its games, has just released a patch for Sonic 3D Blast (or Sonic 3D Flickies' Island, if you're living over in Europe) title "Sonic 3D Blast: Director's Cut." This patch includes multiple improvements over the original game, touting better controls, a world map, and Super Sonic, among other features.

    Prior to release, Burton has documented the development of the patch for quite some time, originally announcing it in a 25,000 Subscribers video on his GameHut YouTube channel. Improvements to the game were announced as development gradually progressed.

    The patch is available (in XDELTA format) on here. Do keep in mind that this is a patch, and does not contain any of the original ROM data.

    Happy playing, and a big thanks to Jon Burton for making this all possible!

    It should work on real hardware, but this patch is for the Genesis/Mega Drive version of the game. It won't work on the Saturn version.

    Besides, I don't think Burton was even involved in the Saturn port of the game; a different team handled it IIRC.

    Yep a different studio handled it which is why he lacks a lot of stuff from that game like the FMV

    Ehrmmm...
    i still prefer the Genesis version.
    Prettier graphics don't do it for me if the OST is shit.

    Sure the Saturn version might have fancier graphics and effects, but the OST of that version really drives me off from having real fun and enjoyment out of it.
    Nothing compares to the upbeat and well composed OST of the Genesis version, that alone is a strong point to choose it over the Saturn one.

    And now, let's add to that the fact that the DX version is out already for the Genesis version only...
    Yeah, a definitive winner without a doubt ;)

    Past tense because:
    1. You said: "people actually enjoyed playing this game back in like 1996". Back in 1996 I enjoyed it.
    2. I am not playing it right now? :lol:
    I still have my physical cartridge, though a friend of mine has my entire Genesis and the games, I might ask her for those little treasures of mine.

    I didn't have that bad of a time with the version that got rereleased on steam, well besides the special stages. The special stages were extremely confusing to me...
