    Anyone know if they ever decided to do a physical release for this one? I know xboxone and ps4 are digital only, but is the switch version digital too?

    I've been looking out for a physical Switch release, but as far as I have seen it still hasn't been confirmed. I'd guess even if there was going to be one, it would be a while after the digital release, annoyingly.

    There was a leaked pic of the physical copy ( er mockup ) for Switch, not sure if it was real though. There's a Collector's Edition for all platforms ( PC, Switch, Xbone, PS4) but the game itself is still digital only. It kinda sucks for the ppl who preordered the Collector's Edition if they end up releasing the physical copy afterward.

    Yeah this "collector's edition" stuff without the game is dumb, I just haven't gotten around to cancelling mine when I heard there is no disc, I better do it soon then.

    This happens all the time now. I remember Child of Light and some other games having "Collector's Editions", but all you got was a bunch of merch and a download code. I guess our best bet for a physical release on a PS4 is Limited Run. They did Shantae, Dariusburst CS, Wonder Boy ... Why not Sonic?

    It makes no sense at all. It was just like Battle Garegga for the ps4, let's include everything minus the actual game. Maybe limited run will do something.

    Based on their cock up with Wonderboy I hope not..

    This is a game that I'm actually excited for. It's not quite what I felt we were promised - a Sonic game created as if it were meant for Saturn - but we're getting some new content and mostly remixed content apparently. I'm fine with doing a new Green Hill Zone, but after that it should be a new game. Oh well.

    Forgot I even pre-ordered the PS4 version almost a year ago. Not sure if I want to keep it though. Eh....

    4 new zones, I think. The classic stage remixes seem to be fairly interesting though ( Green Hill Underground in particular, even though its inclusion seems to be getting the most criticism, aside from Oil Ocean at least).

    Reviews are in and they're really good! I don't think I've been this excited for a new Sonic game since Adventure.

    The only thing that worries me is that no Switch review codes were sent out, only PS4 and XB1. I'd rather get it on the Switch, but I don't want an inferior version.

    I don't think the Switch will get a watered down version. Or at least I hope so!

    I mean come on, the console has been out for half a year and should be able to handle this don't you think?

    Of course. It's not a game that is going to push any system, but the fact that they didn't send out review codes to Nintendo sites just seems a bit odd. Also, the PC release has been delayed a few weeks, so I am guessing there is still a bit of work to do on that version.

    I'm sure it will be fine. It just seemed a bit strange to me.

    Yeah, let's hope the best for the both of us. I'll be in for the Switch version too
    Looking forward to play the game tomorrow then!

    I got up early this morning to play a bit before work and it really was great fun. It's just like the Megadrive titles. I think you unlock a few new powers later, but at the moment it's basically the same as the first 3 games. I played through Green Hill and Chemical Plant, which were very nostalgic, but with enough new stuff to keep them interesting. I also played stage 1 of the first new zone, Studiopolis, which fits in perfectly. It really could be a level from one of the old games.

    I'm not too keen on the bonus levels where you collect the balls, but they're the same as they used to be, I didn't like them much back then. The new UFO chaser ones seem interesting. I've only played a couple, and they've been easy and slow, but I'm guessing they'll get a lot harder as they go on.

    It's about time! I am, however, annoyed that the PC version is Windows only. I'd be all over a Linux version on steam.

    Controls, Animation, Music, & Design. These guys fucking nailed it. I'm sure Naka would be impressed by this.

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.

    That basically confirms the vibes from the Eurogamer.net review.

    It's unbelieable it has taken this long, but I'm delighted to hear Sonic 2D is back on form. I'll wait and see if it gets a proper physical release in the next month or so, but if not I'll dip digital for this. Sonic 4 Episode 1 was pretty shitty, never bothered with Episode 2.

    For the record, I didn't think Sonic Generations was too awful. It played alot of tribute to the Megadrive and Mega CD games.

    I think the Switch might be getting a physical copy of the game but I couldn't wait that long and just downloaded the game. I agree with everyone saying sonic is finally back to form once again after sucking for what it seemed like forever. The levels are huge definitely reminds me of sonic cd in that sense but this game borrows something from all the 16 bit sonics.
    Insert funny sig here.
