Sonic Origins: Trailer features game modes, including Anniversary and Classic

Sonic Origins

Sega has released a new trailer for Sonic Origins, the collection arriving next week that includes Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic CD, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles. The video shows the various modes present, including the Anniversary one with updated rules and visuals and the Classic one that comes as close as possible to the original experience.

As we learn in the video, once you reach the main menu, players will be able to access in various ways. Anniversary features endless lives and full-screen view, while Classica has the original rules and classic 4: 3 aspect ratio.

If you want, then there is the Story Mode, which allows you to face all four games in the collection in chronological order as if they were a single game, without interruption. To these are added the Boss Rush, in which to face all the bosses in a row, the Mission Mode, with timed missions, and finally the Mirror mode, which basically flips the view horizontally.

We remind you that Sonic Origins will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X | S, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch starting Thursday, June 23.

Sonic Origins game modes revealed in new video

Sonic Origins, the upcoming compilation of classic Sonic Games, has a lot of game modes. And Sega has released the first of  series of videos, entitled “Sonic Origins: Speed Strats,” which give us the rundown.

Check out the new video below

The description reads:

“Introducing: Sonic Speed Strats! Take a deep dive into Sonic Origins and learn all about the new modes and additions to this remastered collection. Sonic Origins releases digitally on June 23rd, 2022!

We have Anniversary Mode, and that features enhanced widescreen visuals, in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Then, there is Classic Mode, which enables an old-school 4:3 ratio, and it also gives you a limited number of lives.

There is a Museum Mode, which promises “never-before-seen content,” and a Mirror Mode, which reverses the levels. We also have Mission Mode, Boss Rush Mode, and, of course, Story Mode. The letter fuses the first three Sonic games into one big adventure.

The animated cutscenes are one of the more intriguing—and possibly rubbish but also possibly cool—features. And there are new animated cutscenes, which bookend each of the old games. Sega had done this, I suppose, in order to drive home the notion that this really is one cohesive game.

The new game is out on June 23rd, for PlayStation5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
