Many players welcomed the announcement of the departure date of sonic origins… but this news brought an unexpected consequence for digital stores on various platforms. sega announced that all games included in this compilation will end up being removed.
It is something that surely no one imagined. But when will this happen? Well, as early as next month. Specifically speaking, on May 20 this year.
This applies to games Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles Y sonic cd. According to sega, the reason of its removal has to do with the departure of the aforementioned collection.
For some, this movement on the part of the company is a bit drastic, since it deprives players of acquiring the titles individually. It is to be imagined that those who buy them before that date will be able to download them again.
At least that’s how it will happen in most digital stores where it will also be sonic origins. But it won’t be the same shop from Switch.
sega clarified that both the first and second games of the series, which belong to the line Sega Ageswill remain available. The same can be said of sonic the hedgehog 2which is now part of the catalog of the company’s titles in Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.
Why aren’t Sonic games being pulled from all digital stores?
The big question is why doesn’t the same thing happen in switch. The possible explanation is that there must be an agreement between sega Y Nintendo. Especially in relation to the online gaming service of the second, whose second version with titles from Sega-Genesis It just debuted last year.
Perhaps Sega Ages is something handled separately in sega. But there’s no way to be completely sure without a bit of additional information.
Speaking of sonic originswill be available from June 23 in the digital stores of PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PCs. In the case of the latter platform, it applies to both Steam as the Epic Games Store.
It will be priced at $39.99 USD and will feature various presentations that include additional content. This has also caused a bit of controversy as it is confusing.
