Sonic Colors Ultimate is a remaster of the 2010 original that features “upscaled visuals, additional features, a new game mode, and enhanced gameplay,” while Sonic Origins is a new compilation that includes the first three Sonic games, as well as Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic CD. Sega will have more to share regarding Sonic Origins at a later date, but Sonic Colors Ultimate will be launching on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Epic Games Store on September 7, 2021.
