SEGA releases new trailer sonic origin This requires an in-depth look at the new modes and additions in the remastered collection.
The video starts with a look at the remastered visuals by showing a comparison between the original and the updated version through a scene in Sonic 2.
It also displays a menu where you can choose which mode to play. There’s Anniversary Mode, Classic Mode, Boss Rush, and Mirror Mode, all of which can be played in any of the four games.
Classic Mode is just that, as it only displays the game in its native 4:3 aspect ratio, with updated visuals. Anniversary mode features a full 16:9 screen display with an unlimited number of lives. The series also includes the first widescreen versions of Sonic 3 and Knuckles when played in Anniversary Mode.
Story Mode combines all four games into one connected adventure. It begins with new animated opening and closing cutscenes connecting each title of Sonic’s classic adventures. That said, the original intro and epilogue are included on the Sonic CD.
In Boss Rush mode, you’ll face off against Metal Sonic, Dr. Eggman, and other enemies, while in Mission mode, you’ll take on a variety of missions across four matches. The better you do, the higher your ranking will be.
Mirror Mode lets you play each game in reverse, offering a fresh take on classic games.
The video also introduces the new currency coin. You can collect coins by playing each game in Anniversary Mode or by completing missions in Mission Mode. Coins can be used to instantly retry your failed levels, or to unlock content in the museum.
Speaking of the museum, it showcases a wide variety of concept art, box art, music and videos from Sonic’s 30+ year collection. You can even unlock some never-before-seen content in the Premium Collection.
Sonic Origins is coming to PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as Switch and PC on June 23 via the Epic Games Store and Steam.
