Sadly what we all thought would happen has happened and Sonic 3 & Knuckles in Sonic Origins won’t include all the original soundtrack and this is presumably due to the fact that some of the soundtrack was composed by a certain Micheal Jacksonwhich is where it all gets very messy. What will happen instead according to Sonic social media manager, Katie Chrzanowski, is that long-time Sonic soundtrack composer Jun Senoue is working hard to recreate the music to be as faithful as it can be to the originals as possible. Sonic Origins will be available on multiple platforms on 23rd June.
“While unfortunately we can’t use all the original sounds from the Sega Genesis version of the game, Jun Senoue has been working really hard to adapt the original music that was composed in 1993 for Sonic Origins.”
“He’s been going so far as reproducing it, with the same sound chip from the Sega Genesis, and using his own digital audio tape collection to make this as faithful to the originals as possible.”
