Well that’s the good news out of the way, now for the bad news. Firstly it’s only available in the US (although Amazon US are accepting international pre-orders) secondly it doesn’t come with a physical copy of the game.
Still it’s a pretty sweet deal and I’m pleased to see the 2D Sonic game we’ve all been waiting for getting some love from Sega. The collector’s edition comes with a limited edition Genesis style case. A 12″ classic Sonic statue. A plastic Sega Genesis replica which screams “SEGA” at you at the flick of a switch, a gold ring presented in a Genesis cart and finally a download code for the game on a metal card.
It’s a really nice set and I think I prefer it over the Sonic Generations boxset that was released a few years ago, which turned out to be poorly made and lacking in any real interesting content.
The release date is set at 31st of May 2017 and is available on PS4, PC and Xbox One. There is no confirmation as of yet that this is the definite release date of the game, or if the Collector’s Edition is due to come out before or after the main game but hopefully this date will be moved to an early time next year. We’re off to EGX next week where we’ll be playing Sonic Mania. Look out for our first impressions of the game soon!
