It’s somehow been more than twelve years since Sonic Generations came out. While you can still get the game on PC, if you’re a console gamer, that means you’ve only been able to play one of Sonic’s best games if you still have a PS3, Xbox 360 or Nintendo 3DS lying around.
Today during PlayStation’s State of Play, SEGA announced they’ll be remedying that problem this fall when they release a remastered version of Sonic Generations on PS4/PS5, Xbox One/Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Of course, as evidenced by the fact you’re reading this article, you know there’s a twist: the game is being released as SONIC X SHADOW GENERATIONS. Not only will it feature a complete remaster of Sonic Generations, it’ll also feature a Shadow story campaign. There aren’t many details other than a promise of new powers and abilities for Shadow, so for now, you’ll have to content yourself with the trailer and screenshot below.
