CONFIRMED! The Next Game In The Sonic Collection Is...


Well well. What do we have here? Told you so.




 It's back.

 

And I promise you that I'm not shitting you. It was thought to be impossible, but it's coming. There will be some changes, though.

More soon.


Update 05/21/21: 

More details, as promised:

-There will indeed be changes done to the music. It appears to be the beta music that was originally intended. Don't expect ANY the songs that MJ and Buxer worked on to return. This is going to be a divisive decision for many in the community, but many need to understand that this is how it had to be, in order to get the game re-released.

 -Angel Island, Hydro City and Marble Garden should be fine. 

-This deal over the music was finalized early in 2020. 

-They're now allowed to use Sonic 3 in promotional materials again, which is why the Sonic 3 Tiger game system got a re-release last year.

-Can"t get into the full legal logistics today, but there was a changing of the guard at the Jackson estate in 2018, and that lead to talks opening up again.

-This collection was originally going to be developed by an outside studio, but SEGA decided to bring it in -in house. This will be the first SEGA internally developed Sonic collection since Sonic Gems Collection in 2005.

-There are fans involved in the development of the collection. And no, not Evening Star. 

-A mobile release is planned, but I'm unsure if that will release the same time as the collection or not.

  3. So, let me guess: Sonic 3 but with the beta/PC music in place of the MJ tracks (Carnival Night, Launch Base, Knuckles' theme, 2P Menu, etc.)? Rumors have said MJ's estate has been the biggest obstacle to another S3K rerelease. I dunno if Brad Buxer's Ice Cap composition is in the way though.

    1. Almost-edit: It has just now occurred to me that Buxer was MJ's musical director, so yeah Ice Cap is totally getting nixed.

  4. Hmm. I think I'll just stick with Sonic 3 A.I.R.

  6. sounds awesome but is it sonic 3 & knuckles or sonic 3 *and* sonic & knuckles cuz the last collection had em separate

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Why not both, like Classic Collection for the DS did? That way you choose whether you want to play them separate (especially 3, since it has quite some changes) or together.

      Delete
  7. I hope it's actually Sonic 3 & Knuckles together (as if you were using the lock-on technology), rather than having them both in the collection but separate games.

    Also I hope we can keep Sonic 3's original music (Carnival Night, Ice Cap, Launch Base, etc.), but I have a feeling they might use the PC music (which I guess we now know was technically the actually original music before MJ was brought on).

    ReplyDelete
  8. As Sony both owns MJ's music and the PlayStation brand. Will Sonic 3 and Knuckles be a PS5 exclusive lol

  9. Nintendo 2021 speculation part 2 please

  10. Great but i really hoper for the Adventure Games

  11. SEGA finally re-releasing 3&K sounds too good to be true.

    ReplyDelete
  12. My guess is that it'll have the songs in the pc collection/early versions of the game.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hmm is tee lopes gonna redo the music for s3k? Could he be redoing all of the music

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ok, let's see what music may have been prohibited by copyright by what Sega, to my knowledge, hasn't used in the past.

    Angel Island: Sonic Mania
    Hydrocity: Sonic Mania
    Marble Garden: UNUSED
    Carnival Night: UNUSED
    Icecap: UNUSED
    Launch Base: UNUSED

    Mushroom Hill: Gens 3DS
    Flying Battery: Mania
    Sandopolis: TSR
    Lava Reef: Mania
    Hidden Palace: Mania
    Sky Sanctuary: Generations
    Death Egg: UNUSED

    Big Arms: Technically Sonic Mania Adventures (Animation)
    Doomsday Zone: UNUSED

    So, out of all of those, I'd say Icecap is probably the song that has prevented them from a remake.

    1. An easier way to tell is by the beta music and seeing which would receive new tracks in the final version. Those would be the following then tracks:
      Carnival Night Zone (Act 1 & 2)
      IceCap Zone (Act 1 & 2)
      Launch Base Zone (Act 1 & 2)
      Knuckles’ Theme
      Act 1 Boss
      Staff Credits
      Completion Screen

      Delete
    2. Do you think they'll use the beta tracks for the remake instead of the final ones?

      Delete
    3. Big Arms was remixed in Gens 3DS too. It's (ironically) the first boss of the game.

      Delete
    4. Both Marble Garden Zone and Death Egg Zone were unlockable songs in Sonic Generations. Also Doomsday Zone was used in an earlier build in Sonic Generations 3DS as the boss theme for the classic era.

      Delete
  15. No new game like Sonic Adventure 3?

    1. Pretty sure Sega's keeping that one especially secret. This is just part of a collection; it's not the 30th anniversary game.

      Delete
    2. its no secret everybody knows its forces 2

      Delete
    3. Nope, its not forces 2, sega doesnt do sequels anymore, besides why would sega make a sequel on a trash game? It makes no logical sense

    4. my friend have u ever heard of something called sarcasm?

  17. Does this only affect S3 stuff or are some of the S&K songs also getting replaced?

    Most people say it's gonna be the Beta music, but I don't think every song has the legal need to be replaced, like the Knuckles theme.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Sonic & Knuckles had NO legal issues with its music. Although SEGA considers it to be the second half of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (which is likely why they don't release it on its own without Sonic 3), legally it is a different game and would require negotiations to add more MJ / BB music. Thus, all music was developed in-house by SEGA

      Delete
    2. Also, for the Sonic 3 Knuckles theme, yes, that's one of the ones that SEGA doesn't own. They do own the one from Sonic & Knuckles, though

      Delete
    3. I think there has been a misunderstanding. I know S&K doesn't have any legal issues.

      What I meant is that, if some of the music is getting replaced by the beta/PC ones, will it be only the songs that didn't reappear/get replaced in S&K, or is EVERYTHING getting replaced by the beta music?

      For example, S&K has a different Knuckles' theme, but so does PC Collection.

      Delete
    4. Sorry I misunderstood. I can’t say for certain, but I’m guessing only the music with legal problems will be replaced with the beta music (although I think for Knuckles theme they won’t use the beta and just use the S&K version)

      Delete
    5. Sorry I misunderstood. I can’t say for certain, but I’m guessing only the music with legal problems will be replaced with the beta music (although I think for Knuckles theme they won’t use the beta and just use the S&K version)

    6. Ok, I just realized something. S3&K has most of the S3 Jingles replaced by the ones for S&K, so those most probably are gonna be left untouched, while the S3 portion (if the Collection comes with both the games fused and separate) would have those changed.

      Delete
  18. So its not Evening Star. So does this mean we wont be getting the long awaited Christian Whitehead version of Sonic 3?

    1. Maybe they are lending the retro engine and recommending users from the Genesis modding community to work along side SEGA

      Delete
    2. I hope so. It woul be nice if we got all the Stealth and Taxman versions in a collection. M2 are good but straight ports are no incentive for me to spend my wedge.

      Delete
  19. Lol the collection just got listed on the same site Colours Ultimate was on some time back

    ReplyDelete
  20. A collection just got leaked by the same website that leaked the sonic colors thing. So maybe Zippo is becoming more trust Worthy but we gotta see.

    ReplyDelete
  21. We had a direct and you were right

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wait did know about sonic rangers that's supposed to be the name of the game an open world

    ReplyDelete
  23. go ahead and sign up for sega-16 to give your leaks on a pro-sega fourm

  24. This will greatly attract players to invest time in NBA 2K22 and go to buy NBA 2K22 MT.
