Fan-favorite Sonic game gets stealth release on Steam

Steam users already have access to some great Sonic the Hedgehog games, but that number grew this week with the release of Sonic Colors: Ultimate! Without any prior warning, Sega added the game to the platform and only notified users afterwards Sonic Colors: Ultimate had already been made available. The remaster was released in September 2021 on other platforms, including Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Steam users had to watch with envy, but Sega has now made up for that glaring omission. The title normally costs $39.99, but Sonic Colors: Ultimate has an introductory price of $27.99. The discount is valid until February 13.

Sega’s announcement tweet is embedded below. Sonic Colors: Ultimate can be found on Steam here.

sonic colors debuted in 2010 on the Nintendo Wii. The game was released at a time when the Sonic franchise was struggling and quickly became a fan favorite. Sega came out in 2021 Sonic Colors: Ultimate, a remastered version of the original title. The remaster contained a number of improvements including improved visuals, improved performance and more. In a change that should be welcome to younger players, Ultimate also offers unlimited progress, rewarding players who get higher ranks as opposed to punishing those who struggle with the stages of the game.

In 2021 I reviewed the PlayStation 4 version of Sonic Colors: Ultimate, giving the game a score of 4 out of 5. I found the PS4 version offered great graphics and gameplay, but found that the cutscenes didn’t seem to offer the same visual upgrade as the rest of the game. In a 2022 piece detailing the best Sonic games offered on current video game platforms, I mentioned Sonic Colors: Ultimate in addition to classics such as Sonic mania And Sonic CD. It is worth noting that the list was published several months before the release of Sonic Limitsbut readers who want to see what other games are on the list can find them here.
