The launch of Sonic Colors: Ultimate came to fruition with some major setbacks. In the year of the 30th anniversary of the SEGA mascot, the Japanese company was forced to delay the physical editions of the video game due to a logical problem, although it did not change the date of the digital editions. The Japanese reported that the delay would be indefinite, but assured that they would update the information later. Now, the official SEGA Europe Twitter account has indicated that these editions will come out next October 1st.
“We are pleased to confirm that all physical editions of Sonic Colors: Ultimate, which include both standard and keyring editionwill be available for purchase in the EMEA region from October 1, at select stores. We thank our consumers for their understanding and patience during this time. “

Performance issues and patch on the way
Although Sonic Colors: Ultimate is a remastering of the original Wii video game, its release on current machines has not gone smoothly. Some users, especially Nintendo Switch, have raised their voices to complain about errors and graphical glitches, protests that SEGA has already echoed. The Japanese firm has published on social networks that it is working on solutions, although they have clarified that they have detected that certain problems are due to the use of emulators.
“We discovered that some graphical problems were caused by an emulator, which is unfortunately out of our control. We are trying to figure out which bugs are legitimate to be able to reduce the duration of the QA process ”, they pointed out.
Sonic Colors: Ultimate can be purchased on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch and PC, currently only in digital format.
