StH: Scrapnik Island #1

It was a dark and stormy night. Harsh rain from an unnatural storm fell upon Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles “Tails” Prower as they flew above the sea in the Tornado. Lightning strikes, causing the plane to spiral downward into a crash landing on an uncharted island. What Sonic and Tails will soon learn is that the island is no island at all, but the floating remains of the Death Egg. Scrapped, rusted, and malfunctioning Badniks call this place home. Can the friends survive isolation on an island of robots programmed to destroy them?

    Sonic Origins trailer and details revealed

    After a tight-lipped announcement nearly a year ago, and not much of anything else in between, Sega have finally dropped some solid info on Sonic Origins and a fancy new trailer to boot! Details after the jump.

    First announced back in May 2021, Sonic Origins is a compilation of the blue blur’s first four (4.5?) major releases: Sonic 1, Sonic CD, Sonic 2, and Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

    Details on the features are a little scattershot, but here’s what I could gather:

    • A “Classic” mode depicting the games as they originally were, in 4:3 with the lives system intact
    • An “Anniversary” mode with various enhancements, including 16:9, infinite continues(?), selectable characters, and more
    • Other modes such as a boss rush, mission mode, mirror mode (playing the levels backwards), and a story mode that connects all the games into one
    • Newly animated cutscenes bookending each game
    • Coins, which can be obtained through challenges, and are used to unlock museum content such as artwork, music, and never-before-seen development materials
    • Online leaderboards
    • Some sort of 3D depiction of the games’ world maps in menus

    The developer is confirmed to be Headcannon, who co-developed the original mobile remasters of these games and also Sonic Mania. Christian Whitehead is only involved so far as his original work on those remasters being carried over here.

    The game will launch digitally across all major platforms on June 23, 2022, for about $40. DLC with additional challenges, music, and other minor features will also be available. There seems to be no plans for a physical release at this time.
