Sonic Origins has arrived on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch, allowing a large number of players to experience the classic 2D Sonic games from the 90s in a newly polished edition on today’s systems. All the games in the Sonic Origins compilation are authentic to their original counterparts from the Mega Drive and Genesis days, with added wide-screen support and a few other quality-of-life improvements.
Story Mode in Sonic Origins combines all four (or five if you count the Sonic & Knuckles levels) into one cohesive experience that is tied together through brand-new animated cutscenes. These animations are realized extremely beautifully with an art style reminiscent of early SEGA works from the 90s. If we exclude Sonic CD – which already had a fully animated intro and outro in 1993, maximally compressed and stuck somehow on a Compact Disc, which was a small miracle for that time – all animations are completely new and the originals from Sonic CD are now remastered and upscaled. Here are all Sonic Origins cutscenes in order.
