‘Sonic: Colors’ gets a well-deserved remaster: Roll through what we know
The fastest thing alive is getting another game remastered. The game originally made for Nintendo Wii by Sega, Sonic: Colors is getting an update for new consoles.
According to Polygon, Sonic: Colors will be the same game you know & love, but it will contain new game modes, refined, controls, upscaled visuals that you can already see in the trailer, and more!
So get ready to go fast and roll through our rings of knowledge about the Sonic: Colors remaster.
Sonic: Colors dropped in 2010 to critical & gamer fanfare with an interesting storyline. Sonic travels to space to visit Dr. Eggman/Dr. Robotnik’s amusement park. However, Sonic’s not there on vacation! The nefarious Dr. Robotnik has enslaved the planet to create his version of Disney World, so Sonic has to save the enslaved aliens known as “wisps”.
To save the day, Sonic does the usual: rolls into a ball, collects rings, and speeds through obstacle courses. However, the wisps he saves endow him with different powers, including turning into a fireball, a wall-climbing spike ball, a hovercraft, and more! Amid a visually stunning backdrop, these features will make you want to play Sonic: Colors over & over again.

Naturally, the Sonic fandom is going nuts over the re-release of Sonic: Colors and we’ve got the best reactions to its return to consoles. Of course, the reactions are a mixed bag, but we think you’ll get a kick out of em anyway!

Of all the Sonic reboots & rehashes coming to a console near you, Colors is the only Sonic game worth rebooting.

What do you mean it’s an Epic Games exclusive release? Read the fine print!
Everyone keeps complaining that it's on the epic games store

This is what y'all wanted lol

Wasn’t a Sonic: Colors what we wanted anyway? Why is it a big deal that it’s only on Epic Games?
Because I only play on Xbox. Whats the point of making a pre-order if 80% of your consumers cant get it?

Oh, that’s why. Apparently, Xbox players are going to have to wait and get shut out of the pre-order because the store’s a pain or something (apparently, a bunch of people on Twitter are CAPS-LOCKS shouting at us that it’s the worst platform in the history of platforms right now)? We dunno 🤷

Wait, the colors are washed out??? Then why is it called Sonic: Colors?
We're still waiting on re-releases of so many games why do you skip over them all and do colors?
Heroes and Sonic Riders are already on PC but it's disc only.. BRING THEM TO STEAM!
Sonic Riders Zero Gravity is stuck on wii and ps2.
Sonic Unleashed is still only wii ps3 and 360
