Sonic CD Released Tomorrow

Sonic is back once again on the Xbox 360 Live Arcade and Playstation Network from tomorrow, with a re-release of Sonic CD.

Presented as a downloadable game, Sonic CD showcases retro Sonic in one of his best adventures. Originally a 1993 Sonic title for the Sega Mega-CD, Sonic CD is on a mission to retrieve time zones from his arch-nemesis Dr. Robotnik in order to save Little Planet. Along the way, Sonic will have to contend with Metal Sonic, rescue pink hedgehog Amy Rose, collect the usual golden rings, and fight plenty of enemies.

Sonic CD is available to download from tomorrow (the 14th December) for 400 Microsoft points on the Xbox 360 or £3.23 on the Playstation Network. Check out the trailer below to get a taste of what to expect from tomorrow.


  1. Any word on which version of the intro music they're going with for this release (English/Japanese)? The option to select either would be nice.

    Also, for those looking for a physical copy of this game, you don't need a SegaCD. Sega put this on the Sonic Gems Collection for GameCube (and PS2 for EU/JP), which makes it playable on a backwards-compatible Wii.

  2. AJ Johnson: No idea what music is going to be used to be honest. Hopefully someone will post up a YouTube "Let's Play" soon, which will solve that question! :)

    I also own this on the Gamecube in that Sonic collection, which is great! I believe this version of Sonic CD is a little remastered, and also it includes achievements, so it's got a few more bonuses than buying an older copy, if that sort of thing appeals to you.

  3. Just checked... Sonic CD will have both versions of the music!

    I have the GameCube collection as well, so I'll probably give the new release a pass. I do have a Sega CD however, and would be willing to pick up a copy in the original format if I come across one at a reasonable price.
