In South Korea, a listing for a game named Sonic Origins Plus has emerged, implying that an enhanced edition is on the way and that it may feature additional classic Sonic the Hedgehog titles. Because Sonic Origins only contained a handful of games, many iconic entries in the series were overlooked.
Sonic Origins Plus is currently listed on the South Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee website (as discovered by Gematsu), yet no platforms or details about its content are provided. Because it has been graded, it must be near to release, so fans should expect to hear more about it shortly.
Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD, and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles were the only games included in Sonic Origins. This elicited a poor fan reaction, since the collection lacked enough titles to justify its price tag, despite Sonic Origins’ addition of new modes.
If Sonic Origins Plus does include more games, there are lots of contenders, including Knuckles Chaotix, Sonic Blast, Sonic 3D Blast, Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, and Sonic games for the Game Gear and Master System. The question is if Sega will make the extra effort to incorporate them, even though these titles aren’t accessible on contemporary systems, given how barren the standard edition of Sonic Origins was.
Sonic Origins Plus is a nod to Sonic Mania Plus, a version of the game that includes all DLC material, such as playable versions of Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel. Unfortunately, this isn’t a good indication because it might suggest that Sonic Origins Plus only includes the DLC from the main game, plus a few more bells and whistles, rather of any additional old Sonic games.
