With the Celebration Update, you’ll be able to listen to the soundtrack as Sega originally intended.
Remasters and remakes are big business right now. However, when one hits the market, you can guarantee that those who loved the original game will go through it with a fine comb. While the whole point of a remaster is that the game should be different from the original, you can guarantee that they will let the developers know if dedicated fans see any element of it as less than compared to the OG game it is based on .
That was the case several times this year. Sonic Colors: Ultimate was launched back in September, one of many activities that Sega has been doing to mark the 30th anniversary of the blue blur. While it wasn’t the disaster that GTA: The Trilogy was a few months later, the Sonic Colors remake wasn’t exactly hailed as a huge hit by gamers.
One of the biggest nitpicks was the changed soundtrack. While Sonic games have been hit and miss for the past two decades or more, those responsible for the game’s soundtracks almost always knock out of the park. Colors was no exception, which is why the decision to change the original game for Ultimate was an odd one.
Colors 3.0 patch, which Sega dubbed the Celebration update, adds a toggle that allows you to revert to the original game’s soundtrack. It also adds some additional customizable content, including burst shoes, burst gloves, fireworks burst, and fireworks aura. You can also toggle Tails navigation on and off once you’ve applied the update, as well as toggle the blur boost effect in full screen mode and improve the visibility of your cyan wisp finish line.
As great as it is to play a Sonic Colors remake in 2021, it currently ranks pretty low on the big Sonic news out there on the airwaves. Fans of the world’s most famous hedgehog may have been the biggest winners after last week’s Game Awards. Not only was it revealed to Sonic Frontiers, but the very first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 debuted, giving everyone their first look at live-action Knuckles and his unintentionally sexy voice.
