It’s been nearly a year since Sega revealed Sonic Origins, a new compilation that is supposed to come out this year. The company pulled off the veil during the Sonic Central livestream last May, which also included other reveals such as Sonic Colors: Ultimate. However, beyond the announcement and scheduled release window of 2022, the publisher has been silent. But it seems like that’s due to change soon. As reported by Destructoid, Sonic Origins has been rated in Korea.
The Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee recently listed the game. This is about as good as any confirmation we’ve gotten that the game is still due this year. Sonic Origins was rated for “All users,” which doesn’t come as a shock. I doubt Sega was planning on squeezing in anything dubious. Busting badniks is still perfectly safe for the kiddos. We’re not ready to talk about chili dog gluttony just yet.
Sonic Origins is another compilation of the Blue Blur’s finest 16-bit hits. Yes, another. The one special mention, however, is that it will include the superb Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. It’s easily among Sonic’s very best outings, but the game, which once needed two games to unlock, has been oddly neglected in past collections. We’ve often had Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic & Knuckles in compilations before, but not the superior lock-on version. Soon, Super Tails and his cute, glowing birds shall return.

So far, Sega has been content on simply re-releasing the games every handful of years. Based on what we saw in the livestream, it looks to be another collection of emulated games.
Beyond Sonic Origins, Sega still has one more project to detail. Last year’s livestream also revealed the Sonic Colors: Rise of the Wisps animation. It was scheduled to release this summer, and it is getting warmer.
