In May 2021, the remastered version of Sonic Colors was released for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. However, while Sonic’s colorful adventure was released on Windows, it was a timed exclusive for the Epic Game Store. Unexpectedly, after two years, Sonic Colors: Ultimate has now been released on Steam today.
This remastered version of Sonic Colors adds enhanced visuals, an improvement to framerate, and a freshly recorded soundtrack. The game also offers an ‘Ultimate Cosmetic Pack’ DLC that adds some aesthetic flair for the titular Sonic, and a ‘Music Pack’ that adds three exclusive remixes to the game. The two DLC packs are offered together in the Digital Deluxe Edition. For a limited time introductory offer to celebrate the launch, SEGA are offering 30% off the standard retail price for both Steam editions of Sonic Colors: Ultimate.
In SEGA’s 2010 Sonic adventure, the blue blur finds himself in the middle of a robot-infested amusement park created by Eggman. Sonic and his two-tailed companion, Tails, set out to discover Eggman’s true motives. During their time in this bustling amusement park, Sonic and Tails meet an alien species called “Wisps,” who enhance Sonics powers and help him manoeuvre through bright stages.
Overall, Sonic Colors was received well, and the remastered version of the game made it onto our top five Sonic games list, although only as an honorable mention. Sonic Colors: Ultimate currently has a ‘Mixed’ rating on Steam, with fans seemingly divided by the release.
