For SEGA and Sonic Team, a lot of the focus this month has been on Sonic Frontiers. However, there is just a couple of days until the release of Sonic Origins. Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic CD, and Sonic 3 & Knuckles are all included in the collection, but other 2D titles are not.
Takashi Iizuka, head of Sonic Team, was asked about porting other 2D Sonic games in an interview with Nintendo Life. Iizuka replied by saying that “Sonic Origins was focused on the main series of classic games, so there were no plans to include other titles. At this point there aren’t any plans to port other titles, but I’d like to consider it when we see the reaction after Sonic Origins releases”.
