SEGA has announced that it will no longer sell Select sound Play digitally after April 20th
The company announced this in a short press release today, without supplying any further paint.
This means that standalone versions of Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD will no longer be available in digital stores after this date.
There are a few exceptions: Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2 will remain available on Nintendo Switch via SEGA Ages, and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will continue to be playable on Nintendo Switch Online + via Sega Genesis.
Granted, you can pick up any games that are delisted via the Sonic Origins compilation. It costs $39.99 / £32.99 on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
However, if you want to buy the games individually, you can do so until May 20th. On PC, you can purchase ports of the games through Steam for $5 each. However, if you’d rather play the beefed up versions, be sure to buy Sonic Origins when it releases on June 23rd.
