In the wee hours of the morning, the official Sonic the Hedgehog social media account woke up and went “hey, let’s talk about Sonic Origins.” After eleven months of near radio silence, they posted a trailer complete with Hyper Potions music, the English and Japanese websites went live, and everyone suddenly woke up to talk about it.
Original April 18th: It’s been just short of 11 months since we first learned of Sonic Origins in 2021’s Sonic Central broadcast, and since then news has been incredibly sparse. While there’s been no official announcement of further details just yet, there have been a couple of quick developments to kick this week off. Last night it was discovered that the game had been given a ratings classification in South Korea. While there isn’t much to gleam from the rating itself, generally such classifications in the past have surfaced online not long before a game’s planned release.
