Sonic Collection game listing appears at French retailers

Sonic Collection PS4 PlayStation 4 French retailer listings

2021 is packed with anniversaries for all sorts of gaming franchises. For instance, Sonic the Hedgehog is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and we’re excited to see what’s in store for fans of the Blue Blur. Sega has yet to make any game announcements (though the now-discounted encyclopedia is coming), but listings from various French retailers via Tails Channel may have leaked a coming collection. Two of these retailers are Sogamely and ReplayMultimedia, which have put up a page for a Sonic Collection on PlayStation 4. There are currently no listings for other platforms, and no information is given about the collection itself.

Sonic Collection leaked

If the leaks are true, this will only be the latest of several collections Sonic games have received over the years. For example, during the GameCube era, there was Sonic Gems Collection, which, in my opinion, set the standard for how a video game compilation should be presented. It will be interesting to see what games are actually included in this package, but it’s always nice to have yet another way to play Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

There is a recent rumor that Sonic the Hedgehog 3 will finally see re-release in some form this year. Additionally, last month saw indication that a potential remaster of 2010’s Sonic Colors may be in development. Sega will likely provide some insight in June, as the company has committed to both E3 2021 and Summer Game Fest. What would you like to see in a new Sonic Collection?
