Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia Deluxe Edition preorder open

Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia Deluxe Edition preorder Sega Dark Horse Books

It’s a great time to be a Sonic fan, as the Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia Deluxe Edition (as well as the standard version) is now available for preorder on Amazon. As previously reported, this tome from Dark Horse Books and Sega dives into the “extensive lore and exhaustive detail of each game in Sonic’s ever-expanding universe,” from Sega Genesis to present. Final page count is uncertain, as the standard version currently lists 288 pages while the deluxe edition lists 256, but the bottom line is that you can expect it to be comprehensive.

The Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia Deluxe Edition in particular will include an exclusive mosaic cover, a slipcase with “gold foil ‘ring’ treatment,” and a “folio housing two archival gallery prints of Sonic and Dr. Eggman.” You can see those things in the image above, though it comes with the disclaimer that the final packaging is subject to change. This deluxe edition is currently retailing for $79.99, (Update: It is now currently discounted to $56.37.) whereas the standard edition is retailing for $49.99 but is at the time of writing discounted to $42.49 on Amazon. (Update: It is now currently discounted to $29.99.)

If you’re a super fan, maybe you just want to splurge and preorder that Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia Deluxe Edition. But if you’re an economical super fan, preordering the standard edition may be good enough.
