What Is Sonic Colors Ultimate?

Sonic Colors was a Wii exclusive that came pretty late in the Wii’s life cycle, which meant some people missed out on it entirely.

The game is largely considered one of the very best 3D Sonic games, as it focused on what people enjoy best about the 3D games in the series. In fact, people have said it’s basically Sonic Unleashed without the Werehog levels that people were not major fans of when it was released.

Sonic Colors Ultimate is an HD remaster of that game, this time with an additional Wisp being added into the mix as well.

The official release date for Sonic Colors Ultimate is September 7 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, but there is also a form of early access associated with one version of the game.

By purchasing Sonic Colors Ultimate Digital Deluxe Edition, you will gain access to the game starting on September 3, giving you four days of extra gameplay compared to those who just get the regular version of the game.

As for the specific time that the game releases, that may depend on the platform and how the marketplaces handle it. While still a remaster, the game is a big release and could go up at midnight on the respective stores. However, it is also possible it might not be released until the morning of for each as well.
