It was only an hour ago when we reported on information leaking for Sonic Origins, an upcoming remastered collection of the original Sonic the Hedgehog titles. Well, speak of the devil (or hedgehog, if you will), as SEGA has now announced the release date, alongside a brand new, beautifully animated, trailer.

Launching for all platforms, including Nintendo Switch, on June 23rd, Sonic Origins will be available as a Standard or Digital Deluxe Edition, with three different optional DLC packs set to be released.

Make sure to watch the nostalgia-ridden and hype-inducing trailer above and check out all the latest details, including info on the various editions and DLC packs, below.

Relive the classic collected adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic CD in the newly remastered Sonic Origins! From the iconic Green Hill Zone to the treacherous Death Egg Robot, you’ll speed down memory lane to thwart the sinister plans of Doctor Robotnik in polished high definition! This latest version includes new areas to explore, additional animations, and a brand new Anniversary mode!

Classic Re-defined - Explore the classic Sonic titles in high-resolution, with all-new opening and ending animations for each title!

New Unlockables - Complete various missions to collect coins to unlock new content, challenges, and Special Stages through the Museum.

This is a lot more than I wanted to pay :/. DLC for a rather cheap set of old games seems particularly sucky too.
