After years of speculation and evidence scouting, the co-creator of Sonic the Hedgehog, Yuji Naka, has without a doubt confirmed that Michael Jackson was involved in composing music for Sonic 3. The news comes from a tweet in which Naka expressed confusion as to why the music from Jackson was replaced in the recent release of Sonic Origins. It looks like fans can finally put this rumor to rest.

No he’s not confirming anything actually. He’s probably talking about the "Sonic Official" Tiktok account that used Billy Jean from Michael Jackson.

Even so, it's still confirmation. He's saying it's weird that Sonic Origins had different music in Sonic 3 even though Sega is willing to use a Michael Jackson song for a marketing video. Otherwise those two things would have no correlation.

That's neither funny nor true.

Pretty sure it was proven that Michael Jackson didn't do anything to any kids and that the people who sued him for such were just trying to get money out of him

Correct. He's referring to their use of MJ's music in a TikTok video. However, why remark the change of Sonic 3's music with them using a Jackson song in a different form of media? He clearly knew what he was posting while dancing around the real answer to a year long question. Again. Like so many others before. :D
