Looking great, Sonic!

GN Version 5.0

Few things match the level of nostalgia I feel when I see the Sonic CD intro. Even in its original windowed form, I was blown away by a Sonic game starting with an animated feature. It was choppy, blocky, and tiny, but it was damn awesome.

While I'm still more than happy to watch the original CD intro, I can now enjoy a revamped version that matches my rose-tinted glasses memories. Users Tanks and Quazza on the Sonic Retro forums used AI-technology to upscale and clean up the original intro, giving us a crystal-clear 720 version to enjoy. The intro certainly looks better than ever, so I'd say the work was well worth it!
