Earlier today SEGA’s Japanese page for the upcoming Sonic Gems Collection was launched providing a host of new information about the game, all of which can finally be set in concrete thanks to it coming directly from an official source.
The site, which is laced with some beautiful new-classic styled artwork provides us with the following. The game will be released in August this year on Playstation 2 and GameCube. Finally, what everyone has been waiting for, the list of games to be included in this compilation.
Sonic the Fighters (Arcade)
Sonic CD (Sega CD)
Sonic R (Sega Saturn)
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Game Gear)
Sonic Spinball (Game Gear)
Sonic and Tails 2 (Game Gear)
Sonic Drift 2 (Game Gear)
Tails Sky Patrol (Game Gear)

The game will also include a gallery of high quality official artwork and some movies, however, which movies in particular is yet to be disclosed.
For a long time fans have wished for the likes of Sonic CD in a compilation, interviews with Yuji Naka have dropped hints in the past of him wishing to re-release this game, but finally it is a reality.
