Not only is Spain getting different boxart (here’s the U.S. version), it’s also getting a special edition! The special edition of Sonic Classic Collection will come in a tin case. In addition to the game, players will receive 5 illustrations (boxart for Sonic 3, Sonic Chaos and a pair of Sonic Screen Saver images) and a classic Sonic figurine. If only the Sonic on the boxart could follow suit.
Will this super cool package come to the rest of Europe and/or the U.S.? Who knows.
UPDATE: EB Games AU has put up a listing for the limited edition now (in English, too). Their listing also includes an “O ring sleeve:”
- Limited Edition Tin
- O-ring sleeve
- 5 x postcard – exclusive imagery
- 2D styled – 3D Classic Sonic Figurine
- Game Case
The price that EB Games lists is $58. Fiddy-8 Aussie Bucks.

UPDATE 2: AAUK has confirmed at the Sonic City Blognik that this limited edition of Sonic Classic Collection will ONLY be for Spain and Australia.
Why those two countries? I don’t know. It is what it is.
