That’s right; twenty four years after the release of the Sonic OVA, a full version has finally been found!
For a long time it was thought that the version already widely available would be the most we’d hear of the song. The full version you can hear in the film was never released officially. One eagle-eyed fan spotted something within the film lyrics that got them curious, but they never expected what would result;
illuminor decided to get to the bottom of it and reached out to one of the people who was involved in creating of Sonic OVA. We will not disclose the identity of this person not to cause them any troubles. The original plan of illuminor was to ask for the song’s lyrics, but his interlocutor exceeded all expectations and just sent the whole track instead of the plain text.
Check out the video above to listen to it in full glory, and read the full story of how it even managed to see the light of day. I know this is a tune I’ll be jamming to for a long time to come.
All credit for the discovery goes to Illuminor, who went above and beyond to dig up this precious piece of musical history for everyone to hear!
