Well that didn’t take long: just a month after it was rendered impossible to purchase, Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is back…sort of! SEGA revealed today that the game is being made available again via an offline version, which has had all of its online functionality stripped out. This means that features like daily stages, challenges, rankings, badges, flag stamps and titles, and social functions are gone. In addition to that, in-app purchases are also gone, and players can now own the entire game for just $0.99. When the game first launched, players needed to spend $5 to access the whole game.
Given that the game was barely a year and a half old when its online services were closed last year, it’s nice to see that the game will still be available in some form. The offline version is available on both the iOS and Android stores. Anyone who already owns the game can get the offline version for free via an update.
