This post confirms Taxman's involvement in this project, as if it wasn't already blatantly obvious.
Also, the game was announced at a conference related to mobile devices, so knowing how Sonic CD came to be there's little doubt of there not being a release for multiple consoles.
So yeah guys. Time attack mode (definitely with online leaderboards)? Remastered soundtrack?? I can't believe I'm saying this, but... its time to get hyped for a Sonic 1 & 2 port, guys. I am so down.
EDIT: Also there is big following from Retro. I'mma drop the statement here too. Buy these games. Just do it. I know its ports of the most ported Sonic games ever, and I don't know what they have planned fully, but no matter the direction this goes (S3K port OR new classic-styled game), it's Taxman and Stealth. Buy this. And if you already bought the iOS version then update it. You should get it for free.

Hey guys, so I read all these wacky "hidden agenda" comments... where to begin hah.
No, Sonic Retro doesn't know anything that isn't already public knowledge. But it's no secret that I've champion

Ehh. I've gotten these games plenty of times. I really don't think I need another one. The soundtrack I'm excited to hear, but I don't think with what we've been told, I need to go out and buy this.
The greatest Sonic game of all time (and Sonic 1) is getting the remaster treatment finally?
Count my ass in.
I especially can't wait to here dat remastered soundtrack.
You know SEGA, Just let Taxman do all the classic Sonic ports. Can't wait for this(If it comes for consoles i mean).
Dis gun' b gud.
Seriously, this are some... nice news, I guess. The remastered soundtrack and Time Attack mode got my attention ^^ Some might say "another re-re-re-re-release, meh", and I can some what agree, but this time it's going to be a good port for Christ's sake Just like CD, people who never got their hands on the original games, will now play the definitive version. So, take my support, Tax.
If Taxman doesn't fix the fall from a crumbling ledge while charging a Spin Dash feature the WHOLE GAME WILL BE RUINED.
Cool and all but Why the fuck isn't S3&K gettin this treatment first?
I would probably be interested if I haven't already own several versions of these games already.
Sega: "What's a Sonic 3 & Knuckles? Isn't the best Sonic game Sonic 2?" Nobody remembers stupid shit like elemental shields and characters with different abilities.
Good. Very, very good.
Now... where's my Knuckles Chaotix and S3&K ports, SEGA?
Oh my GOD.
I for one welcome our new Taxman overlords.
Oooh, I sincerely hope it lands on consoles. I've never cared for having multiple versions of a game (excluding one to play at home and another for when I'm on the go), but I'm not passing remastered music and clean HD widescreen.
Anyone else think we'll get to play as a certain orange hound in Sonic 1....?
I'm hyped for a re-release of Sonic 1?! Damn, I never thought I would ever hear those words.
If the re-release of Sonic CD gives me any idea of how this game will be, than hell I'm interested.
FIRST I WAS LIKE WHO GIVES A FUCK IT'S SONIC 1 AND 2
THEN I SAW REMASTERED SOUNDTRACK
ALL OF MY MONEY SEGA/TAXMAN/JESUS/SANTA
Holy shit I'd never thought I'd be hyped for a Sonic 1 and 2 post but Taxman you never fail to impress. Probably won't get it unless it's announced for consoles though. All I need now is my new (original) 3d Sonic Game announcement and then I'm in full hype mode.Because as much as I'm hyped.....the "nostalgia sells" approach is still getting kinda tiresome and I wanna see something new.
Just to clarify, this is just Taxman doing this and not anyone on Sonic Team that should be working on the new 3d game now right? Just curious.
TAILS WAS TRYING TO TELL US ALL ALONG!
I honestly wasn't expecting this, not to mention plenty of people wanted this (mostly for Sonic 3&K), but hey I'm good with these as well. 1&2 in delicious widescreen.
For some reason, I feel like I'm only 'more' excited because there's no other Sonic games coming out.
...So what happens to people who already bought the existing versions? Please tell me I'm not going to be forced to pay $3 if I want the update.
I believe Sonic 3&K, Chaotix and so on are not getting the same treatment because Taxman's Retro Engine emulates Sonic CD physics, that are much more closer to Sonic 1 and Sonic 2. So unless Taxman is already working on that, none of these games will be made HD, at least not by his hands. And we know SEGA's cheap as hell, considering their later ports where straight pixels from the consoles.
I still wanna see a full new retro game using Taxman's physics engine and Sonic Team's art/music talents. The guy's almost the new Yuji Naka =P
Seeing as how I only have Sonics 1 and 2 on Mega Collection, and the disc is pretty scratched up, I'm hoping these new ones get a Wii U release soon. It's awkward playing S4 and CD on the iPad.
Those soundtracks though. I'm hyped for the glorious Emerald Hill and Oil Ocean remix. And since SEGA puts all the OSTs on iTunes nowadays...hyped.
Wow, great news.
And I guess I will buy this too. Seeing that this time it's going to be a good port for sure.
Too bad windows phone isn't announced...Well I guess I have to wait a year more to have it.
Well, since I don't have any other digital version (Only the original cartridges ) I'm interested in this (If they really plan a console release)
Wow I salute you sir. Almost every Sonic fan I've heard of has at least 5 copies of Sonic 1 in some form. Little known fact: It's mandatory for Sonic Retro members to sleep in a blanket made of Sonic 1 cartridges.
Actually scratch what I said before..
> Remastered soundtrack
> Time attack
This is not just good..
IT IS GLORIOUS.
I don't know about you guys, but Tails better fucking fly in Sonic 2 Remastered if he knows what's good for him
OH YAY DAY ONE BUY REMASTERED VERSIONS WOO
