  • Retailer Lists Possible Release Date For Sonic Superstars

    Puts Sonic in direct competition with Super Mario. Again.

    Looks like someone let the cat out of the bag. Although the Sonic Central showcase from earlier today announced a Fall 2023 release for Sonic Superstars, a listing on US retailer Target has the game down for a much more specific date: October 17.

    The website prices the game at $59.99, and details the pre-order bonuses announced earlier in the Sonic Central showcase today; a LEGO Eggman Minifig character skin - alongside an acrylic display stand and reversible game cover.

    If you wanted a closer look at that nice and shiny PS5 game cover as well, you can see that for yourself below.

    While October 17 isn't officially confirmed, obviously, it's worth noting that retailers often get these kinds of details ahead of time and every so often they let those legitimate details slip. It would certainly fall into SEGA's previous release window of 'Fall 2023', but that date also puts Superstars in direct competition with Super Mario Bros Wonder, a 2D Mario game that is releasing on Nintendo Switch on October 20.

    No matter how much time has passed, we always somehow come back to that classic 1990s battle, between Sonic and Mario. When will this war ever end?

    That puts it three days before Spider-Man 2. 

    That is some spectacular confidence SEGA has in the game if they don't mind putting it into direct competition with Spider-Man 2 and Mario Wonder.

    Bear in mind Sonic Frontiers went up against God of War last year and it did plenty fine sales-wise.

    Superstars also has one big advantage that it's a multi-platform release while the other two are console exclusives.

    Pretty much. If anything, these "challenges" ending successfully for the Sonic brand have probably been a good sign overall. And with Superstars starting with hype out the gate, it's looking to do swell numbers.
