Fellow fans, it's that time of year again - it appears a number of retailers have broken the street date of Sonic Superstars, with some eager gamers getting a hold of copies ahead of its official October 17 launch.
The above images were posted to social media by user "One2Switcheroo", who obtained a copy of the Nintendo Switch version. "Yes, it’s the real deal. No, Im not gonna dump it. If you visit your local mom and pop shop, you might get lucky," they wrote.
This isn't the first time that a Sonic game (or a SEGA game, for that matter) has broken street date. While it's nice for some lucky fans to get their hands on a copy of the game early, it's depressing for the rest of the community that they won't have a chance to join in the launch fun - and worse, even potentially get major sections of the game spoiled for them.
As always, please be careful about the content you may see on social media and other platforms between now and October 17. If you're wanting a total blackout from the Sonic Superstars chat, stay with us at the Sonic Stadium - while there will no doubt be spoiler discussions about the game flying around, our community will make sure that anything that might be considered a spoiler will be encased in spoiler tags...
... just like this...
... so you won't get anything ruined.
