  • Sonic Origins Plus Includes Mega Drive Box Art and a Coaster in Japan

    As the art indicates, this is an action game for 1-2 players.

    Though Sonic Origins Plus has been announced for all major platforms and regions, buyers in Japan have a little extra incentive for the physical copy. The game’s Japanese webpage notes that it includes reversible box art, a rubber coaster, and some sort of mysterious QR code as first-run bonuses.


    The reversible Mega Drive-inspired art brings back inspiration from Sonic’s Japanese box art from the original Mega Drive releases (Sonic Mania Plus had a similar deal) with each character holding their most-associated piece of SEGA hardware: Sonic with a Mega Drive Mk. 1, Knuckles showing off his lock-on technology, Tails lugging his massive Miles Electric computer Game Gear, and Amy not really knowing how to hold a CD. There are other small details in the art, like the classic Mega Drive player and genre icons, and a good ol’ “WelcomeToTheNextLevel” hidden in the bar code.


    As a reminder, physical fans in other regions can also get a 16-bit inspired reversible cover based on the classic Sonic 2 checkerboard template (though with Sonic Mania Plus, European buyers got their own regional variant, so UK buyers might not get the stylish and far superior Genesis logo, I direct towards our UK-based site owner).

    The Sonic Stadium may link to retailers and earn a small commission on purchases made from users who click those links. These links will only appear in articles related to the product, in an unobtrusive manner, and do not influence our editorial decisions in any way. All proceeds will go to supporting our community and continued coverage of Sonic the Hedgehog. Thank you in advance for your kind support!
