Submit Your Sonic Generations Music Questions

Sonic Generations E3

There have been many beloved songs in the last 20 years of Sonic Games. Just like Sonic Generations took some of the most beloved levels and remade them in both Classic and Modern formats, Jun Senoue (Crush40, and Musical Director for Sonic), composers Tomoya Ohtani and Kenichi Tokoi, and Alex Makhlouf (Cash Cash) did the same with the music.

You probably have a lot of questions about what it’s like to make music for Sonic, and about the specific tracks in Generations… and here’s your chance to ask them! Post your questions in the comments below, and we’ll select some for these musicians. We’ll post their answers here on the blog in a few weeks for all to enjoy.

Sonic the Hedgehog PC Digital Download Extravaganza

We’ve got 3 exciting Sonic the Hedgehog adventures available for the PC digital download market today!

A few awesome pieces of news for you: first and foremost, Sonic CD has arrived on the PC, for sale now on PC digital download stores! Ushering in this arrival is a special Steam deal: buy Sonic CD and get unique costumes for SEGA and Three Rings’ multiplayer adventure, Spiral Knights!

And! If that wasn’t enough, we do have more: Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I is now also on PC digital download … along with brand-new DLC for Sonic Generations, the fabulous flipper-fingered fun of Casino Night Zone, inspired by Sonic 2.

That was the short version … check below for some choice additional details!

Sonic CD

Sonic CD

We promised you it was on the way, and here it is!

Bringing back the 1993 classic, Sonic CD brought the blue guy to the Sega CD/Mega Drive back in 1993. A beloved and celebrated game playing with all the elements that helped make the original two Sonic games so much fun, Sonic CD wasn’t just a CD version of the original game, but a whole new story set to great levels (with terrific music, naturally). There isn’t much more to say — check out this great game for yourself!

Sonic on Spiral Knights!

To be more accurate, it’s Tails and Metal Sonic in Spiral Knights … Available for a limited time!

Spiral Knights is a Three Rings developed / SEGA published free-to-play adventure … while I could say much, much more about the game, let’s cut to the chase — These items and offer are currently available only until February 1st, so act soon!

Here’s what you can get and how you can get it:

  • ‘Metal Sonic’ costume: inspired by Metal Sonic, this outfit is available for FREE, for a limited time, with any purchase of Sonic CD over Steam. Also available with an energy purchase in-game! This costume item can be worn over your regular, functional armor.
  • ‘Tails’ tails accessory: Who doesn’t want two adorable tails trailing them wherever they go? Show your Foxy pride with this bushy extension — attaches & binds to an existing piece of armor, yours forever and ever! Available in-game in Spiral Knights with an energy purchase — see in-game for details! (Please note that due to certain aerodynamic properties — or lack thereof — of Knights, the Tails accessory will not enable you to actually fly. If you must attempt to fly, please, try taking off from the ground first!)


Also: Here’s a sneak-preview video of the models for the outfit and accessory, as well as a quick look at what the Metal Sonic outfit looks like in-game!

Based on the legendary (and legendarily addictive) Casino Night Zone of Sonic 2, this DLC is now available for Sonic Generations on PC digital download. We sincerely hope you enjoy the chance to revisit this colorful and mesmerizing level!
