Sega is removing several classic Sonic games in May ahead of the release of Sonic Origins

Prior to the release of Sonic Origins on June 23, 2022, Sega will delist currently available digital versions of each game included in the collection, which includes the original Sonic the Hedgehog. This removal is coming much sooner than the new version, so it’s best to buy them now if you want them.

A total of four games will be removed from sale starting May 20: Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD. Sega specifically cited the release of Sonic Origins as the reason for the removal of current digital versions of each game.
