Sega announces Sonic Collection for DS

Four Sonic games and "wealth of extras"

Sega's announced Sonic Classic Collection, a compilation of the blue hedgehog's oldschool outings for Nintendo DS.

The Collection - which is due in 2010 - gathers together the first four Sonic The Hedgehog games; Sonic, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles - and slaps them on the dual-screened handheld.

The ported versions are optimised to take "full advantage of the Nintendo DS", claims Sega, with a new save anywhere feature and a "wealth of extras" including video and collectable pictures.

"The phenomenal successes of the original Sonic games are the pillar of today's Sonic brand recognition" says Sega marketing man, Gary Knight.


"Sonic Classic Collection for DS will allow a new audience to enjoy a timeless collection of games, whilst older Sonic fans can revel in the nostalgia of playing their favourite Sonic titles. It's a perfect amalgamation of heritage and new generation entertainment"

Sonic Classic Collection will hit shops in March 2010.
