Although the delay of physical versions of Sonic Colors: Ultimate across EMEA regions remains disappointing, fans will be happy to hear the wait is almost over. SEGA announced that physical editions of Sonic Colors: Ultimate will begin to ship across EMEA regions beginning Oct. 1.
The announcement came Sept. 10 via a Tweet composed by SEGA Europe. The post confirms that in addition to the standard edition of the game, the keyring edition will also launch across selected stores on that date.
In late August, SEGA Europe announced a delayed launch for the new Sonic game across EMEA regions. This includes Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The delay only effects both physical versions of the game. The digital version still released worldwide Sept. 7.
Sonic Colors: Ultimate launched last week to mixed reviews on Metacritic. Many agree that the game is a fun remaster that can be enjoyed by both new and old Sonic fans. However, some argue the lack of new content makes it difficult to justify a purchase of this game as opposed to its original Wii version.
In addition, the game’s launch was bogged down by a barrage of glitches. However, Blind Squirrel Games and SEGA responded to the negative feedback by announcing a Day One patch. They plan to continue applying updates to fix any additional bugs in the future.
