Sonic Origins PS5 Gameplay Preview. We take a closer look at Sonic Origins on the PlayStation 5. Previewing Sonic Origins PS5 Gameplay, graphics, mechanics and story. Is Sonic Origins on the PS5 worth playing and a worthy addition to the PlayStation line up?

It’s a Saturday morning in the early ‘90s. You’ve done all of your homework and chores, and you have the day to do whatever you’d like. After scarfing down a bowl of sugary cereal in front of the living room TV, you dash over to the Sega Genesis. You pick up your Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge, blow into the connectors, and press it into the console with a satisfying “thunk”. Hours pass as fast as the Blue Blur makes his way through Green Hill Zone, and you’ve never been happier.

And then you wake up. It’s 2022, and it’s been nearly 30 years since those halcyon days before work, stress, bills, and maybe even a family. Don’t let the creeping sadness consume you, there is a way to feel like that carefree child coming soon! SEGA has announced Sonic Origins, a collection of 4 original Sonic games in a single package, remastered and available on just about everything. You’ll still have all of your adult obligations, but at least you can sit down with a good Sonic game again.

Relive Classic Sonic

Sonic Origins packs Sonic the Hedgehog,  Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic CD into a single package. Each one has undergone an extensive digital remastering process to bring them into the modern age for current consoles. Crisp visuals as well as new features, modes, and content are also included. There are even brand-new Sonic animations at the beginning and end of each game!

If you want to experience these games exactly how they were back in the day, there is a Classic Mode that will present the games in their original 4:3 aspect ratio, as well as play with the original gameplay style of finite lives and game over screens. This is in addition to the Anniversary Mode, which was made to fit modern screens and plays with infinite lives so there’s no game over screen to slow you down. Gotta go fast!

Unlockables Galore

In the Museum portion of Sonic Origins, you can complete missions that will earn you coins to unlock new content exclusive to this remaster package. That means new challenges, new Special Stages, and much more for die-hard Sonic fans to enjoy. 

Once you’ve completed a run in each of the games, you will also unlock a Mirror Mode playthrough for each title. This will be the ultimate test of your Sonic skills as each stage plays through in reverse, pushing your brain and decades’ worth of muscle memory to the limit. 


With the Sonic movies being so popular with the younger generation, there is no doubt that Sonic Origins will be enjoyed by children all over the world. However, those of us who were there at the beginning know who this collection is really for. Don’t miss Sonic Origins when it zooms to Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox consoles, and PC on June 23rd, just in time for the series’ 31st anniversary!
