Yesterday, the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account announced that the divisive 2021 remaster Sonic Colors: Ultimate has finally made its way to Steam, following the end of the game's Epic exclusively deal.

The remaster of 2010's Sonic Colors, which was a game originally released on the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS, is currently available on Steam's platform with a 30% discount applied to its regular price. This means you can pick it up for £24.49, or £27.99 if you want to purchase the Digital Deluxe version featuring the extra music and cosmetic pack.

Here's the description of the remaster from the game's Steam page:

"Join Sonic in the high-speed adventure of a lifetime in Sonic Colors: Ultimate! Digital Deluxe includes the Ultimate Cosmetic Pack and the Ultimate Music Pack. Color the Universe!

"The evil Dr. Eggman has built a gigantic interstellar amusement park bursting with incredible rides and colorful attractions – but he’s powering it with a captured alien race called “Wisps.” Use Sonic’s lightning speed to free the Wisps and learn the secrets of their amazing powers as you explore six unique colorful worlds, each filled with dangerous enemies and hurdles to overcome."

Back when Sonic Colors: Ultimate first launched across various platforms in 2021, it's important to note that many fans criticized the new version of the game for its various bugs, stability issues, and bizarre lighting changes. There have admittedly been some updates and improvements since then, but judging from some of the early reviews on Steam, it appears that there are still some who believe there is greater work to be done to fix some of the more persistent issues. If you find yourself agreeing with them, you might be better off investing in a cheap copy of the Wii version and trying to get the ISO up and running on the Dolphin emulator instead (with enhancements).
