Sonic Superstars announced for Nintendo Switch

New thrills. Classic feels.

The Sonic machine keeps rolling along, and now it’s rolling in a more familiar way. SEGA today announced that Sonic Superstars—a new adventure in the popular series—will be available for PC and consoles this fall with the promise to bring “…a new standard of play to classic high-speed 2D Sonic platforming.”

And judging from the trailer, it looks like that promise will be fulfilled.

Sonic and his friends’ journey starts on the beautiful North Star Islands, a mystical place offering never-before-seen environments, as well as a mysterious story waiting to unfold. Enormous creatures, exhilarating adventures, and evil plans from Dr. Eggman await Sonic and his friends, who can now obtain brand-new abilities known as the Emerald Powers when Chaos Emeralds are collected.

Key features of the game include:

  • 2D classic Sonic platforming reimagined for current-generation platforms with new zones, music, gameplay, and modern UHD visuals only possible with 3D graphics. Sonic’s movements, physics, and controls feel familiar and appeal to recent and legacy fans alike.
    The option to play as fan favorites—Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy Rose—as they take on Dr. Eggman, old nemesis Fang, and their nefarious schemes. Sonic designer Naoto Ohshima is also back with a new character that Sonic, and his friends will have to face.
  • The power of the seven Chaos Emeralds to unlock various new abilities like creating clones of yourself, climbing waterfalls, powering up, and more.
  • Local 4-player co-op, so fans can play solo or cooperatively with friends through the entire campaign.

Sonic Superstars is currently planned for release digitally and physically in fall 2023 fort $59.99. Details regarding purchase packages and DLC will be revealed at a later date. In the meantime, you can learn more at
