Today, Sonic Central held a stream that revealed a number of new projects featuring none other than Sonic the Hedgehog. These announcements were all centered around the 30th anniversary celebration of the franchise. Let's take a quick look at what was announced during today's short stream.

First up, a very brief teaser was shown off for an entirely new Sonic game. This game is being worked on by Sonic Team and revealed that it will be released in 2022 for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Beyond that, nothing else was really revealed for this one.

Next, a remaster of Sonic Colors was announced. This one is called Sonic Colors: Ultimate and will be released on the PS4, XB1, Switch, and PC via the Epic Games Store on September 7. This is a remaster of the 2010 Wii title. The remaster will obviously include enhanced visuals along with some new gameplay features and a new mode called Rival Rush.
