Sonic Colors: Ultimate is not even officially out yet, but that VGC reports, Sega is is already posting statements about the cart state that it is in. While the game’s full release is tomorrow, pre-orders was able to get the game last Friday, and apparently have not had a very good time with the remastered Wii game. So much so that the blue hedgehog’s official social media leader is trying to put out fires.
“Hi all!” Katie Chrzanowski greeted her followers this weekend. She continued in the same way glowing tone, “Appreciate all your feedback Sonic Colors: Ultimate, and the teams are listening and evaluating for an upcoming update. Thank you all for your patience as we dig into this! ”
But because it’s 2021 and everything’s terrible, it’s not as simple as that. As Chrzanowski goes on to say that not all reports and videos of errors are completely … genuine. It seems quite a few that are based on people playing an “emulated” version of the game, ie not on official Nintendo hardware. “Trying to figure out which errors are legitimate can really slow down the QA process,” Sonics PA continued, pointing out that emulated (pirated) versions of the barely released game are not really in Sega’s bug fixes.
On the other hand, there is wrong and wrong, and many of the issues raised are real. It is demonstrated by GameXplain, who put together a video of the mistakes they encountered while playing on a real switch:
Other outlets have confirmed the errors, including Nintendo World Report, which connected (and reproduced) this video, which I will not post because of the extreme likelihood that the content will cause seizures. Which is not so good for Sega.
The game is coming tomorrow on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Switch, so even though seizure-causing bugs seem to require quite a bit of jiggery-pokery to cause, they have with epilpsy may want to hold on until the note is rolled out.
