Sonic Colors: Ultimate patch

Sonic Colors: Ultimate gets some much-needed quality of life improvements and a pack of free content.

It’s been an up and down year for remakes. The recent release of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was a disaster (to put it mildly), and some fans aren’t keen on the lick of paint given to Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Sonic Colors: Ultimate – the recent update of Sega’s moderately-loved 2010 Wii game – is another example. Some players didn’t dig the revamped visuals, and absolutely no players enjoyed the frequent bugs, glitches, and performance problems. The Nintendo Switch edition was particularly rough.


Thankfully, those issues continue to be fixed. The game’s latest update features another round of visual improvements, bug fixes, and gameplay tweaks. The patch also includes a Celebration Pack of free customisable content for Sonic.

The update and Celebration Pack is available to download now on all platforms.
