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.
Sonic Colors: Ultimate – December 2021 Update
- New free customisable content for Sonic, including:
- Burst Shoes
- Burst Gloves
- Fireworks Boost
- Fireworks Aura
Quality of Life Updates
- Ultimate mix / Original music soundtrack toggle
- Full screen boost blur effect on/off toggle
- Tails navigation on/off toggle
- Full screen movie playback from the options satellite

- Updates to specific enemy attack speeds
- Improved Green Hover Wisp ring dash functionality
- Improved visibility of Big Chaser attack visual effects (for Nintendo Switch specifically)
- Various bug fixes throughout the game
Sonic Colors: Ultimate is available in digital and physical formats on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. On PC, it’s available exclusively through the Epic Games Store.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
