THE BUZZ: The release of Sega’s reworking of Sonic CD is now upon us, and to celebrate, Sega has unleashed a new trailer—along with a most excellent price for the game.

Originally released for Sega’s under-appreciated Genesis CD attachment—the Sega CD—Sonic CD was a massively expansive game compared to the previous chapters of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Because of that—and its unique yet somewhat obtuse time-travel aspect—the game was extremely popular among some fans, but disliked among others.

Now, Sonic fans everywhere will get the chance to experience Sonic CD again via this new release, one which features a new graphical filter, the ability to unlock Tails (who was never part of the game originally), and the inclusion of both the original Japanese and US soundtracks. And the best part? Sonic CD will only cost you a paltry $5.

Sonic CD hits Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow, and PSN next Tuesday (December 20th).

EGM’s TAKE: Having owned the original release of Sonic CD on the Sega CD, I’m really looking forward to picking up this new reworking of the game and playing through it again. I’m also very, very happy to see both soundtracks included. While I understand the appreciation for the original Japanese music and its particular style, I just love me some Spencer Nilsen.
