Lace up your sneakers and get ready to spin dash as we take a look at all the information we have on the upcoming Sonic Superstars game!

Sonic titles never fail to disappoint, especially when they’re based on the winning formula that all the classic Sonic games have been based on over the years.

With crisp new visuals, stunning levels, and all the fast-paced thrills and spills that we’ve come to know from the blue blur’s career, Sonic’s new outing is set to be a brilliant game from start to finish.

But when is it releasing, and what platforms is it going to be available on?

Find out all this and more below!

Sonic Superstars Gameplay

Just take a look at that still above! These levels look so familiar but also so fresh and new at the same time.

It’s that classic Sonic feel, but not as you know it.

After the success of Sonic Frontiers, it’s a bold move for Sega to go back to a side-scrolling Sonic game. But, just like many people still prefer the classic Zelda games like Ocarina of Time, Sonic fans will always flock to a side-scrolling Sonic title like Eggman to a pile of Chaos Emeralds.

Speaking of Chaos Emeralds, they have given Sonic and his pals some epic new abilities to use in this new Sonic game.

In a touch of Link’s Zora Armour in BotW, players can now swim up waterfalls to reach platforms higher up.

They can also change form too; we’re big fans of the 8-bit squids that we’ve seen flying around the screen in the official trailer.

And you can check out the official trailer below!

What Platforms Will Sonic Superstars Be Available On?

Sonic Superstars is going to be available on all major platforms including Steam, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, and PS4.

It’s currently only available to pre-order for Switch, Series X, PS5, and PS4, and you can find our how to pre-order the game further down in this article.

Who Are The Playable Characters In Sonic Superstars?

This new Sonic adventure allows players to take Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose into battle against Dr Eggman and a strange new enemy who is yet to be revealed.

Amy Rose returns with her trusty hammer, Knuckles has his fists, and Tails can hover as always.

The great bit about having four characters is that four of you can play the game at once via local co-op.

Yes; couch co-op is back, folks! This puts Sonic Superstars up there with Super Mario 3D World in my opinion, especially with all of the new powers that the gang can utilise!

When Is the Sonic Superstars Release Date?

According to Amazon, the Sonic Superstars release date is December 31st 2023.

I’ve just checked shipping to Retro Dodo Towers and it says I’ll have the game by January 2nd.

This all seems pretty legit, until you go back to remember the whole Metroid Prime 4 Release Date debacle from a couple of years ago.

Amazon told me I would be getting my copy of Metroid Prime 4 on January 2nd 2023, and we all know how that went down!

In this case, however, we’re inclined to believe the date. Sega are usually pretty on the ball with their Sonic release dates these days, and they know that gamers go crazy for the blue blur.

I think the backlash would be far more catastrophic if Sonic never showed up than it has been at the lack of Metroid Prime 4 in our lives.

Where Can I Order Sonic Superstars From?

You can pre-order Sonic Superstars for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch on Amazon.

Why Is Sonic So Famous?

Sonic is Sega’s Mascot and one of the most iconic video game characters of all time.

There are 32 titles in the main Sonic canon, with the first title dropping all the way back in 1991!

Can I Play Sonic Superstars On Xbox?

Sonic Superstars will be available to buy or download on Xbox One and Xbox Series X.

Sega and Microsoft are still on good terms, so Sonic will definitely be appearing on the Xbox.

Is Sonic Superstars In 2D?

Sonic Superstars is primally 2D style with 3D elements throughout.

I say ‘2D style’ because it’s far from the 8-bit days of old. Think more Metroid Dread than Rocket Knight Adventures and you’ll get the idea.

When Is Sonic Superstars Releasing?

Sonic Superstars is reportedly releasing on December 31st, 2023.
