Wow, that's way later than I thought. I thought they'd put it out on June 23 for the anniversary.

Still though, the game looks brilliant, so the fact that they're taking their time rather than rushing it out is a good sign.

I keep forgetting I have that statue on pre-order from EB Games. I'm probably more excited for that than anything else, so I can patiently wait for the game.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still hyped though that we have a release date

I get it, take however long you guys need to get it right, but August seems so far away.

That said, I really hope that we end up getting a physical release for the game for Switch, PS4, & XB1.

That would actually be perfect timing. I wanted to buy Fire Emblem Echoes for my birthday at the end of August. Only problem is this might cut my Splatoon 2 time short...

A bit further then I wanted (hoped for a late June/mid July release) but I don't mind. Give the team as much time as needed to make the perfect Classic Sonic experience :).

Heck, this could help get more zones into the game (considering we are still quite a ways away from that August 15th date).

Its a 2D sidescroller and its been in development in Switch since last year, it should have no problem making it on Switch same day as everything else. In fact the Switch version needing to be day-and-date may be the reason for the delay to begin with. Nintendo does have that policy for third party titles, otherwise they are not obgligated to give the game any promotion.

Still a couple of months off, but I'm happy it appears to have a release date. It's still a shame that they're not giving it a physical release, though. It seems like besides mobile F2P stuff, it's only the "classic sonic" stuff that gets the digital only treatment.
