Sonic 25th Anniversary CD & DVD Details Revealed

sonic 25th anniversary cd

We recently reported a quietly announced release of an upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary CD. Unfortunately, the CD seems to be only releasing in Japan. The CD will come with a special DVD, however it’s not certain whether the DVD will contain subtitles or possibly have an English language option, but it will most likely be in all Japanese. Choice of tracks is mixed with standard hits and some nice surprises while providing a more up to date selection of tracks spanning over Sonic’s gaming and musical history. Apparently the two discs are color coded. Disc 1 is called the “Blue Edition” and disc 2 is called the “Black Edition”.

Phew! that was a lot of work to get through. This looks like a really exciting boxset and I am pleased to see lots of surprises, especially the Japanese theme to Sonic Boom TV series added to the CD, as well as a nice mixture of tracks that range from a large selection of games.

It would be a shame if the DVD does not feature subtitles, but I plan to review the whole box set when I receive it after the release date and take a look at it all.

Until then, you can pre-order it on places such as CD Japan and Amazon right now.
