Sonic Colors: Ultimate Physical Editions Delayed In Europe, The Middle East, And Africa

Sega has announced the physical edition of Sonic Colors: Ultimate has been delayed. Digital copies will still launch as planned.

While it hasn't gone as all out as The Pokemon Company has for its own anniversary, Sega has been doing quite a lot to celebrate Sonic turning 30. One of the biggest announcements made during a Sonic Central earlier this year was the reveal that Sonic Colors is getting the remaster treatment. Sonic Colors: Ultimate will launch worldwide on September 7, 2021.

Well, it will for most people. Sega issued a statement today revealing that the physical edition of the game has been delayed in certain parts of the world. “Due to unforeseen logistical issues, all physical editions of Sonic Colors: Ultimate, which include both the standard and keyring edition, will be delayed across all EMEA markets,” the statement reads. EMEA includes Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

North and South America appear to be unaffected by whatever logistical issues have caused the delay, as well as Australia and New Zealand which is highlighted in the statement despite not being a part of EMEA. Sega also clarifies that the digital version of the game will still launch on September 7 across all platforms and in all regions.

The delay to physical copies only suggests the problem is to do with shipping, production, or a combination of the two. Although the world continues to get back to normal following the pandemic, the knock-on effect from everything coming to a standstill across various industries for weeks and even months at a time is still being felt. Sega also hasn't revealed when players in the delayed regions will be able to finally get their hands on physical copies of Sonic Colors: Ultimate.

Sonic Colors: Ultimate isn't the only new Sonic game slated for launch over the course of the next year. Sonic Origins will repackage some of the very first games in the series, bringing them to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S for the very first time. There's also an entirely new Sonic game to look forward to. It was teased at the very end of the Sonic Central but doesn't even have a name yet. Well, at least not one that has been made public.
