When Sonic Colours Ultimate launched in September of this year it was met with reports of plenty of game crashing and dangerous glitches across all platforms, but the Nintendo Switch was worse off than the others. At that time it was reported that the team were listening and preparing patch work, with this recent 2.6 update being one of them.

In our review of Sonic Colours: Ultimate, we said:

“When Sonic Colors: Ultimate feels like a Sonic game, it’s tremendously satisfying. When it deviates from the familiar pattern, it all feels a bit too slow and forced, shoving in too many ideas to master any of them.”

It’s been a busy time for the blue blur, with a trailer for his new film, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 debuting at The Game Awards alongside the first footage of Sonic Frontiers. 

Sonic Colours: Ultimate is available on Nintendo SwitchPlayStation 4, and Xbox One.


In other news, Dontnod Entertainment has announced its first game as a third-party publisher – Gerda: A Flame in Winter, a narrative game launching in 2022.
