Sonic Origins Patch fixes Tails’ annoying jumps in Sonic 2 and various other bugs

When Sonic Origins hit consoles and PC in June, it offered a four-pack of classic Sonic the Hedgehog games from the ’90s. While the bundle was praised for bringing Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD to modern platforms, with various game enhancements and other extras, it was also heavily criticized. Various bugs, mislabeled titles in the in-game museum, and overall stability (especially in the PC version) frustrate the player base waiting for Sega to fix the issue. This week, Sega released a long-awaited patch that addresses these issues and more, hopefully stabilizing compilations and making the overall experience more enjoyable.

Two of the biggest issues addressed by this patch include fixes for game crashes and one of the most annoying bugs of the year: tails falling behind in Sonic 2 and kept jumping instead of respawning on the player – we can finally turn off mute while playing Sonic 2. The patch also includes fixes for sound bugs, menu and controller issues, museum mislabeling, and data saving issues. Unfortunately, the replacement music in Ice Cap, Carnival Night, and Launch Base is still there.

The patch is now available for download on all platforms. Sonic Origins hits PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC on June 23. For more on Quick Pick games, check out our review here.
