Sonic Colors Ultimate Physical Editions Delayed In Europe, Set To Be Scheduled For October
Update (September 14):
A member of the Nintendo Life team has received an order update from Amazon in Portugal, indicating that it will be delivered on October 11 or later, so there is still quite a bit of a wait in this case.
Original article (August 23):
Just two weeks away from the September 7 release date of the Sonic Colors Ultimate remaster, SEGA has announced that “unforeseen logistical problems“will cause delays for the physical edition.
“All physical editions of Sonic: Colors Ultimate, which include both the Standard Edition and the Keychain Edition, will be delayed in all EMEA markets except Australia and New Zealand. . This does not affect digital output on all proprietary platforms. “
There are a few things in this statement to note: The digital output is not affected by the delay, which means it is likely something COVID-related with the production of manufacturing and / or l ‘shipping – the physical edition of the Doki Doki Literature Club has suffered the same delays recently – and not having to do with the game.
The statement, which SEGA Europe posted on Twitter, also seems to imply that Australia and New Zealand might not be affected, although the delay is specifically mentioned as being in the EMEA region, which only includes Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It also means that the Sonic Colors Ultimate will most likely launch as planned on September 7 in North America and Asia.
But third, are we supposed to spell it “Sonic Colors Ultimate” or not? We know the European version is spelled with the “u” (thanks) but when we cover information that may or may not affect the market without u it becomes very confusing.
The physical edition includes the game and a “Baby Sonic Keychain”, and offers versions for Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The updated release date for the EMEA has yet to be announced.
Does this delay affect you? Let us know in the comments.
