Sonic Superstars release date: Sonic speeds through a colourful 2D level

If you’re looking for the Sonic Superstars release date, you’re in the right place. A brand new 2D entry in the franchise, Sonic Superstars is a colorful and gorgeous sidescroller that we can’t wait to share with friends. Much like many titles from our best Switch platformers guide.

A 2D sidescroller in a 3D visual style, Sonic Superstars looks similar to Sonic Generations, but is strictly about that sidescrolling action. The world is bright and colorful, and we even get some glimpses of fun new powers in the Sonic Superstars announcement trailer.

Plus, like any good Sonic game (depending on who you ask), you can also play as several of the Sonic crew. Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy are all playable, with up to four-player local multiplayer.
