Targeting Sonic the Hedgehog 2’s wacky Tails in the most recent Sonic Origins patch


The most recent Sonic Origins patch targets Sonic the Hedgehog 2’s awkward Tails.

Sega has updated Sonic Origins with yet another round of fixes, this time focusing on the problematic Tails AI from Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Sonic Origins is Sega’s disappointing collection of classic Sonic platformers.

When Sonic Origins launched earlier this year, it was, to put it mildly, a bit of a mess. It had so many presentational and technical problems, as thoroughly documented by Digital Foundry’s John Linneman, that the game’s developer blasted publisher Sega, calling it “very unhappy” with the state it had been launched in.

Since then, Sega has been working to address some of the game’s more serious issues. The most recent patch, update 1.04, starts with an effort to address a widely reported AI problem that would repeatedly cause Tails to disappear off-screen in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, preventing him from returning to the action.

Beyond that, patch 1.04 promises a number of additional, undocumented bug fixes, as well as changes to several incorrectly labeled soundtrack names in the museum and a speed-up of the Blue Sphere music.

But 1.04 isn’t just about fixing bugs; it also allows some fresh Sonic Mania codes to work with Sonic the Hedgehog 3’s sound test function, as described by TheOcelot01 on Twitter:

The 1.04 update for Sonic Origins is now accessible across all platforms.
