Awoo.

Headcannon is only working on the S3&K portion of Sonic Origins; Origins itself is handled exclusively by Sega's internal devs

Might explain why there aren't any brand new gameplay features in 1/2/CD like Knuckles in Sonic CD. Sega considers those versions "complete" and are porting the mobile versions as-is, only adding Origins-specific elements.

Also, Headcannon have no involvement in any of the bonus modes such as mission mode or mirror mode:

This is an interesting bit of information I feel, and especially notable is how they're only commissioning Headcannon for work on the engine, so they likely had no say on how the collection itself was developed/features. It kind of frames them differently then what Sega was doing with Dimps, I'm curious as to where this will go in the future.

It's cool that Headcannon is getting involved but it's also a little disappointing. I suppose they made some additions, but Origins was really a chance to go above and beyond with things like Knuckles in CD or customizability options like a max control scheme. Now, this won't serve as that much of a detriment to Origins, it's nice to have all these games in the same place, and it's nice to see Sonic 3 re-released after all this time, but I'm not sure...I just wish there was a little something more. Maybe I'm just being ungrateful, who knows. I guess the additions already made are alright, the cutscenes are amazing, the 3d renders of the islands are cool, but I think maybe that little bit of content (and doing away with the stupid pricing scheme whose idea was that) would have pushed it over the edge. I'm not necessarily disappointed, just think that they could've put in more effort in a few places.

Headcanon has been saying they only worked on the Sonic 3 part since they announced their involvement. It's one of many reasons I'm waiting for a sale. Any serious problems will be patched out by then.

Yeaaaaah, I'm waiting on the canaries to report back on if, and how badly, Sega screwed this up here.

My hype really just flat-lined. Just like that, huh?

Okay, I'm exaggerating here, but this just confirms to me that there won't be any real "fun" features like the whole sprite swapping thing. Kinda stinks.

I think its funny and fair that all it took was Sega being directly involved for people to be skeptical

Can you blame us though? Sega tend to screw things up when it comes to Sonic.

That's why I said it was fair, Sega have done nothing to earn any good will when it comes to Sonic.

Well at least we know 3K will be awesome. That's assuming SEGA haven't fucked it up when they added the "Origins-specifics".

I still think this will be a solid collection, but could have been so much better if Headcannon and/or Evening Star were developing the entirety of Origins.
