Longtime readers of SEGAbits should know by now my love for Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. I’ve written about it a lot, so much so that each one of those words is a different article. So it pleases me to write about it AGAIN to share that Discotek Media will be releasing an SD on Blu-Ray release of the series, meaning the full series in standard definition on two blu-ray discs. But that’s not all!
Discotek promises a slew of new bonuses including:
- Stereo sound (something the most recent DVDs lacked)
- Near master quality video
- The Christmas special
- The original sales pilot!
- Original rushes (unedited raw footage) for Super Special Sonic Search and Smash Squad
- Commentary from artist and animator Milton Knight on two episodes plus the pilot and rushes
- Original commercial bumpers
- Syndication commercials
- Art gallery with rare production art
- New package art by Jon “Persona” Kim, Chris “Black” Flores and Brady Hartel
- Closed captions
The new complete series set releases February 2022, and you can see a sampling of the bonuses and packaging below. Discotek has also shared a peek at the pilot. Now let’s get the Sonic OVA on blu-ray and a Western release of the Japanese Sonic X dub!
