It looks like Sonic Colors, a Wii-exclusive Sonic the Hedgehog game that launched in 2010, might be headed to modern systems soon.
News of this comes from a since hidden note on the iksample website, which is a German dubbing studio that has worked on the Sonic the Hedgehog series in the past on projects like Sonic Boom. The listing was discovered by Twitter users @Kutairo_, who posted a screenshot saying Sonic Colors Remastered was being localized in German back in December of last year.

While the German localization for a hypothetical Sonic Colors remaster seems to be in the works, it’s unclear if the voice cast will be different for English releases as well. In the past few months, many members of the English cast for a majority of Sonic the Hedgehog projects have announced they’re no longer affiliated with the franchise. Including Roger Craig Smith, who voiced the titular blue blur for a decade before his departure. While it would be extra work, it doesn’t seem unreasonable that Sega and Sonic Team might redub the game with whoever is taking up the roles of Sonic and friends in the future. For the brand synergy, ya know?

Sonic Colors Remastered could be one of possibly multiple Sonic projects planned for 2021, as the series is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Sega and Sonic Team have already said that new games would be part of the anniversary celebrations, but hopefully there’s something new in works beyond a remaster of a Wii game.
In other Sonic the Hedgehog news, a Netflix series called Sonic Prime is set to air on the streaming service sometime in 2022.
