According to, Sonic Origins Plus will add 12 Game Gear games to the Museum, Amy as a playable character across all games, and Knuckles as a playable character in Sonic CD.

The main game and the new expansion will be available as one, digitally or physically, for $39.99.

Eurogamer has contacted Sega for comment on Sonic Origins Plus.

Sonic Origins didn't have the most successful launch, with many criticising it as a buggy mess. "Sonic Origins could have been the best compilation to date but, as it stands, there's more work to be done," said Digital Foundry.

Ratings for Sonic Origins Plus were spotted in Korea back in February, so news of this expansion isn't a complete surprise.

If you're after more Sonic, then the first DLC for Sonic Frontiers is out this week, bringing new challenges, photo mode, and a jukebox.
