Released by SEGA in 1993, SONIC CD follows Sonic the Hedgehog as he attempts to save Little Planet from Doctor Robotnik. With its time travel elements players are transported to different versions of the stages, each featuring alternate music and layouts based on the time period.

The original Japanese score was re-written by new composers for the US release, but this remastered version promises to bring the original soundtrack to a wider audience. Composers Naofumi Hataya and Masafumi Ogata drew on techno and house tracks for their inspiration, with the soundtrack’s fast-paced tone reflecting on the often hectic nature of the game.

The limited edition includes original artwork from SEGA’s archive and liner notes by composer Naofumi Hataya. The random splatter effect guarantees each copy is unique.
