Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Remastered Interview with Simon 'Stealth' Thomley | Power Up Gaming
The seminal Sonic the Hedgehog series on the Sega Genesis is one many gamers hold close to their hearts; indeed, many of us here at Power Up Gaming grew up playing the classic platforming trilogy. It's not always been easy being a Sonic fan, however, even when it comes to the series that started it all for the lightning fast blue hedgehog. After a number of less than stellar re-releases in the form of mishandled ports and lazy emulation, long-suffering Sonic fans were finally given hope back in 2013, when Sega announced the release of a truly remastered version of the 1991 original – in enhanced, widescreen glory – for mobile devices. Even better, the company had quite literally turned to fans for help in ensuring the remaster afforded the original game the respect it deserved. Following their successful development and launch of a remade version of another 16-bit gem, Sonic CD, Sega contracted two Sonic fans-turned-professional programmers to lovingly recreate the game.
