The lights are on
Some crafty Sonic junkies have rooted around in the recently released Sonic Generations demo and discovered a real doozy. We can’t be positive that this is the final list, but it does suggest that there are far fewer classic stages than longtime fans may appreciate.
The levels appear to be listed chronologically, acting as a timetable of Sonic’s history over the… generations? It also suggests that Casino Night Zone will be DLC. The level is apparently a pinball stage exclusive to preorders. Another revelation is each stage will have about 5 acts. Other scuttlebutt hints that the game will also come with a Genesis emulator. Could Sega be using this as another opportunity to offer fans a Sonic collection?

We’ll keep you posted if any more developments arise.
