Fans Petition For Sega To Bring 'Sonic 3 & Knuckles Remastered' To Mobile Devices

Sonic-3-Remastered-Campaign-LaunchesSeveral months back, it was revealed that the developers behind the mobile ports of the first two Sonic The Hedgehog games had created a touchscreen prototype of Sonic 3 & Knuckles. With solid evidence on show that the third entry in the series would look great on the go, fans have started a campaign to get Sega to take note and make this unfinished port a reality.

As it stands, and as far as we know, Sega currently has no plans to release Sonic 3 & Knuckles on mobile devices. The very demo on show from Christian Whitehead (Taxman) and Simon Thomley (Stealth) was purely a proof of concept to demonstrate what could be done using the existing engine, along with several other updates and additions - like that of Hidden Palace Zone in Sonic The Hegehog 2.

The newly launched Sonic 3 Remastered website is hoping to raise awareness of Whitehead and Thomley's efforts, all with the aim of getting Sega's attention. While we very much assume the Japanese developer is aware of the prototype, we're of the belief that we need to make a bit of noise and prove that there is indeed a market for Sonic 3 & Knuckles on Android and iOS.

Whether or not this campaign will gain traction is up to us. So if you want the 16-bit classic in your pocket, head on over to the campaign's official website and make yourself heard.

I hate playing games on touch screen when they originally used a D-Pad. I'm even having issues playing Vay on the iPhone.

All the remakes of old games is just poor in my mind. They should start making new games. I've no time for developers who push out the old and call it new. Just look at the mess they made of Radiant Silvergun BLAH!
