Sega Ages: Sonic the Hedgehog (SEGA AGES ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグ) is a re-release of Sonic the Hedgehog developed by M2 as the first game of the Sega Ages lineup for the Nintendo Switch, released alongside Thunder Force IV. It was first announced in early 2018, and later released worldwide in September 2018.

Additional features

This re-release includes almost all of the features from 3D Sonic the Hedgehog. These include the Spin Dash, which still retains its oddity in that Sonic can still be damaged by collision with a moving Badnik while charging the move. Other returning features include the Level Select option, the display filters and the ability to play either the Rev.01 or Rev.00 version (which the interface describes as "Japan" and "International" respectively).

In addition to the returning features, there are brand new ones. One such feature is the inclusion of the Drop Dash from Sonic Mania, which can be toggled alongside the Spin Dash, and the inclusion of the "Ring Keeper" mode from 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2, where the player starts each Act with 10 Rings and only loses half their Rings when hit. By far the biggest new feature that has been added is the ability to play the Mega Play arcade version of the game, which marks the first time this version has ever seen a re-release on a digital platform.

There is also a Challenge Mode where the player can compete for a high score in one of two challenges with their best scores being uploaded to an online leaderboard. The challenges are:

  1. Time Attack: Complete Green Hill Zone Act 1 as quickly as possible.
  2. Score Attack: Play through the Mega Play version and get the highest score possible with only one life.
