Sonic Mega Collection Plus (ソニック メガコレクション プラス) is compilation of 20 older titles from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, which were originally released on the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis and Sega Game Gear. It was released for PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Microsoft Windows based personal computers. It is an update of Sonic Mega Collection for the Nintendo GameCube, which adds two games previously only available in the Japanese version, six Game Gear games, updated illustrations, a new menu interface, and a mid-game saving feature.
The compilation was itself included in later compilations on all three platforms: Sonic Mega Collection Plus & Super Monkey Ball Deluxe (2005, Xbox), Sega Fun Pack: Sonic Mega Collection Plus & Shadow the Hedgehog (2009, PS2) and Sonic PC Collection (2009, PC).
The following descriptions are quoted from the introduction screen of each game.
A mid-game saving feature was added. Bonus material includes high-resolution scans of the manuals of all MD/Genesis and Game Gear Sonic games, covers of the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comic, official illustrations of all series characters (updated since the GameCube version to accommodate games released in the interim), and movies of the production process of Sonic Heroes from storyboard to finished game.

The US manuals for the Xbox (p. 15) and PS2 (p. 17) versions contain a dating error: Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is listed as having been released on 24 January 1994; in actuality it was released on 2 February 1994 (Groundhog Day, referred to by Sega as "Hedgehog Day" to mark the occasion).
