Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is a downloadable version of the Sega Mega Drive game Sonic the Hedgehog 3, released in 2009 for the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade as part of the "Sega Vintage Collection" series. Many of the same additions and drawbacks of the previous ports of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 are present as a result of its customized emulation. No PlayStation 3 version was released.

As of May 20, 2022, this version of Sonic 3 has been delisted from Xbox Live alongside other re-releases of Sonic games on this and other platforms in preparation for the release of Sonic Origins[8][9].

Gameplay

The game is run on an Mega Drive emulator and allows for control by either analog stick or D-pad. Since the game uses a custom title screen it is not possible to enter any cheat codes via the Sound Test or select the in-game options selection. A custom Options screen is available, which allows the player to toggle a graphics smoothing filter, character selection, screen size adjustment, and custom button mapping. A custom Game Save option is also included, overriding the original game's Save Screen and Level Select. Leaderboards for Overall High Scores over Xbox Live Arcade and Achievements are supported.
