Might want to ditch the headphones for these

As we recently mentioned, Sonic Origins Plus doesn’t launch until June 23rd, 2023, but some people have already gotten their copies early, so they’ve been exploring the package in and out. That’s led them to playing some Game Gear games, and unfortunately it seems there’s a bit of an audio issue.
As you can see/hear in the tweet at the top of this post, the Game Gear games in Sonic Origins Plus seem to have some sort of strange audio echo. It’s not clear if SEGA did this on purpose to emulate stereo or it’s a mistake, but fans are unhappy either way.
Since Sonic Origins Plus isn’t available just yet, there could be a day-one patch to fix this problem. We’ll keep tabs on the situation and see if anything comes along to remedy the issue.
