The release of Sonic Origins is fast approaching, and as excited as many fans are about this upcoming 4-in-1 collection, there's still one question that keeps popping up - will it be getting a physical release?

Sega of America's social media manager, Katie Chrzanowski, has touched on this once again in the latest Sonic Official YouTube livestream - reiterating how a physical release currently isn't planned right now. The good news is the team (we guess that's Sega) is "aware" of the demand for a physical version. Fingers crossed.

"There isn't one planned at the moment, I have seen a lot of comments asking for one, so the team has been made aware of that, there is a want for a physical release."

It follows on from the same source confirming (via social media) there would be no physical version for Origins when the release date was revealed last week:

For a physical collector, it means you'll either have to go with a digital copy available via the Switch eShop, and multiple other digital platforms, or hold out in the hope Sega will announce a hard copy of the game sooner rather than later.

If you are grabbing the game on release, and happen to pre-order beforehand, you'll also unlock some extra goodies, which you can learn more about in our previous story.
