Sonic x Shadow Generations has been officially announced, and it's set to re-introduce a classic Sonic game to a modern audience with all-new content.

But there's a twist - Shadow the Hedgehog is getting in on the fun and has his own set of levels this time around. Sonic and Shadow both get their own unique experience for us to enjoy.

Let's take a look at when the game is expected to come out, as well as its platforms, gameplay details and more.

Do we know when Sonic x Shadow Generations will launch?

Sonic x Shadow Generations is set to launch at some point in Autumn 2024. We don't have an exact date yet but you can expect it to launch during that season.

Sonic x Shadow Generations platforms

The new game will be released on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Steam and Epic. That's a lot of platforms!

Sonic x Shadow Generations trailer

The first trailer for Sonic x Shadow Generations showed off what we can expect from this re-release of the beloved Sonic Generations game. The original game took loads of classic levels and re-imagined them, and now it seems like Shadow is getting some love this time around.

You can check out the first trailer above to get a good look at the gameplay, including the new Shadow campaign.
