Sonic fans who took up Sega’s early release promotion with Sonic Colors: Ultimate over the weekend found more than just Wisps in their Nintendo Switch versions of the game. A variety of graphical and gameplay errors awaited the blue hedgehog and many were shared by fans online. We even encountered some in our review of the game.



Blind Squirrel Games, the company that Sega hired to make the remaster on all platforms, responded on Sunday via Twitter. They confirmed that a patch is in the works and will be released “as soon as possible.”



In addition to their tweet, Katie Chrzanowski, the social media manager of the Sonic the Hedgehog brand, tweeted about the game’s issues and upcoming patch on her personal Twitter account. She includes the link to Sega’s support site, like Blind Squirrel Games did in their tweet, so that fans can report what issues they’re having with their copies.



Unfortunately, over the weekend when bugs were being shared, some notable individuals made videos using footage obtained from using a Nintendo Switch emulator for PC and Linux. Throwing around bugs that cannot be recreated on a legit Nintendo Switch version of the game will affect the development of the patch, hence Chrzanowski’s follow-up tweet.

Physical editions of Sonic Colors: Ultimate release tomorrow, Tuesday, September 7th.
