Yuji Naka Considers Michael Jackson's Involvement with Sonic 3 ...

The third Sonic the Hedgehog game was first introduced by fans and critics since Sonic Origins began. Now, Sonic creator Yuji Naka has apparently confirmed decades-old rumors about the game''s soundtrack.

Fans have speculated about Michael Jackson''s involvement with Sonic the Hedgehog 3''s soundtrack. Sega and Jackson''s staff have gone back-and-forth on the singer''s involvement with Sonic 3 throughout the years. While Sega and Jackson''s directors have denied any official agreement or agreement with Jackson, a recent tweet from Yuji Naka suggests the player was actually involved in Sonic the Hedgehog 3.

Following the release of Sonic Origins, many fans quickly noticed that the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 version in the compilation uses different music than the original one. Yuji Naka, a fan of the changes, said that "Sega Official uses Michael Jackson''s music," as well as the sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic & Knuckles, had served as producers. This tweet casually confirms Jackson''s involvement with Sonic 3.

Many users have speculated that the peculiar alteration in Sonic the Hedgehog 3''s soundtrack in the recent compilation may result in licensing problems with Jackson''s estate. While Sega itself have not officially confirmed Jackson''s involvement, the third Sonic game has notably seen a limited number of re-releases. Before Sonic''s Ultimate Genesis Collection was first released just months before Jackson''s death.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3''s first official release has been made in several years. This week, the Sonic franchise is preparing for its next main-series release, which includes significant improvements to the franchise''s traditional approach, with more non-linear gameplay. While the two Sonic movies have seen success outside video games, Sonic Origins is a tribute to the franchise''s history.

Sonic Origins is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
