SEGA have now confirmed that Sonic CD will be released on Xbox Live Arcade and PSN (amongst other formats). This version will feature widescreen options and achievements and trophies. The original Japanese soundtrack will also be featured.

Original story:

Microsoft’s Major Nelson has revealed that Sonic CD is set to be released on Xbox Live Arcade. The game appeared in a list of Xbox Live Arcade games due to be shown off at PAX Prime this weekend.

Sonic CD was originally released for the Mega Drive’s Mega-CD add-on in 1993. It’s widely regarded as one of the best Sonic games, so this reveal, if true and not some sort of error, will be a delight to hear for many.
