A massive new mod of the classic Genesis game Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles is now available.
The mod is built off the Steam version of Sonic & Knuckles 3, meaning that game is needed to play the port. The new version is made to not be restricted by the specifications and processes of the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, allowing 60 frames-per-second gameplay and widescreen support.
The fan remake, titled Sonic 3 A.I.R. (short for Sonic 3 Angel Island Revisited) brings in many new features while staying true to the original, such as a time attack mode, widescreen support, xBRZ pixel filter, as well as movement options including Tails Assist and Flight Cancel.
A remastered soundtrack by DJSpindash is included in the game.
The official release and download links were shared on Twitter by user Eukaryot3K. Check out the tweet below.
Finally revisit the entirety of Angel Island in native 16:9 widescreen.
