Specially because flying battery was going to be in place of Icecap.

You know how Jackson is known for doing a couple of collaborations in The Simpsons (namely, "Do the Bartman" and "Happy Birthay Lisa") on the condition of remaining anonymous, because admitting that he worked somewhere else would have had some legal consequences due to the contract he had with Sony at the time?

I suspect that the same happened here. Thing is, the contract was MJ's and, well, he can't get into legal trouble anymore (some of the Simpsons staff started admitting these things after his death), so... SEGA, please just go ahead and re-release Sonic 3. =P

I think it's unlikely that the legal troubles are due to Michael Jackson or the Michael Jackson estate. If anything it's probably someone (or some people) in his team who was credited in Sonic 3. As far as I'm aware, there's very little evidence that Jackson had much involvement in the songs outside of the very beginning stages.

I also think that's the case. MJ was cut from the project, while his team was not.

As we think about it, let's just enjoy this Icecap ripoff that sounds quite good.
