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.

We finally have some decent footage of the new collection which was recorded (on PS4) by one of the youtubers who has been advertising the game for SEGA. He was lucky enough to visit SEGA's European headquarters in London and has been allowed to the play the game and show-off some footage.

In his video (where he does a "10 games he's most looking forward to playing in the collection") he also shows-off some brief footage of Sonic 2 in "mirror mode" (around 3:40 in video) with the screen flipped horizontally. Imagine trying to do the special stages with the screen flipped...

He confirmed we also have the option of playing the Japanese version of Ristar. I wonder if the JP version of Dynamite Headdy (which was added to SEGA Forever release) will also be playable in this collection?

Edit: Another youtuber has uploaded footage:

I'm assuming M2 is helping them since that's what they did with the Sega Vintage Collections on Xbox Live.

"Disable sprite limit". I wonder how they'll prevent that from breaking S1's title screen.

Reminder that Sega Smash Pack 2 had more accurate sound emulation back in 2000 than the collections that have followed in the recent years
