Sonic CD now out for everything except Nintendo consoles

I guess the sprite work really depends, since some may see using the originals a showing of authenticity, but others may like refined ones for stylistic fit.
I suppose they alternatively could try Amy... *hint* *hint*

and to get Knuckles to fit the style, you'd basically have to edit his sprites or make a set of completely new ones, which I don't think SEGA would do.
Although I just now tried to edit Knuckle's Sonic 3 sprite to match moreso to Sonic 1/C to see if you could make it fit.
When I tried, it actually took quite abit of effort to get him to look like this, and even then it still doesn't look right, so I guess this puts getting Knuckeles in Sonic CD DLC out of the question, unless you all don't mind style clashing.
Regular S3 Knuckles looked just fine in Sonic 2. Really, you're overselling the 'clashing' thing. The styles really aren't that different.

I agree, though I will admit that is an excellent job at finetuning Knuckles to a Sonic 1 style. I love Sonic 1's look, so I'm delighted to see this sprite.

While I do like the modified sprite for Knuckles I think the dreadlocks look off. I always figured the ones near the back of his head whole be further front

Agruing over the sprite won't matter as much as someone's ability to code it into a romhack. I'd prefer an actual DLC release by taxman, but at this point it's hard to know if we'll even ever receive a patch for glitches, let alone full DLC.
At this point, is there anyone who can take the existing sprites and just start hacking Knux into the game so we get a feel for how he'd play? Or is this something I could only count on Stealth/Taxman to pull off?
