LBz The fact we now know there was a full soundtrack made for the game (the prototype) and suddenly the marketing guys bring a new set of musicians to replace them all... Do you think the original composers would be super excited about it? We got some reports people were thrilled about working with MJ but all points toward Michael Jackson leaving the project early due to the sound quality issues. Do mind that Sonic Team's hand was forced in other areas too, like having the game split in two due to the McDonald's deal. -- Now, my personal opinion. It's an honor to have the PC songs back. They are a big part of Sonic 3 history, not only because they are the original tracks before MJ was brought in but because they are connected to the bigger picture of SEGA musicians who have spent years working with limited hardware to bring the sound we love into our homes. There's no reason to complain about the MJ tracks being removed. He stopped working on the project after the first song. and we've spent 11 years without Sonic 3 because of some 30-second "cues" (they're not even fully-fledged compositions by music industry standards). Now we're finally free. We may have Headcanon's remaster appear on mobile in the future, maybe M2 will include the game in the Megadrive Mini 2 or even a Sega Ages version! Who knows? That one is easy. They asked full price for Sonic & Knuckles. Having it replace some tracks in Sonic 3 does give the combined version a new life and makes the package seem more elaborate. New sections open up, new jingles. It's pretty cool how SK changes Sonic 3.
