The rumours were true!
I never played the Wii original, but I seem to remember NGamer rated it pretty highly and it was one of the better 3D Sonics. Though wasn't there a DS version as well? I wonder if this will include both of them or be some kind of mashup.
(PS. Look at me, starting a thread! How novel.)

I remember it on Wii, I never played it but I heard it's good.
Personally I love the original Sonic and I'm not fussed about any of the other things, even Sonic Mania. I quite enjoyed the movie for what it was.

Colours is as good as all-original 3D Sonic games get. I felt that there were a couple of missteps with the stiffness of the side-scrolling controls and the inconsistent pacing of it's levels, but they were easily forgivable. I'd like those to be sorted, but either way it's still a great 2D/3D hybrid platformer. It looked superb for a Wii game and the soundtrack was catchy as hell, but best of all, the gimmicks were mostly really good - there were no werehogs, no genie lamps, no Arthur's Sword, none of that mince.
I'm definitely looking forward to replaying this

This feels like exactly what Nintendo are doing with Skyward Sword. I don't like the practice, but I've heard very good things about Colours!

Colours was very good if I remember correctly, take that with a slight pinch of salt if you're not a fan of the Blue lad unlike myself but this is definitely one of the better 3D Sonic games, dare I say the best.

How does it rate against Generations? That's one of the few Sonic games I've actually enjoyed, so if it's anywhere near as good as that then I might end up showing an interest in this.
