How to Play as Super Sonic in Sonic Colors: Ultimate

Sonic Colors Ultimate 1 (1)

Playing as Sonic is good, but everyone knows that playing as Super Sonic is even better. So, how do unlock him in Sonic Colors: Ultimate?

Playing as Super Sonic has multiple benefits in Sonic Colors: Ultimate. He’s invincible for one, and can infinitely boost. But now for the downsides: Super Sonic can’t make use of Wisps, and his ring supply steadily diminishes. Should the ring counter drop to zero, he’ll return to being regular old Sonic again. But just how do you unlock and play as Super Sonic in Sonic Colors: Ultimate?

To play as Super Sonic in Sonic Colors: Ultimate, you need to collect all seven Chaos Emeralds, as usual. You don’t get them by completing the game’s normal stages, however. Instead, you need to complete the stages found in Game Land’s Sonic Simulator. You’ll find Game Land in the upper right hand corner of the world map.

When you first start playing Sonic Colors: Ultimate, only the first act of each of the seven worlds available in the Sonic Simulator will be available. To get the Chaos Emeralds, you need to complete all three acts of each world. To unlock the second and third acts, you need to collect the Red Rings found throughout the game’s normal stages.

Ultimately, you’ll need to collect all 180 Red Rings spread throughout Sonic Colors: Ultimate, which is no mean feat. Once you’ve found them all, however, and then completed all of the unlocked stages in Sonic Simulator, you’ll unlock the ability to play as Super Sonic. So, put in the effort and you’ll be rewarded.
