The 2010 Wii game, Sonic Colors, has been listed for release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Twitter user Cybrid101 noted that German studio IKSample listed the game for a 2020 release, while a retailer has also listed the game on their website.

With the current global pandemic it is possible that the game was delayed before it was officially announced, or it is possible that it has been cancelled altogether.

IKSample is a studio that handles post-game voice overs and localizations, likely dubbing the game in German for release in Germany.

When you click on their website you are just greeted with a maintenance sign, which isn't good news.
