The PC version was delayed because it requires additional work to be optimized for the PC. Whether this means that the game is currently a straight port from the console version is unknown, though the company did stress that "quality is the most important thing for everyone involved".
New in this Sonic title is the addition of a new movement skill called the "drop dash" that allows players to instantly accelerate upon landing on surfaces. The drop dash can be used to break through barricades and take out enemies.
Sega has also announced that players who have prepurchased the game via Steam will be receiving the original Sonic the Hedgehog on Steam free of charge as a way of thanking players for their support.
