Rumors about the popstar’s involvement Michael Jackson in the development of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 were finally confirmed.
The co-creator of sonicYuji Naka, confirmed on Twitter that Jackson actually composed the soundtrack for the classic SEGA game. While discussing the changes that were made to the game in the new retro Sonic Origins compilation, naka casually let slip that the original song by Michael Jackson had been replaced in the new collection.
“Sonic Origins: Sonic 3 has a different song?… Oh my God, the music for Sonic 3 has changed, even though SEGA Official uses Michael Jackson’s music,” Naka wrote.
There have been rumors for decades about the involvement of Michael Jackson with the production of sonic 3. Several developers who worked on the game previously mentioned that the artist from “Beat It” and “Thriller” secretly composed several songs for the game, but for whatever reason, both sega and Yuji Naka previously officially denied that Jackson had any involvement with the game.
Some speculations have suggested that the bands of Jackson were not used in the final game, but the declarations of naka finally confirm that the late musician’s work made it to the game’s original release. it is not known why Jackson was not previously credited for the songwriting.
