Michael Jackson supposedly working on the soundtrack for Sonic 3 has been an urban myth in gaming for decades.
Hedgehog fans have been trying to confirm if that was the case for years, and today the former head of Sega Yūji Naka It seems to have confused the fans more.
“Oh my gosh Sonic 3’s music has changed even though SEGA Official uses Michael Jackson’s music,” Naka tweeted.
However, Naka clarified that he was actually referring to an official video of TikTok of sega in which the music of michaeljackson, not to the official soundtrack of Sonic 3.
The former Sega boss has clearly been playing Sonic Origins, which was released on multiple platforms around the world just a few hours ago.
The present day, Naka questioned whether the music of Sonic 3 it had been changed from the original for the sake of the new collection. The answer to that question is yes, and it’s been a point of contention ever since the news was revealed shortly before the release of Origins.
No one can decide who exactly owns the rights to the game’s soundtrack, and that means the music you hear when you play Sonic 3 in Origins this week may sound a little different.

If you still did not know that the connection of MJ with Sonic 3 It’s been something fans have turned to for years, you need look no further than the responses to Naka and Nibellion’s posts.
After discussing and researching the gaming legend for over 28 years, fans know nothing to see someone who would know for sure one way or another just tweeting like it’s common knowledge.
Michael Jackson was presumably a great gamer. He not only had a huge collection of arcade cabinets, he even had a video game of his own, Moonwalker.
