Maaaaaaaaybe. The Sonic 1 tidbits were all little novelties that were at least partially implemented in the original code. Hidden Palace needs a lot more work by comparison. This isn't to say they're adverse to doing it, given how Sonic CD had an entire extra zone that got scrapped for logistical reasons, just that it'd be pretty special if they did, and probably has a lot more to do with how much support Sega's putting behind the project than how much they'd personally like to.

A Sonic 2 level (with preexisting music, even) isn't quite so big a project as a Sonic CD level though, and Sonic 2 in general doesn't need as much brushing up as Sonic 1 did, so they've likely got the time to throw behind that big of an addition, and it is pretty famous... hm.

I've talked myself into it, it'll happen.

Was the new Sonic CD level in the steam version? I don't recall playing something that wasn't in my SEGA CD version.

It wasn't actually included, it was a file people found on the debug I think and that Taxman later confirmed was going to be a new level, Desert Dazzle, that SEGA said was a nice idea but no thanks we don't want to alter too much.

EDIT: http://info.sonicretro.org/Desert_Dazzle

The extra level, Desert Dazzle;

http://info.sonicretro.org/Final_Fever

The extra final boss, Final Fever.

Obviously neither were actually added in the end.

Yeah. And it's such ashame. The stages would have really done well in Sonic CD.

Dredging this thread back up because Joystiq says it's out tomorrow with a certain bonus in tow.

It's Dessert Dazzle! :mrgreen: But seriously I'm with you on that.

I was kind of looking forward to Wood Zone but I shouldn't complain when we're getting a restored zone nevertheless.

Spoiler: show
A boss with a trumpet? That doesn't seem like it fits Hidden Palace Zone. That's more like a boss for Stardust Speedway if Metal Sonic wasn't there.

I'm guessing it's Sega's TRUMPet card.
