Including Tails Adventure

Remember Sonic Origins? Well its Plus form! In a seemingly make-good effort (doesn't seem like enough!), Sega is adding an expansion pack (that's $9.99 as an expansion, or $39.99 as a standalone that includes Sonic Origins) that has a few content additions that a lot of Sonic fans might enjoy. The big takeaway? Amy Rose is playable in Sonic 1, 2, 3 + Knuckles and Sonic CD. The plussed-up Plus will also add new modes, animations, music, and other aesthetic options.
Here's the full description from Sega:
"Sonic Origins Plus will be available as an all-in-one bundle that includes the Sonic Origins base game and the Plus Expansion Pack, featuring 12 Sonic Game Gear titles, playable Knuckles in Sonic CD, and for the first time ever: Amy Rose as a playable character in Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic CD! This pack also includes previously released add-on content: Extreme Missions, Mirror Mode, new character animations, and additional backgrounds and music. The premium physical edition will also include a 20-page artbook and a reversible coversheet that pays homage to the classic 1990s era of Sonic."
Yep, Game Gear games. There's 12 in all, and Tails Adventure is a clear standout when it comes to preservation and historical value: as I'd wager a large percentage of folks reading this article haven't played it.
