Due to the development failure that was Sonic X-treme, Sega had Traveller's Tales produce a port of Sonic 3D Blast consisting of improved graphics, an all-new soundtrack, and fully 3D Special Stages reminiscent of the ones from Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

The Japanese version wasn't released until the death of the Saturn in 1999, on the same day that Sonic Adventure International was released in Japan.
