Sonic Generations hidden statue codes officially revealed

Most Sonic Generations fans will already be aware of the “secret” statue room accessed through the Collector’s Room by holding down the back/select button for five seconds. Short numerical codes can be entered to add statues of modern and classic Sonic characters and items, but the codes themselves have mysteriously only been released by Sega in trickles, until a recent, official announcement. Hit the jump for more details and the official code list!

A recent post made on the official Sega blog, by Online Community Manager Kellie Parker, lists 29 statue codes and the statues they unlock, along with brief instructions on how to enter the room. The list is, however, incomplete, with many websites displaying lists totalling 55 codes unlocked by eager fans unwilling to wait for official instructions. In the post, Parker makes reference to the complete lists found on the internet but does not elaborate as to why an official list has taken so long to be released.

Prior to this, the only codes officially released were on the Japanese Sonic Generations site, with the Sonic 20th Anniversary OST and supposedly through a peculiar offer with UK clothing and food store, Marks & Spencer.

I personally think that the codes were intended for use in some sort of marketing scheme that never materialised or that has been quelled by the complete list being spread across the internet. Hopefully Sega will shine some more light on their intentions of the code system as well as releasing more codes in the near future.

At the time of writing, the blog was not down, but seeing as it is was closed earlier for maintenance, the entire post has been transcribed below:

By now, you’ve probably played (and beaten!) Sonic Generations a few times, but what you may not know is that there’s a hidden Statue Room, and codes to unlock many different statues. Some of these codes have been posted around the internet, but it’s time to make it official — here’s how to get to the Statue Room and some of the statues within.

  1. Pretty nuts. I completely forgot about the statue area after I racked my brain for ways of the codes being exposed within the game itself. It’s cool to see this list now, but I too am curious as to why it was kept a secret for so long.

  2. Instructions on how to get to the room were actually printed in the manual of my UK copy of Sonic Generations, which I didn’t bother reading until I’d had the game a few weeks.

    The manual also states:
    “…enter pass code obtained from the SONIC GENERATIONS Official Site.” Which of course, have not been revealed until now.

    It was still shocking to find that the room existed with no single reference to it, or the codes, within the game itself Madness.

  3. I have a small US manual, with a URL for a downloadable manual, but the link does not work. This explains why they sorta assumed people knew about the statue room. But it’s also lame that I don’t have a manual.

    I demand that more trees die for my gaming needs.

    • And I remember complaining because my manual was in black & white… At least the UK one wasn’t deceptively large, but in fact contained the same three pages in twelve different European languages, as some of them have done in the past.

  4. And that’s why I don’t like digital manuals…
