The late Michael Jackson's involvement in the creation of Sonic the Hedgehog 3's soundtrack has been a long-running rumor in gaming circles, and one that the co-creator of Sega's blue blur has confirmed.

With the release of Sonic Origins, a compilation of classic Sonic games for modern platforms, veteran game developer Yuji Naka commented on how Sonic the Hedgehog 3's original soundtrack was missing from the game. «Oh my god, the music for Sonic 3 has changed, even though Sega Official uses Michael Jackson's music,» Naka tweeted.

Oh my god, the music for Sonic 3 has changed, even though SEGA Official uses Michael Jackson's music. Naka also tweeted a photo taken from Jackson's home when the Sonic 3 team visited the estate: This is a picture taken by me with my camera when we went to his house in his helicopter.
