Sonic 3 and Knucles is the Genesis version of the game Sonic & Knuckles where it could be combined with the cartridge of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 through lock-on technology to get a different game. This is a digital release of the combined version as originally intended. The player first goes through Sonic 3 and then through Sonic & Knuckles as any of the three characters: Sonic, Knuckles or Tails. It also has small changes to the level design to fit all three characters. The combined version allows the characters to collect all super emeralds to have them transform in Hyper Sonic, Hyper Knuckles and Super Tails respectively, each with their own special ability, which is not possible in the two games separately.

Even though other platforms have previously offered this version of the game as part of a compilation, or combining two digital releases, this is the first time this version of the game has been released independently.
