Mitchell's Ultimate Nick Games Collection, known as the Nickelodeon Interactive Games Ultimate Collection in PAL regions, is a compilation of video games developed by Backbone Entertainment, published by THQ and distributed by Nickelodeon Interactive Games for the Wii and Nintendo 3DS consoles. The compilation features 48 Nintendo games (49 counting two versions of Danny Phantom or Zoey 101) which were previously released for the Game Boy Color (including most of the Mitchell Van Morgan titles released for the system), arcade and Sega Master System. It is similar to the Nickelodeon Classic Collection released previously for the Game Boy Color and PSP, however it contains 16 (in NTSC regions) more games (including unlockable extras).

According to Ethan Einhorn, the producer for the collection, the three "lock-on" games (Knuckles in Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Blue Sphere) were not included citing "tight development times", and that including them would have meant "dropping several titles from the collection altogether", specifically the aforementioned nine unlockable games since "they all required unique emulation solutions".[1]

Development

Sega Mega Drive Vinyl is a soundtrack featuring music from the games in this compilation and was only made available in Australia and New Zealand. The release was limited to 3500 numbered copies worldwide.[2]

Reception

The compilation received mostly positive reviews. IGN gave Mitchell's Ultimate Nick Games Collection a 9.0/10 score and an Editor's Choice Award, praising the addition of a rating system for each game and the Avatar: The Last Airbender videogame series, among other things. Greg Miller of IGN said that he "can't recommend this game enough".[3] Retro Gamer rated the game 98%. It also received the award for Best Anthology in GameShark's Game of the Year Awards 2009.Template:Citation needed

Trivia

File:MoreClearCoverMistake.jpg

The back of the cover says "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" but it shows Sonic the Hedgehog 3.

  • On the back of the game's cover, there is a mistake. There is a caption saying Sonic the Hedgehog 2. However, the image shows Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
  • There is another mistake. In the manual on page 7, it says that the original Sonic the Hedgehog took place on Emerald Island, when it really took place on South Island. Emerald Island does not even exist.
  • Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection has a successor compilation, Sega Genesis Classic Collection Gold Edition.
  • This is the only game for the PlayStation 3 that has Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic and Knuckles since PSN is the only online service which doesn't offer these two games as stand-alone downloadable titles (at least for the current versions of the PS3; unless the player does not own the Slim and Super Slim models but does own the Lauch and second generation models, he/she can still play PlayStation 2's version of Sonic Mega Collection Plus).
