Yuji Naka has officially confirmed the long-persisting rumor that Michael Jackson did write music for the soundtrack of Sonic the Hedgehog 3.

The Sonic creator revealed the news on Twitter in celebration of the first game’s 31st anniversary, first asking the question “Does Sonic Origins Sonic 3 have a different song?” in reference to the recently-released remastered compilation of the first four Sonic games entitled Sonic Origins. He managed to answer his own question, stating, “Oh my god, the music for Sonic 3 has changed, even though Sega Official uses Michael Jackson’s music.”

Naka also shared a TikTok video of Sonic channeling his inner Michael Jackson with “Billie Jean,” adding, “SEGA Official uses Michael Jackson’s music. means this.” To corroborate his claims, he shared a photo of the late artist’s Neverland ranch shot from high above, “This is a picture taken by me with my camera when we went to his house in his helicopter. It’s pretty faded. I miss it.”

Elsewhere in gaming, Skate 4 will reportedly be revealed in July.
