Sonic Colors Ultimate Glitches Thumbnail Art Created by CREED
Several players across the Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch versions of Sonic Colors Ultimate have reported issues with the game. The issues stem from players who got access to the Digital Deluxe version of Sonic Colors. The worst offender of this problem seems to be the Nintendo Switch version which has more egregious performance and stability issues.
Several players over YouTube have made several compilations. You can watch one of the compilations below:
Meanwhile, issues regarding the game's stability and problems are being published by Ultimate users who gained early access on Twitter. You can find some examples of this below:

While several users have reported issues regarding their experience with Sonic Colors Ultimate, one user stood out from the crowd. Former Twitter user Kotaru Extra (now deleted) reported several issues with the game involving Sonic T-posing and a flickering UI. However, the user later declared that they were playing on an emulated version of the game through Yuzu.
The guy who admitted to faking the Sonic Colors Ultimate glitches via Yuzu emulator deleted his account. This person knows that they are in serious trouble with law enforcement. pic.twitter.com/Fp50dzCTeU

Ever since then, some players have disregarded glitches as coming from an emulator. However, several other players have confirmed that the issues happened on original hardware rather than on an emulated version. Additionally, some of these issues can cause seizures to some players. The Sonic The Hedgehog Social Media manager has confirmed that the game is going to be patched soon:
Quick aside: we've seen some graphical issues that were caused by an emulator which is unfortunately outside our control.
Trying to figure out what bugs are legitimate can really slow down the QA process. If you're having issues, please do flag them here: https://t.co/vymOVVEyZp

Meanwhile, Nintendo is reportedly offering refunds for Sonic Colors Ultimate. This happened after many users claimed that the issues came primarily from the Switch version of Sonic Colors Ultimate:
Refunded Sonic Colors Ultimate on switch. If you plan on asking for a refund Nintendo actually is willing to give it since apparently they are aware of the issues now.
Please let this be known.
