According to ToeJam & Earl Productions, they were going to include ToeJam and Earl and it's sequel as well, but Sega wasn't very fond of the series, so they included Sonic the Hedgehog and it's first sequel instead, to make up for the emulation issues of the Playstation 2 version of Sonic Mega Collection Plus which failed.

It should also be noted that Golden Axe 3 suffers badly from poor sound emulation compared to all the other games, and a few had minor graphical modifications, such as in Sonic the Hedgehog when the screen sometimes flashes when Sonic is underwater and in Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium when the screen sometimes flashes when a character was poisoned.
