The Anniversary Mode of each title in Sonic Origins added nice accessibility features that will improve the experience, but the level selection is not readily here. That being said, it is available. Here is how to find the level select in each Sonic Origins game.

Sonic CD

As of this writing, we have not found a working code to get into the level select for Sonic CD.
