Plenty of Crush 40's old material appeared as unlock-able music tracks in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''. However, while Jun Senoue returned to create a large portion of the game's modern styled remixes, Crush 40 didn't make any new songs for the game nor remix any of their old songs themselves. In 2012 they released a 4-track EP titled ''Rise Again'', comprised of 3 new original tracks as well as the aforementioned ''Song of Hope''.

Three years later, in 2015, they released a new album titled ''2 Nights 2 Remember'', featuring 4 new original songs and a slightly edited-down [[LiveAlbum concert recording]] from March 30, 2014 in Tokyo, Japan.
