Quick aside: we've seen some graphical issues that were caused by an emulator which is unfortunately outside our control.— Katie - MiniKitty (@KatieChrz) September 5, 2021

Some of the bugs players have reported online are due to the use of an illegal copy of the game running on a PC emulator. However, GameXplain and Nintendo World Report have confirmed they have seen severe bugs in the Nintendo Switch version of the game running on the Switch itself and not an emulator.
"Quick aside: we've seen some graphical issues that were caused by an emulator which is unfortunately outside our control," added Chrzanowski.
GameXplain tweeted a video showcasing a variety of glitches they have encountered on the Nintendo Switch versions of the game.
"There's a lot of confusion surrounding how buggy Sonic Colors Ultimate is on Switch, so we've put together a compilation of glitches we've encountered ourselves on actual Switch hardware," said GameXplain.
"The video contains both glitches we encountered during normal gameplay, but some also require specifics steps to be performed and are less likely to be encountered accidentally."

Nintendo World Report via Twitter said the bugs they have encountered are happening while playing on the Nintendo Switch and not using an emulator. However, they have to do specific steps to get the most extreme glitches to occur.
"Over a full playthrough roughly five hours in length, our reviewer did not experience glitches of this severity," said Nintendo World Report. "That playthrough was not done in one sitting, and the game was closed and re-opened at least once in between play sessions."
Some reports claim in order to the worst glitches to occure players have to open each of the game's world maps then quitting out of them. This affects the game's stability, causing the issues seen in videos posted online.
