Sonic CD revealed for Xbox Live Arcade [Update: All versions announced, trailer released]


August 25th update: SEGA has officially announced the game, along with all it’s intended features and release platforms. This version will support the expected Achievements and Trophies for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions respectfully and will feature the European/Japanese soundtrack that many fans tend to prefer. A very notable new inclusion is also the option to switch between the Sonic CD and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 spindash.

Sonic CD will be available for XBLA, PSN, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Windows PC digital download, Android and Windows Phone. It will be available for purchase in late 2011. The trailer is after the jump.

Original post: Larry Hyrb, blog writer for Microsoft’s gaming division, has announced that Sonic the Hedgehog CD is available to play at PAX Prime 2011 for Xbox 360. A fan favorite in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Sonic CD was a premiere title for the SEGA CD/MEGA CD add-on; it has been sparsely re-released on platforms prior to this. No further information has yet to be posted.
