Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II detailed


Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II has been revealed over a year after the original episode’s release. This upcoming downloadable sequel will be designed with similar methods to the 2D Genesis/Mega Drive games instead of the more modern 2D handheld Sonic games on the Nintendo DS or Sony PlayStation Portable.

Detailed with the reveal of the title is that Metal Sonic and Sonic’s sidekick Tails will both be included in the game. Along with this SEGA has stressed that the gameplay and graphics engine are improved greatly over the original episode, something a large majority of the fans were very vocal on being disappointed with on Sonic the Hedghehog 4: Episode I.

Another major announcement is that it will be arriving sometime in 2012 to the Xbox Live Arcade service on Xbox 360, PlayStation Network on PlayStation 3, iOS, Android and other various mobile platforms. It is notable that this will not have a WiiWare release on the Wii console, although other platforms are likely, nothing is being discussed at this time.

After the break is the teaser trailer that was released exclusively through GameSpot.
