Episode II arrives for Sonic The Hedgehog 4

The saga continues: Sega is pleased to announce the release of Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II, proving that – with a little planning – episodic content really can work.

This time around, everybody’s favourite blue hedgehog teams up again with best mate Miles “Tails” Prower, to take on two legendary rivals.

Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at Sega of America explains the developers had a little help when creating the game:

Sonic 4 Episode II is very special because we’ve integrated community feedback into the game. We have some of the most loyal and dedicated fans and I hope they enjoy this next chapter in the Sonic 4 saga.

…and those loyal, dedicated fans are in for a treat, if they’ve picked up a copy of Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode I. Owning both games will unlock Episode Metal, an exclusive story that’s only available to gamers who own both games on the same platform. It’s a reworked version of Episode I which aims to shed some light on just how the ‘hog survived the end of Sonic CD!

So. Want in? Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II is available right now on the PlayStation Network and via Steam, with an Xbox 360 version coming later this week. Android devices with NVIDIA Tegra 3 support will also get their own version, and the game will pop up on the iOS App Store later this month.
