Sonic 4 confirmed for an official October 7th-15th landing on all announced platforms

Huzzah, Sonic 4 will be here October 7th through the 15th in all territories, on all announced platforms, iPhone be damned! The hedgehog may’ve fallen a tad short of the summer, however, Sega has allegedly confirmed through its official twitter that that Sonic’s first episodic DLC adventure will arrive everywhere just in time for…Halloween?

Above: Sonic 4 - Episode 1 = $15 / £10
iPhone App Store - Oct. 7th
Wii - Oct. 11th (Europe Oct. 15th)
PSN - Oct. 12th (Eurpoe Oct. 13th)
XBL - Oct. 13th

Whatever! A solidified release date is always good news, as that generally means a demo could potentially be coming to your console sooner than that (although, two weeks does’t leave a lot of breathing room for that.) Best of all, fans will finally get to weigh in definitivelty on just how much the color of Sonic’s eye color completely ruins the gamplay. I’m guessing it’ll range from "not at all" to "immensely."

Above: Not sure why, but I love this picture... Adorable!

    WTF SEGA!!! 1 episode from what I hear has only 4 ACTS 4 MOTHERFUCKING ACTS!!!! In order to get all episodes buyers will need to shell out 40 to 60$ for the entire game? Sorry as much as I love Sonic and I was looking forward to this 15$ an episode is way too steep. It should be more like 5$ an episode. I guess I wont be able to play a good modern day Sonic game anytime soon.

    I hope this satisfies the raging boner I've had thinking of Genesis Sonic coming back. You're a cock tease Sega, COCK TEASE
  • batmanboy11 - September 29, 2010 1:28 a.m.

    I hope its good.
  • thedonut - September 29, 2010 12:38 a.m.

    I'll get it when all episodes come in a bundle. I think it'll be worth the wait.
  • Tenfey - September 28, 2010 11:03 p.m.

    I hope they have a '& Knuckles' DLC lock-on attachment.
  • NappyAfro - September 28, 2010 10:49 p.m.

    If it's a DLC game, why would the demo come before the actual game. I dunno how other consoles do it, but trail versions of the XBLA games are available when the full game hit the marketplace.
  • AlmightyFuzz - September 28, 2010 10:49 p.m.

    Oh god dammit! Here's another game coming out in October that I really really want but can't afford! *sob* (Enslaved and Castlevania both come out on the 8th)

    Sorry for double post, but i really hope they bring back the classic Green Hill Zone music. i could listen to that stuff all day!
  • NightCrawler_358 - September 28, 2010 9:45 p.m.

    this is really cool. it might make up for the dissapointing LBP2 delay
  • Vulneratus - September 28, 2010 9:40 p.m.

    NICE!!!! oh dear god a water level!... if the music and timer is the same I might end up curled up in the foetal position while Sonic drowns... ... just too many bad memories...
  • bball42242442 - September 28, 2010 9:15 p.m.

    A) I planned on buying this the whole time but it's the same release date as Medal of Honor for PS3 owners.... So idk how much playing time this'll get. B) $15! Didn't they say there would be four episodes? Or was it three? Either way i think the episode thing is stupid and if it's gonna end up $45-$60 then they might as well have made it a normal game and not a downloadable one.
  • Redeater - September 28, 2010 9:01 p.m.

    I'm.....excited? That xbla Sonic Adventure release left a bad taste in my mouth. I didn't buy it but after playing the demo I had no clue what I was thinking 10 years ago. I know this game is a return to form but still.... Well lets hope for the best.
  • garjones79 - September 28, 2010 8:59 p.m.

    download the trial. like it? buy it. dont like it. no loss. whats to complain about? :)
  • Fusionmix - September 28, 2010 8:57 p.m.

    Ugh, a water level. But if they make it awesome, I'm going to be jealous of people who own consoles.

    @Lionzest7 The only way I think you'd feel "cheated" or the game "short" is to forget how we all used to play Sonic games back in the 90s. You can blow through those old Genesis game pretty quickly if you don't take the time to explore and collect everything, which I think we all used to do naturally. $15 seems like a high price, but not once you consider you're buying a full old school Sonic game at a fraction of the price.
  • thefreakysurgeon - September 28, 2010 8:31 p.m.

    CAN'T. EFFING. WAIT!!!!!
  • Lionzest7 - September 28, 2010 8:31 p.m.

    I think this is great, hopefully I don't feel cheated if the episode is too short. Though if it's good like the originals it might warrant tons of playthroughs to make up for the length.
  • cj12297 - September 28, 2010 8:20 p.m.

    for $15 i'd want a full download game not just an episode
  • myguyfromthe80s - September 28, 2010 8:17 p.m.

    Awesome News My wife and six year old son will be most happy SEGA! U,D,L,R A+B+C
