Sega's announced the release
dates for Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, which for a game about an
impossibly fast urchin sure has taken its sweet time since the 2010
release of its predecessor. Not that we're complaining: if it's as
enjoyable, retro-friendly and ridiculous-animal-soap-opera-free as
the first episode, any time of the year is a good time for Sonic.
The game'll be releasing May
15 on PSN, and one day later on XBLA. IOS and PC versions of the
title have already been dated for May, with an Android version to
follow in June and the Windows Phone port to close off the
festivities in July. By which time, of course, console owners will be
well done with the game and starting to ask insistent questions about
Episode III. Sega can pack its games with as many hyperspeed woodland
creatures as it pleases; there's no keeping up with the Internet's
voracious hunger for new shiny things.
