Xbox Live and iOS players
will have their chance to return to Sonic CD tomorrow, with the
remastered classic launching on those platforms in North America. PSN
players in Europe will also get access to the title, though it won't
be available for American PlayStation 3 owners until Dec 20. By the
time Android and Windows Phone 7 owners get the title early next
year, pretty much everyone will have access except Wii owners (and
anyone who's waiting for an actual CD release).
This launch clip lets you
know what you'll be in for: a generous helping of fast,
brightly-colored gameplay with two soundtracks' worth (American and
Japanese audio, remember) of the bouncy, chuggy chiptunes Sonic
always did well. The game's priced at 400 MSP, or $4.99 on iOS; when
the PSN version arrives, that too will set you back $5. Maybe if
enough people buy and play the hell out of this rerelease, Sega will
have second thoughts about releasing Classic Sonic from his hellish prison outside of time.
