Announced back in December, Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II is finally ready for prime time. The next iteration in the Sonic series includes our favorite blue mammal along with his furry friend Tails. The game launched on the PlayStation Network and Steam today but will hit the Google Play Store tomorrow and the App Store on Thursday.
Android support for STH 4 Episode II seems to be a bit of a mystery as it was reported back in December to feature support for mobile devices powered by the NVIDIA Tegra mobile processor, however, in today’s Sega blogpost, they only state support for Tegra 3 devices. Hopefully this isn’t the case as there aren’t that many Tegra 3 devices available — I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.
Episode II was hugely influenced by user feedback and will reward players who have purchased Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I and II (on the same platform) with the exclusive chance to experience Episode Metal, a special unlockable story that features one of Sonic’s greatest foes.
You can check out the trailer below for a sneak peek at what you can expect from the next great chapter in the Sonic story. Be sure to keep an eye on your respective app store just in case Sega lets the game slip out a bit early — you never know. SAYYYYY——GAAAA!
