Sega Announces Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II For Android – Coming In 2012

Sega has announced its next installment of the popular side-scrolling classic Sonic the Hedgehog. After receiving award-winning success with Sonic the Hedgehog 4 episode I, Sega has listened to user feedback and is proud to announce episode II. Episode II features all-new character animations, a reworked physics engine, expansive storyline, and a familiar furry sidekick. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 episode II is set to hit the Android Market sometime in 2012 and will feature support for mobile devices powered by the NVIDIA Tegra mobile processor, including an enhanced version for Tegra 3 devices.

Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America, had this to say about our favorite ring collecting mammal:

After twenty years in action, it’s clear that Sonic hasn’t slowed down one bit. The first entry in the Sonic 4 saga was a major success. We’ve listened to the fans and been hard at work making sure we recapture that same spirit of fun in Episode II. We hope the fans will enjoy it.

We’re unsure whether or not the Tegra support means a limited exclusivity, but we do know the game will be released into the Android Market, as well as the Tegra Zone. Stay tuned for more information on when this new iteration to a classic favorite will be hitting the market. Until then, check out Sega’s latest trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 4 episode II.
