Sega Will Bring The Original Sonic The Hedgehog To Android Next Month


The original Sonic the Hedgehog, originally released in 1991 on the Sega MegaDrive, has already been ported to mobile platforms (iOS), but it’s yet to make its debut on Android. Fortunately for Sonic fans, that’s about to change. At the Game Developer Conference in San Francisco this week, Sega has confirmed that its classic platform will be hitting Google Play in April.

The original Sonic needs no introduction; it was a huge success for Sega back in the ’90s, going up against Nintendo’s Super Mario series for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. And its 2013 remake for Android will be even better.

Although you’ll still get to play all the same levels from the original game, Sonic the Hedgehog for Android is going to be completely remastered for modern, touchscreen devices. Sega promises it’ll have a “rock solid” frame rate, wide screen visuals, a new time attack mode, and a remastered soundtrack.

Sonic the Hedgehog will be hitting Google Play next month, and we’ll let you know as soon as it’s available.
