Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Getting iPhone Release
Sega's much-anticipated upcoming game, Sonic the Hedgehog 4, has been revealed today to be getting an iPhone/iPod touch release, in addition to console releases. This has been rumored since the website
first went up this past February, as a graphic was found on the server relating to a possible iPhone release. This will be the blue blur's first premier game on the iPhone, alongside the previously released classics, Sonic 1
and Sonic 2
. (Oddly enough, there is no planned release for Sonic 3 & Knuckles at this time.) It is unclear whether this release will be identical to the console releases, or a watered-down mobile edition (as many cell phone games are). In addition, the release date, originally slated for Summer 2010, has now been changed to an even vaguer "late 2010."
Sonic 4 is the direct sequel to Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and the first game of the original series to be released in over 16 years, as well as the first to be released only as a downloadable title.
