  • 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.

    More information is available at Sega, Sonic Retro, and The Sonic Stadium.

      I bought sonic one but the on screen controls were a nightmare, as big of a sonic fan I'll get it on ps3 or wii I think apple should invest in an oem game pad made just for iPhone

      the sonic 2 version was perfect for the iphone, but the fact that it lacks a save feature is enough to totally turn me off from it

      @ro0oney If you Google "Kega Fusion" and "Hacktube," you might be able to play them on your computer ^_^

      Or, you can search "genesis4iphone" in Cydia and play them on your phone!

      It's 2d and all prerendered, so no reason it wouldn't be identical. The only difference being the iPhone version has 2 exclusive levels.
