Episode One of SEGA's latest attempt to bring Sonic back into our hearts will drop early-mid October, depending on what platform you intend to use to save furry little animals from their robotic prisons.
Sonic 4 is an attempt to get back to the old 2D, fast-paced platforming days. Back to when you could almost feel like you were speed-running a level on your first time playing it. But after several 3D screw-ups, SEGA has some convincing to do.
Those forgiving enough to give the once-proud hedgehog another chance can download him on the following dates:
PlayStation Network ($19.95) on October 12.
Nintendo WiiWare (1500 Wii Points) on October 11.
The game will also be available on the app store in "early October", for an unspecified price.
At these prices, SEGA might be asking for a bit of faith. What do you think? Will you be giving it another go, or is this a "wait and see"?
