Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 is finally showing up online! Took Sega long enough. I mean, it has been almost a year and a half since Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 was released. Still, that could be seen as a good thing since the longer the development time, the better the chances that the game will just blow our minds.
Sega decided to build the excitement with lots of screenshots and a new trailer. The trailer actually shows game footage this time, with lots of cooperation between Sonic and Tails. The screenshots, meanwhile, show new areas and enemies. No sign of Metal Sonic, even though Sega’s said this episode is supposed to have Sonic facing him.
The trailer is where you finally get to see a hint at Metal Sonic. He shows up in the initial introduction and very briefly at the end. The rest of the video is dedicated to showing actual gameplay footage.
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 will be out pretty soon. Sega’s hoping for a May 2012 release window. It’ll once again appear on the PS3, Xbox 360, Windows Phone 7 and Windows, as well as on Android and iOS devices. It won’t show up on the Wii Shop Channel though, so Wii owners will have to go to another system to continue the adventure.
