Sonic the Hedgehog 4?! FINALLY!

 

Sonic 4!

Sega is bringing  oldschool Sonic back! It’s been 16 years since a numbered Sonic game was released. The original game came out in 1991, its sequel in 1992, and Sonic 3 followed two years later in 1994. Since then the “little blue blur” has been featured in tons of other  games, all of which being 3D. The most successful Sonic series to be released since the numbered series is Sonic Adventure; the first game of the series was released on the Sega Dreamcast in 1999. Most other Sonic games sadly have received mostly bad reception, both from critics and from gamers. The 3D style Sonic games have been directed mostly at the younger generation of players, whereas the oldschool side-scrolling Sonic games were fun for all generations and remain lots of fun to this day. 

The new game will feature updated graphics from the first three games, with 3D character models. The levels, of course, will remain 2D (as far as we know currently at least). 

The game will be released in episodes, with a rumored few levels at a time being released as one episode. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 will be released this summer. The game will be all downloadable content, and will be available through WiiWare, PlayStation Network, and Xbox LIVE Arcade.

Sega is slowly revealing characters and enemies making a comeback into this new game on its official website. Check back regularly to get all the details, and read the news updates as they come.

While you’re waiting these next few months, it might be a good idea to dust off your old Sega Genesis to sharpen your high-speed side scrolling skills once again.

    I have as yet to play any of the Sonic games. I might just have to give this one a try.

    Now, if they would just bring back Pac-man, I might know how to play a game.
