We have a bit of a soft spot for Sonic here at Social Gadget (soft enough to nearly forgive the horrendous games the series spawned in recent years). When Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I was released for PSN and Xbox Live Arcade in October 2010, faith in our furry blue friend was fully restored… and now he’s back again!
This week saw Sony announce an official release date and pricing for Episode II for PlayStation Network.
May 16th is when the game lands in the European store, priced at £9.99/€12.99. Those who already have purchased Episode I will be treated to exclusive access of a new episode starring Metal Sonic upon purchase of Episode 2. Xbox 360 owner can enjoy the retro fun too with the title being release on XBLA, the same day for 1200MSP.
Do you love Sonic as much as we do? What were your highlights or lowlights of the series? Let us know in the comments below.
