At the Game Developers Conference 2013 today, SEGA dropped some news for fans of the old school fun known as Sonic the Hedgehog. The original version of the game has been remastered to run natively on Android devices and is expected to be available in April for $2.99. Hopefully the combination of sensors in modern smartphones and tablets, combined with some touchscreen controls, will prove to be a powerful combination with a game that did such a good job of portraying a sense of speed. Some gameplay video is expected to be released so that may give us a better idea of what to expect. SEGA also indicated they are working on Sonic 2 and progress is on schedule.

‘Tis the season to be jolly and famed video game developer Sega is certainly trying to get into the holiday spirit by offering some great deals for some of its popular titles for those of us here in North America. Between now and January 3rd, gamers will find games such from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Jet Set Radio and Total War Battles between 99¢ and $1.99. Of course you’ll want to make sure your device has enough space to hold each game and you’ll want to set aside an hour or two (or two or three or four) in order to have time to play the addicting titles, but hey– it’s a nice problem to have, right?
Hit the break to see the full list of titles and the Play Store links for purchase and download.
Sonic lovers can rejoice since Sega just released Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II in the Google Play Store and NVIDIA TegraZone. It’s optimized for Tegra 3 devices and delivers a near console-like experience that you won’t find on any other mobile platform. Thanks to NVIDA’s Tegra 3, it has dramatically higher quality textures, better lighting and glow effects, and objects that are absent from other mobile versions. It’s the most technically advanced mobile version of the game, and you will find it’s a near mirror-image of the PS3 and Xbox versions. Just take a look at the images below to see the difference (click images to enlarge).
Sweet– SEGA has formally announced a new Sonic The Hedgehog game is on its way to the Android Market and NVIDIA’s Tegra Zone sometime in 2012. The game— titled Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode 2– will feature optimized graphics and gameplay for Tegra 2 devices. Moreover, SEGA will feature an “enhanced” version for Tegra 3 tablets… and eventually smartphones as well. As a proud owner of a Tegra 2 device (Motorola Atrix 4G), I can’t help but have a huge smile and anticipation for this game to be formally released. Be sure to hit the break for the full presser.
Now this is some cool news! SEGA has announced they will be bringing its classic Sonic CD game to Android. SEGA says the game is coming to “mobile phones and consoles everywhere” later this year. This announcement also says the Japanese soundtrack will be included with this re-release, which is a good thing in my opinion. The re-release of Sonic CD will be making its public debut at the Microsoft booth at PAX Prime in Seattle, August 26–28, 2011.
“SEEEEGAAAAA!” OK, I’ve got that out of my systems now. Seriously though, this will be an awesome classic to check out on a mobile device. If you need to jolt your memory on this game you’ll find a video after the break (comparing the US and Japanese soundtrack). The full press release from SEGA is included as well for your reading pleasure while you listen to the soundtrack. I know I’m excited to check this out, are you?
