Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 is officially live on all platforms. Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, and even the iPhone and iPod Touch can now run Sonic 4. This is truly an exciting time as the Blue Blur is going back to his glory days in an attempt to recapture the fandom of Sega’s past. If you haven’t played the game, you really should. It’s an excellent successor to the Sonic games of old, and it really provides a gaming experience that feels both retro and fresh.
Earlier today, Sega addressed the fans and stated on their blog that this is just the beginning, and that things “will only get better from here.” Sega is clearly talking about Episode 2 of the game, which is likely to be in the works as we speak. As a longtime Sonic fan, I am very excited to see Sega moving forward with this long overdue project.
Though many gamers have already gotten through the Sonic 4, there are those who have yet to collect all seven of the game’s Chaos Emeralds. Sega mentioned, “As many people have already discovered, there are also a couple very special things waiting for you if you collect all seven emeralds in the game!” So there you have it. If you haven’t gotten all seven of these colorful jewels, you might want to.
