Many gaming sites, ourselves included have often wondered why the folks over at Sega can't just stick to the classic formula with new Sonic games. Well, wonder no more, cause the blue blur is back!
In a direct sequel to it's 16-bit Genesis predacessors, Sonic the Hedgehog 4 is on its way to all of the major consoles in the form of downloadable content. Sega also said that the game will be arriving on a 4th platform, but is not saying what it is just yet.
What's even more interesting is that the title of the game is officially dubbed as, "Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1" suggesting that it is part of an upcoming episodic series. Only time will truly tell though.
Sonic the Hedgehog 4 will release this summer.
