Sega CEO Hajime Satomi says he wants to improve the quality of their games moving forward. That could mean a lot of things. It's nice to hear, but what they do next with their games is the real answer.
Sonic The Hedgehog Becomes SEGA’s Android Debut Game
SEGA fans should prepare themselves: Sonic The Hedgehog, the SEGA Genesis classic game, has been released for Android platforms. The game is now available on the Google Play store for $2.99/£1.99/AUD$2.99, and plans to give fans a whole new look at Sonic’s optimised world. It features widescreen support and exclusive features, just for mobiles, and the all-new-update allows gamers to unlock Tails and Knuckles as playable characters for the very first time! Sonic The Hedgehog is already available as an iOS title, and the new update is being offered to users for free. This means that anyone who has the game for the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch will be able to enjoy the same experience as Android users.
Following in the same footsteps as Sonic CD in 2011, Sonic the Hedgehog has received a rather robust overhall, with the main added feature being widescreen support. Players will even be able to zoom through the different Zones at 60 frames per second (fps). As well as the ability to play as favourite characters Tails and Knuckles, Sonic the Hedgehog for Android features a remastered soundtrack, new leaderboards and achievements, and an all-new Time Attack mode.
You can currently buy the SEGA classic game for £2.35/$3.57 from the Google Play store and it’s a great chance for players to relive a little bit of gaming history as the fastest Hedgehog on the planet.
