Sonic 4: Episode II finally reaching gamers in 2012

Sonic the Hedgehog returns in a brand new game for 2012, Sega has confirmed.

Fans of lightning-fast cocky blue hedgehogs will be pleased to hear that Sega will finally be providing them with a new Sonic 4 game this year.

Sonic 4: Episode II will eventually see the light of day in 2012, a whole two years after the first episode reached the shelves.

Sega is promising a completely reworked physics engine and all-new character animations for Episode II, making it a significantly different proposition to its predecessor.

In a newly released trailer for the title, it is revealed that Dr Robotnik's evil creation Metal Sonic will be back to take on the swashbuckling spiny superhero, who will be ably assisted by the two-tailed fox Miles "Tails" Prower.

Gameplay will again centre on the recreation of the classic 2D titles made so popular in the early nineties.

While Sonic fans have been eager to get hold of the next instalment for some time now, they can at least satisfy themselves that Sega has been listening to their feedback during the break.

"After twenty years in action, it's clear that Sonic hasn't slowed down one bit," said Sega of America executive Haruki Satomi.

"The first entry in the Sonic 4 saga was a major success. We've listened to the fans and been hard at work making sure we recapture that same spirit of fun in Episode II. We hope the fans will enjoy it."

Sega returns to Sonic 4 after releasing Sonic Generations, a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the franchise, which saw the hero revisit classic levels from the 1991 original, including Green Hill Zone and Chemical Plant Zone.

The plotline switched between the 2D and 3D versions of Sonic, but the idea for Sonic 4: Episode II appears to be to try and amalgamate both versions to create something new.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801253547-ADNFCR
