Sonic CD Hits iOS, Xbox Live and PSN Tomorrow
An all-time classic and quite possibly the best installment of the series — Sonic CD is being released on multiple platforms tomorrow.
Sega announced the Sega CD version of Sonic will be released on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network and iOS. Other mobile devices such as Android will have to wait until 2012 before it gets the retro classic in their marketplace.
This won’t be the first time Sonic CD was re-released. Back in 2005, Sega released their second Sonic Collection on the Gamecube, which featured Sonic CD.
Although, for the first time ever, players will be able to choose either the Japanese or US soundtracks, as they blast through seven levels. And if that wasn’t enough, Sega is throwing in Sonic’s, cool — yet annoying — sidekick Tails, as a playable character once they beat the game for the first time.
“Sonic’s 20th Anniversary has been a banner year for him – as well as for everyone at SEGA,” said Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America.
“Gamers around the world are rediscovering their love of Sonic through his adventures, new and old. Whether you’re a long-time hedgehog aficionado looking to enjoy a favorite moment from Sonic’s past, or a brand-new player who wants to join in on the fun, there’s no better place to start than with one of Sonic’s most celebrated games, Sonic CD.”
Sonic CD will cost about $2.99 when it hits the digital stores.
