Sonic Colors, Sonic 4 Win Nintendo Power Awards

One an Editors’ Choice, Another the Readers’

There’s good news out of Sonic Stadium today concerning two of last year’s four major Sonic releases.  Both Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I and Sonic Colors have been recognized in the 2010 Nintendo Power Awards, out now in the March 2011 issue.

The gorgeous Colors received an award for Best Graphics by NP editors.  The big surprise is one you wouldn’t expect reading some community forums the past several months: Sonic 4 won the Readers’ Choice award for best WiiWare Game.  That means enough people voted in the awards to take Sonic 4 to the top–even beating out Cave Story, which the editors bestowed the same honor to on their end.

It’s a great honor for both games, though someone will surely demand a recount on the latter.  Thanks to krazeeKidd102 for sending this in.  If you have news to share, be sure to share it with us by clicking Send News Tips at the top of every page.
