Oh Ye of Little Faith?

Quick on the heels of ChuChu Rocket!’s release to Android systems domestically last week, word broke over the weekend that Sega of Japan re-released Sonic Advance to several Android OS powered mobile phones, but only in the land of the rising sun.

Website Siliconera says it happened Friday in Japan, at a cost of ¥415, or about $5.31.  The setup is similar to what one would see with iOS enabled Sega games, with a touchscreen enabled control mechanic.

There’s no indication the game will come over to domestic Android marketplaces, or if we may see a port to iOS enabled devices.  But the good news here is Sega’s continual willingness to re-release at least some of its catalog to Android users, users who have long been starved in the face of Sega re-releases to iOS.  We will keep track of any further developments on this front.  Thanks to VizardJeffhog for tipping us.  If you have news to share, be sure to share it with us by clicking Send News Tips at the top of every page.
