Archie Story in SSS #3 will Lead Into Game

Website Screwattack.com is pegging a Summer release timetable for Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, based on a preview of Archie Comics’s Sonic Super Special Magazine #3.

Most are already aware the game will include a related story.  We had previously thought out loud whether it could be the traditional tie-in comic that Sonic games usually get, and hence see release around the time of the issue’s release.  As it turns out, ScrewAttack’s Ryan Conway clarifies the story will be a prologue to the game.  Given the Spring release of the comic, the article says the game should be out “sometime this Summer.”

So, while the game should not be out around SSS#3’s release, it will follow shortly thereafter.  Of course, nothing official has been disclosed by Sega yet, so we’ll be sure to pass along those details once made available.
