A Couple Stage Names Disclosed; Tails Playable After All?
It looks like fans who were disappointed a bit when we told you about Kellie Parker shutting down prospects of the two-tailed fox being playable yesterday may have hope again. We’ve just received word of achievements for Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II via the website XBOX360Achievements.org, and it now appears Tails may be playable solo in-game, in some form.
From the list below, we direct your attention to the I Love Tails achievement, which nets you 10G for playing as Tails 50 times. If that’s not an indication Tails will be available solo, it may be for a multiplayer mode. We will obviously seek clarification, but this is why we said yesterday not to lose hope yet, as Sega tends to say one thing and then another down the road.
Other noteworthy items from the achievements include the carryover of the Sylvania Castle Zone name from Japan to domestic shores. A few fans had noticed the name for the first stage when Famitsu published its first look at S4:E2 last week. We also know from that preview White Park will likely be the name of the hybrid snow mountain and carnival stage. A third stage name, Sky Fortress Zone, is also revealed from this achievement list. It also appears there will be a final boss beyond Metal Sonic for Sonic and Tails to conquer, and those red rings you saw in our batch of screenshots earlier today may be the key to unlocking that.
