Out on Steam; Soon on PSN; Mobile Release Details Revealed
Welcome to Episode IIsday.
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II was released first to Steam early this morning. It should be available to Playstation Network users today as well. Tomorrow, the game rolls out to XBOX Live and, as we learn in a report from Dutch website SegaOnline, Android devices with NVIDIA Tegra 3 chips. On Thursday, the iOS rollout begins, according to the report.
We also have some price points for the mobile game. SegaOnline’s report cites a €5.49 price point for S4E2 on both Android and iOS. In American dollars, that would put it at about $7. So it appears that while console prices will stay at $15 for a while, the mobile price will be even more reasonable than upon Episode I’s release. UPDATE: Indeed, Sega has confirmed a $6.99 price point for the mobile editions of S4E2. In the UK, the mobile price will be £4.99.
As before, TSSZ will afford two reviews of Sonic 4: Episode II. Ryan Bloom will review the console edition, while Louis Balzani will tackle the mobile edition. Look for both reviews shortly after the full S4E2 rollout.
