More of What’s Coming Inside

We’re a few short hours away from the iOS release of Sonic Jump in the West.  But the game has already been released in New Zealand, and that means we can relay plenty of new details on what to expect.

First, according to the game description, Tails and Knuckles are playable in-game.  A total of 36 levels are packed in, including Green Hill Zone, and some new mountain and jungle areas.  An arcade mode, which is essentially a survival mode, is also part of the game.  Collecting rings will be necessary to unlock new features, but those rings can also be bought with real money if a player wants to jump right in (no pun intended.)  Sega is also working on free updates to the game that will include more levels and more characters.

Screenshots from the App Store are available below.  We’ve also relayed a long gameplay video.  Thanks to AugieD for tipping us on Twitter.
