Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I is Sonic's Welcome home

Set shortly after Sonic & Knuckles; Sonic the Hedgehog 4 feature’s Sonic in an epic battle with Doctor Eggman (aka Dr. Robotnik) and his Death Egg space station. When Sonic prevails, he does what every hyperspeed blue hedgehog in sneakers would do; he takes a break! He parties with his pals Tails and Knuckles, then sets off to explore new territories and new adventures. But the ever wily Dr. Eggman didn’t go down with the Death Egg ship — rather, he’s been planning and plotting his revenge, ever since. That’s the thing about these supervillains, they never stay down! Thankfully, whether you have a Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, or the iPhone, you’ll be able to get your hands on Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I, and keep Eggman at bay! Sonic 4 is ready for download on WiiWare, Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and iTunes as of October 11th in the U.S., and it’s worth every bit. Take a look at IGN’s review

Sonic & Knuckles hits Nintendo’s Virtual Console

Sonic & Knuckles hits Nintendo's Virtual Console

Every Monday, Nintendo offers gaming fans new and retro titles to purchase on their Nintendo Wii Virtual Console. Today’s adventure in the U.S. is one of the greatest Sonic creations of all time; Sonic & Knuckles. For years, the game was subtitled by fans as “Sonic 4”, but everyone now knows that the true Sonic 4 will be available summer 2010. Sonic & Knuckles was originally on the Genesis, and used this cool “lock-on” cartridge allowing you to connect the older Sonic games, opening new content. Today’s downloadable game features some recreated emulation, and Sega brilliance, so that if you’ve also downloaded Sonic 1, Sonic 2, or Sonic 3 to the virtual console, you can connect them in virtual land. All for just 800 Wii Points. Take a look at the game in action

Special Sonic Classic Collection to the Nintendo DS

Special Sonic Classic Collection to the Nintendo DS

If you’re going to ask my personal opinion, I think that the best Sonic games are the classic 2D games – that means two things; (1) I’m incredibly psyched about the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and (2) I am absolutely in love with the upcoming special Sonic Classic Collection for the Nintendo DS. The collection includes Sega’s first three Sonic games and Sonic & Knuckles, as well as a tin, art cards, and a Sonic figurine. Unfortunately (for me) as of right now, the collection will only be available in Spain and Australia, but Sega has not ruled out a wider distribution.
