Sega has officially announced that Sonic CD is getting a re-release. It’s not just coming to XBLA either. Sonic CD will also be available on the PSN, PC, Android, Windows Phone, and iOS for both the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad.
According to Sega, the game will sport “enhanced widescreen graphics”, iOS exclusive features, and trophies/achievements. Perhaps the best news is that Sonic CD will have its original Japanese soundtrack.
The trailer is a bit perplexing. It shows Sonic, as he appeared in Episode 4, chasing after Robotnik as an image of Metal Sonic appears in the background. Then he goes into the past and we see Sonic CD footage. Could this be a sign of things to come for Sonic 4 Episode II? It seems rather deliberate, but who knows.
Sonic CD is scheduled to release this holiday season. It will be playable this weekend at the Microsoft Booth at PAX in Seattle.
