Sonic CD arrives in time for Christmas
Sega today announced that fan favourite Sonic CD will be released on multiple platforms from tomorrow.
Gamers can relive the story of the 1993 original, which sees Dr. Eggman again, attempting to take control of time by stealing the Time Stones from Little Planet. Sonic must speed through levels and travel through time whilst fending off Eggman’s robots to recover the Time Stones and save the smitten young hedgehog, Amy Rose.
This version will include the original Japanese and US soundtracks as requested by the fans, and, for the first time, the ability to play the game as Sonic’s best friend Tails, unlockable by clearing the game for the first time. Sonic CD also features the first appearance of Metal Sonic, one of Sonic’s most enduring nemesis.
“Sonic’s 20th Anniversary has been a banner year for him – as well as for everyone at Sega,” said Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at Sega of America. We agree at The Digital Fix - check out our review of Sonic Generations here.
“Gamers around the world are rediscovering their love of Sonic through his adventures, new and old. Whether you’re a long-time hedgehog aficionado looking to enjoy a favorite moment from Sonic’s past, or a brand-new player who wants to join in on the fun, there’s no better place to start than with one of Sonic’s most celebrated games, Sonic CD.”
Sonic CD is available this Wednesday on XBLA (400 MSP), the PlayStation Network (£3.59) and iOS for £2.99. Sonic CD will be released Android and Windows Phones in the New Year.
