Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 dates announced

Finally the date that all Sonic fans have been waiting for is finally here. The mixture of 3D environments but with side-scrolling 2D action, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 will be released on this October and here are the formats that the game will be released on as well as their dates.

iTunes App Store (for iPod Touches and iPhones): October 7th (price not yet officially announced)

Wii Shop Channel: October 11th for 1500 Wii points ($15)

PlayStation Network: October 12th for $14.99

Xbox Live Marketplace: October 13th for 1200 Microsoft points ($15)

Lately Sonic games have been such a great disappointment to fans i.e Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog for 360 and PS3. Here’s hoping that bringing Sonic back to his side scrolling 2D roots will win the fans back to show that Sonic has still got it.
