Now this isn’t anything like official, but it does look very much like that Sonic 4 is due for release within the next couple of weeks, although that depends if a tweet from a Microsoft PR is enough evidence to convince you or not. Personally we’re ready to believe anything that tells us we won’t have long to wait, but that’s just us.
CVG reports that said PR – Dom Carey – tweeted this earlier: ‘ZOMG! Sonic 4: Episode 1 dates for October 13th on Xbox LIVE. Bring it on Robotnik (*sigh* Eggman)!’ We’d like to know why Microsoft allows people to reveal secrets like that, and in such childish language, but there you go. However, following a teeny bit of digging, it turns out that he had read the news on IGN. D’oh, CVG.
IGN say that the game will be available on both PSN and Xbox LIVE on 13 October and for the Wii Shop Channel on 15 October. It ‘will be priced at 1500 Wii Points on WiiWare, 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live Arcade, and $14.99 / £9.99 / €12.99 / AU$19.95 on the PlayStation Network,’ they say. To celebrate, here’s a video of the Casino Streets Zone.
