Sonic CD download this winter 04 September 2011
A port of probably the best ever Sonic The Hedghog game, 1993's Sonic CD for Mega CD, is heading to PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, PC, and iOS and other mobile devices before the end of the year. This was previously only available on PC and Sonic Gems Collection.
Apparently this was playable at the recent PAX Prime 2011 event. The port is being handled by an independent mobile developer but will feature tweaks and additional support for swipy fingers. By circumstance more than anything at this stage, it appears it will use the Japanese soundtrack and not the hideous US-remix that most people are familiar with.
The trailer probably isn't worth watching, but a note to publisher SEGA and "brand managers" on this matter: hey, stop trying to re-contextualise and appropriate a near 20 year-old Japanese-developed game in order to promote your decidedly tacky-looking new software. As much as you'd like to think you ain't, you are pointless.
