Great news for fans of the world’s fastest hedgehog with news from Sega today that it will be bringing Sonic CD to iOS devices. Originally released for the Sega CD system in 1993, the classic game featured the first appearance of such fan favourites as Metal Sonic and Amy Rose. The game will have music from the original Japanese soundtrack, and will be available for download from the App Store in late 2011.
Sonic CD for iOS follows the classic story of the original game, with Dr Eggman planning to cause chaos and take control of the planet by stealing Time Stones from the Little Planet. It’s up to the player to control Sonic as he speeds through levels and travels back in time while fending off Eggman’s robots in a bid to recover the Time Stones and save Amy Rose from his mechanical twin, Metal Sonic! The iOS game will also have some brand new special features that have been added especially for this version.“Ask any Sonic fan to name their favorite games, and Sonic CD always ranks near the top of their lists,” said Haruki Satomi, Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America. “Sonic CD marks an important chapter in Sonic’s history, bridging the gap between his oldest adventures and his new digital exploits like Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode I. We’ve made sure the re-mastered edition has everything that Sonic fans want to see with all of the original colorful classic zones.”
