SEGA has kicked off the new year with an announcement that Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II will be coming to an iOS device near you (as well as virtually every platform under the sun, it would seem) some time in 2012, as a follow-up to the award-winning Episode I. Complete with all-new character animations and a totally revamped physics engine, Episode II will expand the Sonic 4 storyline with new areas to speed through and new challenges to face. And as the teaser video shows, a certain friend of Sonic’s who just happens to have two tails also makes an appearance!

"The first entry in the Sonic 4 saga was a major success. We’ve listened to the fans and been hard at work making sure we recapture that same spirit of fun in Episode II. We hope the fans will enjoy it."
