Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Remastered Heading To iOS & Android

Sonic-The-Hedgehog-2-RemasteredNow joining Sonic The Hedgehog and Sonic CD on touchscreen devices is the highly rated speedy Mega Drive sequel, Sonic The Hedgehog 2. Unlike the prior iOS release of the 1992 classic, this updated port of Sonic 2 is built from the ground up by Christian Whitehead - a 60fps emulation-free offering of our favourite blue hedgehog's antics.

The fact that Whitehead has been called in again to work on the game's sequel is more than enough to soothe retro gamer's nostalgic hearts. Very much like his previous creations for Sega, we're expecting all of the original gameplay and physics to remain intact whilst offering a much more fluid and larger viewport of the retro game.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Remastered is set to be made available sometime next month on both iOS and Android devices. Apple iPhone and iPad owners who have already purchased the older emulation release of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will also be pleased to hear that this remastered offering will replace their older app for free.
