Sonic The Hedgehog Remastered Android/iOS Details And Release Date Confirmed

sonic the hedgehog genesis

SEGA's classic Sonic The Hedgehog has been available on both Android and iOS platforms for AGES (I'm sorry), so the news of an updated, remastered version might not exactly feel like news - however with a slew of new features and a completely remastered soundtrack, you might just want to keep reading...

In case you missed it before, we've already covered Sonic The Hedgehog's handheld update here at RetroCollect - but as we're comitted to bringing you the very best news first, we thought we'd update.

Firstly if you already purchased Sonic The Hedgehog from either the Google Play Store or Apple's App Store, then you will soon be advised of an update - granting this updated version and all its features for free.

What are these features, i hear you ask?  Well how about a new time attack mode, updated boss patterns, the addition of a spin dash, a remastered soundtrack and a smoother framerate for special stages?

Oh, and new playable characters.

The new version is being handled by noneother than Christian "Taxman" Whitehead (the hero responsible for the remastered Sonic CD port) - so it's safe to say the title's in safe hands.

The iOS update/Remastered title will be available from tomorrow, and (from Christian Whitehead himself) “Thursday 16th PST for Android, US & Canada so you’ll have to wait a bit longer sorry.”

Bought this as soon as I saw it pop up on the Appstore, very slick port and plays very nicely! I'd be surprised if the die hard fans don't like it. You can also turn the spin dash off if you want that original experience :)
