Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 will be the last episode released in the downloadable game series, Sonic Team producer Takashi Iizuka has said.
SEGA has confirmed that 2012 will see the fifth Summer of Sonic convention.
An official online store for Sonic the Hedgehog merchandise in Europe has opened, SEGA and RHM Solutions have announced.
Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II will finally be released in 2012, over a year after Episode I hit digital stores in October 2010.
SEGA can't continue relying on nostalgia as it hasn't been successful at it, according to the publisher's president Mike Hayes.
It's been nearly a year since Sonic 4: Episode 1, but SEGA West CEO Mike Hayes has revealed that details on Episode 2 will arrive 'very soon'.
Sonic the Hedgehog is the reason I got into gaming. I'm not trying to over-dramatise that, as I'm sure if it wasn't for him there would be some other 90s mascot that triggered my lifelong hobby. But for me it was Sonic, and that means something.
There's no denying that the blue hedgehog is one of the video game industry's most enduring characters, but his path has been bumpier than the Green Hill Zone itself.
SEGA of America and Europe president Mike Hayes has conceded that Sonic 4: Episode 1 had its problems, but that the next instalment should rectify them.
'A lot of really great ideas' going into the second episode, says SEGA.
