Sonic 4 Hits XBLA October 13th

Sonic the Hedgehog fans, rejoice! (Or tremble in fear.) Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 has an official launch date and price. Your favorite blue, sneaker-clad, ring-toting hero will touch down on Xbox Live Arcade on October 13th for 1200 Microsoft Points.

Sega has promised that Sonic 4 will bring the series back to its roots, hoping that gamers will forget the previous 10+ years of bad spin-offs—no pun intended. The game features old-school sidescrolling platform action and 2D sprites to bring back that classic Sonic flavor. Sonic is the only playable character that has been announced so far, but our fingers are crossed for more…

Sonic 4 has also been announced for iPhone/iPod, PSN, and Wii, supporting motion control on the latter two platforms. On XBLA and PSN, you’ll have the ability to play the game in full 1080p. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait a couple extra days for the Xbox version:

  • iTunes App Store: October 7
  • Wii Shop Channel: October 11, 1500 Wii Points (Oct. 15 EMEA)
  • PlayStation Network: October 12, $14.99 / £9.99 / €12.99 (Oct. 13 EMEA)
  • Xbox Live Arcade: October 13, 1200 MSP
