Sonic 4 Episode 1 will be available on XBLA, amongst every other platform, this October, as indicated, rather humorously by Dom Carey of Microsoft UK PR over twitter.
“ZOMG! Sonic 4: Episode 1 dates for October 13th on Xbox LIVE. Bring it on Robotnik (*sigh* Eggman)!”
How’s that for an announcement of this year’s arguably biggest downloadable console title?
Coincidentally, its coming to iPhone first, on October 7th. The Wii release follows on October 11th (October 15th in the EU), PSN on October 12th (October 14th in the EU), and the XBLA gets a worldwide release on the 13th. Those pesky iDevice fanboys will no doubt post spoilers to ruin Sonic’s triumphant 2D return for the rest of us.
Here’s the most recent gameplay video to tide you over till October.
