Sonic fans have been a little worried that Sega had forgotten about them and the promised 2nd episode of Sonic the Hedgehog 4. Well, worry not: Sonic the Hedgehog 4, Episode 2
is coming and it could be coming very, very soon.
The game is rumored to be launching this Spring and a specific date of 5/16/2012 is being mentioned in some places. That information comes from a shortlived posting that appeared on the Xbox Marketplace and has since been removed. Sega isn’t saying a thing at this point, but an official announcement could happen any day now.
The news of the game’s potential release is also accompanied by the first screenshots of the game, which you can check out below. As always, Sonic looks great when presented in his classic, 2D form.
