Sonic CD Hits The App Store Today, Sega Teases With New Trailer



Sega is set to release its latest Sonic the Hedgehog port for iOS today with the critically acclaimed Sonic CD — a title which first made its debut back in 1993 on the Sega CD. But just in case you weren’t already excited enough, the company has also released a teasing new launch trailer.

Sonic CD is set to hit the App Store later today, and you’ll be pleased to know it’s a universal app that will play nicely with both your iPhone and your iPad. It’s already available in the New Zealand store, and it will steadily make its way to the U.S. and the rest of the world later today. In the meantime, why not check out its new launch trailer:


Here’s what you’re in for:

Sonic travels to the distant shores of Never Lake for the once-a-year appearance of Little Planet – a mysterious world where past, present, and future collide through the power of the Time Stones that lie hidden within it.

Sonic arrives only to find the once beautiful world imprisoned beneath a twisted metallic shell. His arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman, has come for the Time Stones and with them, will soon have the power to control time itself!

In order to put an end to Dr. Eggman’s nefarious schemes, Sonic must use the power of Little Planet to travel through time; breaking Dr. Eggman’s hold over the future by destroying his machines in the past and recovering the missing Time Stones!

The release coincides with the launch of Sonic CD on Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Network. However, instead of the $4.99 price tag that console gamers will get, iOS gamers can enjoy a special introductory price of just $1.99.

    Japanese Once Ruled VideoGames and produced the BEST games ever. This is certainly one of them; which is simply a work of PURE GENIUS LEVEL.

    I’m not exaggerating. You REALLY have to play this game to understand how every platform games should reward the gamers with surprises, secrets, challenges, exploration, intrigues and most importantly, true entertainment fun. Sonic CD really have outdone the original Sonic 1 and 2.

    I suspect quite a handful of reviews here are made by friends of the devs involved in porting this game, but i’m not one of them. My review is honest.
    And my verdict is: Forget Angry bird, forget Infinity Blade, you can miss all those, but you should NEVER miss Sonic CD.
    EVERY human being should spend a few hours to play this game atleast once in their LIFE TIME.
