Sonic CD Arriving on (Almost) Every Platform in the WORLD
One of the few entries in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise that hasn't been over-released to death is the famed Sonic the Hedgehog CD. To many gamers, that title stands out as one of the most enjoyable games in the series, and there are a number of individuals who genuinely believe this is the best title in the Sonic franchise. While that may be debatable given that little thing called "opinion," there's still no denying that Sonic CD was a fresh installment in Sega's long-running franchise, and an awesome one at that.
Aside from its original releases on the Sega CD and PC, we've only seen the game pop up on the GameCube and PlayStation 2 as part of Sonic Gems Collection. Microsoft recently spread word that Xbox Live Arcade would be the newest platform to welcome Sonic CD. Suffice it to say, people got excited. Of course, a few gamers, particularly those who don't own the Xbox 360, were a bit bummed out that no other console manufacturer had confirmed the downloadable retro title.
Thankfully, that changed earlier today. It turns out that Sonic CD will be speeding onto more than one download platform. Though release date and pricing details are currently under wraps, it has been confirmed that the Sega CD original will also be landing on PlayStation Network, PC, iPhone, iPad, and Windows Phone. The game will feature Achievements, Trophies, and other new features, which should come as good news to many of you.
As you may have noticed, there will be no Wii love with Sonic CD. Kind of makes sense considering the fact that Nintendo itself hasn't been showing the platform much love as of late. Stay tuned for more details on the return of Sonic CD when Microsoft reveals more info about the Xbox Live Arcade version of the game at PAX.
