Sonic 4: Episode 1 has been confirmed to be released October 13th.
The spikey blue hedgehog was slated for a Summer release but was pushed back to late 2010 earlier this year. The reasons why it was pushed back was due to the iPhone’s control’s not being implemented properly, as Sega wanted to release all versions of the game at the same time.
Episode 1 will be avaliable on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1200, so quite a lot.
If you haven’t played the previous games made in the 90’s, or wish to replay them, achievements included, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles are all in the Xbox Live Marketplace for just 400 each.
