February 4, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

For all you gamers who have been looking forward to a Sonic game that carries over the spirit of the Genesis fan favorites, here’s some bit of news. Sega’s new Sonic The Hedgehog game, Sonic 4 is soon arriving as a downloadable episode on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and Wii. Significant is the fact that Sonic 4 will be a 2D game with 3D visuals.

The game, being made with the subtitle Episode 1 ‘The first part of a much larger adventure’, comes with a theme that could appeal to all. A brand-new adventure episode, the new one seeks to follow up on the Sonic & Knuckles game  and is expected to be as popular.

Sega is, in fact, looking keenly a the downloadable platform for Sonic 4 too, as earlier the strategy had proved to be successful with titles such as Capcom’s Mega Man. Besides, Sega’s strategy for a 2D game with polished 3D graphics comes as part of a desire to bring in a Genesis-era Sonic game.

Going by the looks of it, the new game is poised to be on top of all Sega adventures. We are just about close to picking ours.
