Sonic 4: Episode 1 Finally Gets a Release Date

September 29, 2010 Written by Mike Hartnett

Over the past year, we’ve seen everything from incessant excitement to fanboy rage regarding the delay, as well as many changes that have supposedly come to Sega’s latest installment in the Sonic franchise, Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 1. Well, the wait will soon be over, as we finally have a release date for you!

The release dates for each platform are as follows:

  • iTunes App Store on October 7th. (Price TBA)
  • Wii Shop Channel on October 11th. (1,500 Wii Points)
  • PlayStation Network on October 12th ($14.99 / £9.99 / €12.99 / AU$19.95)
  • Xbox Live Marketplace on October 13th (1,200 Microsoft Points)

It will certainly be interesting to see just how far Sega has gone to try and please fans through the many supposed “tweaks” performed on the game over the past few months, and if they will really be enough to lure those longtime Sonic supporters back in. Be sure to stay tuned to PlayStation Lifestyle, as we’ll be sure to have our review for Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 up shortly following the release.
