Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 news.

It’s been well over a year since we saw the release of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 and fans have been waiting for a word (any word) on the upcoming Episode 2. Finally we have heard some news. During an interview with Gamespot, Ken Balough, Digital Brand Manager for SEGA, it was revealed that the game will be coming sometime in 2012 and a teaser trailer was also released.

It seems the team working on Episode 2 have taken on a lot of what the fans have said about the first episode and are making adjustments to the second episode, even changing the graphics engine, as well as the physics engine. This is a strange concept, to fully change the engine considering it’s an episodic game, but I believe this is will be a welcome change. Personally playing and completing Episode 1, I felt that the physics and the control of Sonic didn’t feel how it should. The fact that Sonic stopped dead in he’s tracks when you stopped holding the right button felt completely foreign to me, and it shouldn’t, considering i’ve played many Sonic games. I think they hit the nail on the head with the classic levels in Sonic Generations and am hoping that Episode 2 has more of a feel that is present in Sonic Generations.
