The second episode in Sonic 4 has just had some fresh screenshots revealed which shows a little more about the game and what to expect. If you have been following my previous coverage then you will know how hyped I am for this title, as unlike some, I really enjoyed Sonic 4 Episode 1.
The more die hard Sonic fan out there were quick to point out the physics issues in Episode 1 which the team have taken on board and ironed out, along will several other fan requests. However, it seems that the fan feedback has also had a severely negative effect on an Episode 3 being developed according to Digital Spy and Takashi Lizuka from Sonic Team.
Takashi told Digital Spy “We are looking forward to hearing the feedback from the users for Episode 2, but we are currently not planning to release another episode,” He also added “We just want to see how the users accept this episode.”
So while Sonic will be reunited with Tails in Episode 2 it seems that for now he won’t be getting reunited with Knuckles in a possible Episode 3. This makes Captain SEGA at ST HQ a very sad man as I actually loved the first episode and judging by the latest screen shots, Episode 2 is looking just as good.
So Sonic fans, if you really do want to see an episode 3 of Sonic 4 then go out and buy episode 2 when it gets released later this year.
