SEGA’s announced that Sonic CD is indeed to be released, following a slip by Major Nelson earlier in the week.
The reworked title, which is based on the 1993 classic will be released on PSN, XBLA, PC, iOS, Android and Windows 7 this winter.
The new, 2011 version will include the original Japanese soundtrack and also bring with it Metal Sonic and Amy Rose.
“Ask any Sonic fan to name their favourite games, and Sonic CD always ranks near the top of their lists,” said Sega West digital business VP, Haruki Satomi.
“Sonic CD marks an important chapter in Sonic’s history, bridging the gap between his oldest adventures and his new digital exploits like Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode I. We’ve made sure the re-mastered edition has everything that Sonic fans want to see with all of the original colourful classic zones.”
Sounds great, and we don’t even have to plug in a huge CD player next to our console to play it. Bonus.
