A few more details regarding the release of Sonic the Hedgehog Remastered: iOS users who purchased the previously available version of Sonic the Hedgehog will receive the remastered version in an update.
Also, the soundtrack is completely remastered in order to give players the highest quality version of the soundtrack possible. Christian “Taxman” Whitehead has said, “The arrangements are identical to the originals, using FM synthesis. But they have been put together in a DAW environment and given an actual mix as opposed to simply recording the existing music. The Drum samples are sourced from the original synthesiser so they’re super clean and crisp too.”
The Game Developers’ Conference has brought with it some great news for SEGA fans who use Android and iOS.
A new version of Sonic the Hedgehog will be released with widescreen support, solid 60fps gameplay and a new time attack mode brought to you by Christian Whitehead, the man behind the recent Sonic CD port.
No release date has been announced yet but a North American price-point of $2.99 has been confirmed. Rumours are also circulating that Sonic 2 will also be ported in this way.
Also announced are Puzzle Pirates which appears to be a pirate-themed MMO and House of the Dead Overkill: The Lost Files which appears to be a tailor-made for mobile gaming take of the Overkill formula.
