    ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II’ speeding to us sometime in 2012

    SEGA officially announced the second episode of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 today, which will be released sometime during the 2012 that is rapidly speeding toward us (much like Sonic himself). In addition to Microsoft and Sony’s online stores, Episode II will come to Apple’s App Store, the Android Market and Windows Phone 7′s iteration of Xbox LIVE.

It only stands to reason that the rest of the NES exclusives are going to be on the way soon — but at least these blockbusters will make it out of the exclusivity pit so that the rest of the world can have access to them on the go.
