Though the surprise was spoiled a few days ago, Sega has confirmed that Sonic CD will hit consoles and mobile devices later this year. The game will feature the original Japanese soundtrack, and is coming to PC, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, iPhone and iPad, Android and Windows phones.
The downloadable versions will include Achievements/Trophies, a widescreen presentation, and "special iOS features" -- whatever that means. Attendees of PAX Prime this weekend will get a look at the game at Microsoft's booth. Larry Hryb (aka Major Nelson) announced the showing and spoiled the surprise a few days ago, but it's good to know that other platforms will get the coveted cult hit.
"Ask any Sonic fan to name their favorite games, and Sonic CD always ranks near the top of their lists," said Sega America VP of digital business Haruki Satomi in the announcement. "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 colorful classic zones."
