"SEGA® ANNOUNCES REMASTERED EDITION OF 2006’S SONIC THE HEDGEHOG™
April 1st 2015 – SEGA® America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd., today announced details of SONIC THE HEDGEHOG: REMASTERED™, a highly anticipated reworking of SONIC THE HEDGEHOG™ originally for Playstation®3 and Xbox 360®. The title, which debuted almost a decade ago, saw beloved video game icon Sonic the Hedgehog fight to save his newly reimagined world from the threat of Iblis – and of course, his oldest rival, Dr. Eggman. The title also featured the debut of fan favourite character Silver the Hedgehog, and the return of Shadow the Hedgehog, with their own playable campaigns. This reworking contains a huge number of updates to create the ultimate Sonic experience, debuting on Playstation®4 and Xbox One® systems soon.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG: REMASTERED™ will contain a tremendous amount of improvements from the original, taking full advantage of the next generation hardware. An overhauled lighting system and drastically improved textures provide a realistic, immersive adventure – and these advancements to the visual fidelity will run at an incredible 4K resolution and 60fps for the smoothest gameplay experience possible. The remastered edition also contains improvements to the core gameplay of the three playable characters, adjustments to level designs, and will include all released downloadable content from the original – including the “Very Hard Mode”, “Team Attack Amigo”, and “Boss Attack” DLC packs. Fans can also look forward to new cutscenes which expand the story beyond the original, and updated voice work.
“As we approach the 25th anniversary, I see no better way to celebrate by giving fans the ultimate Sonic experience”, said Takashi Iizuka, head of Sonic Team. “With the amazing possibilities the next generation of hardware has given us, we at Sonic Team feel it’s finally the right time to perfect this title and make it the best it can be. I hope everyone can look forward to revisiting Soleanna soon.”
When Dr. Eggman seeks to use the royalty of Soleanna in his latest plans for world domination, it’s up to Sonic and his friends to save Princess Elise (Lacey Chabert) and stop his evil schemes – but there’s more than just Elise’s life at stake here, it’s the whole world. Together with mysterious newcomer Silver, and his old rival Shadow, can Sonic stop the Flames of Disaster? "
