October 21, 2013 - Written By Cory McNutt

For our mobile gaming fans out there, SEGA has just announced a line-up of five great titles coming to the mobile world, and two of them – Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Sonic The Hedgehog 2 – are coming to the Android platform.  SEGA of America Vice President of Digital Business Chris Olson said:

As the audience for mobile gaming continues to grow, we’re proud to expand our portfolio of digital titles with a wide array of genres.

SEGA’s critically acclaimed, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, is finally making its way to the mobile platform, allowing you to race to the finish line as Sonic and other legendary SEGA All-Stars have to cross land, sea, and air, in transformable vehicles.  This is the sequel to the original 2011 hit mobile game and continues to bring all of the competitiveness back in the fast paced kart-racing game that includes many improvements and new features with local four-player and online races.  SEGA has also included all of the necessary social integration (we must have that) into the new game…With a Winter 2013 release date you will soon be able to start your engines!  The original Sonic & All-Stars Racing made our top ten racing games for 2013.

One of the most critically acclaimed games of all-time, “Sonic The Hedgehog 2,” is now re-mastered for the Android mobile platform with a scheduled November release date.  Existing and new Sonic fans will be able to appreciate this definitive update to the classic game.  This is the game that first introduced Miles “Tails” Prower and some of the most legendary environments in Sonic history.  There are special stages, as well as classic levels, such as Casino Night Zone and Chemical Plant.  The entire game has re-mastered audio and upgraded visuals – running at a rate of 60fps (frames per second), for a very smooth viewing experience.

The other three mobile games from SEGA – Demon Tribe, Rhythm Thief & the Paris Caper, and Go Dance – are only being released in the iOS format.  The two that made their way to our beloved Android platform should offer you gamers some new and exciting competition among you and your friends.  SEGA promises to give out more information as their release gets closer.
