Sega is delaying the release of Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 until sometime towards the end of 2010. Here is what this extra development is going to be used for, straight from the press release.
“The additional development time will allow for more careful focus on the design of each level and to provide additional polish that an important game like this demands, ultimately providing fans with an unrivaled classic Sonic feel.”
Here’s hoping they’re taking the extra time to fine tune the game and make sure they don’t add any stupid pink fluffy secondary characters. Maybe Sega finally has realized that they have an important franchise rebooting opportunity here and don’t want to mess it up.
