Okay so after getting the first set of screenshots of Sonic 4 Episode 2 on February 14th Sega have just recently released another 9 screenshots as the first proper “official” screenshots after first set were leaked online by Microsoft (but when is Sonic game info not leaked online? Its been happening for years lol). These screenshots still look pretty cool and showcase some fancy-looking graphics for the game and I’m loving it so far. But again this isn’t the game in motion so all us Sonic fans are still waiting for an animated visual confirmation that the game is better than the last in every way shape and form and we hope that the developers have committed to their promises to improve the gameplay, animation and physics. Luckily apparently its been mentioned via the Sega Blog that the first gameplay trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 will be out on Thursday February 23rd at 9am US Pacific Time. So that’ll be a date to keep open in your books if you’re a Sonic fan.
Anyway here’s those new pictures:
Well as I said in the last Sonic 4: Episode 2 blog post these screenshots look very promising and have a very realistic and detailed style when compared to the more cartoony and cel-shaded look of the previous game. Now don’t get me wrong, Sonic 4 Episode 1 looked great, but this game is on another level and both episodes couldn’t be more different in a lot of ways.
