Okay so hot off the heels of the first video for Sonic 4: Episode 2, we now have 7 new screenshots with some additional information to come with them. Firstly in terms of information it has been confirmed by Sega that Tails will not be a playable character for 1 player mode and will only be playable as the second player in Co-op and while that is little disappointing at the same time I don’t think there’d be that much of a demand to play as Tails than if it was someone like Knuckles. Also coming in is a list of achievements for Sonic 4: Episode 2 thanks to Xbox360Achievements. It has also been reported via Sonic Stadium that the names of some of the zones in the game have been confirmed/translated. and here is what they stated on the website: “We also know the name of three more stages, castle stage we’ve been seeing in a lot of screenshots: Sylvania Castle Zone, Sky Fortress Zone and the snow stage, according to translations from Sonic Retro and SEGAbits, is called White Park Zone.” Okay so now onto the last bit of news that comes in the shape of the new screenshots.
While a lot of these screenshots don’t necessarily show off anything we haven’t seen before, it does however continue to illustrate how pretty the game looks and show off some more additional enemies and certain gameplay scenarios. Also if you look at the first screenshot you can see an unmistakable red ring just chilling ahead of Sonic & Tails. And if you’ve been playing Sonic games recently then you would know that those red rings were first made apparent in Sonic Colours and then continued in Sonic Generations, so one can assume that their appearance in this new game will be to increase the game’s replay value and possibly unlock some new content for the game. Only time will tell.
