Sonic CD Speeding Onto the Xbox Live Arcade
Written Monday, August 22, 2011 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Microsoft community man, Major Nelson has let slip that Sonic CD is on its way to the Xbox Live Arcade, bringing back the first appearance of hedgehog love interest Amy Rose and Metal Sonic (unless you count the version Sonic faced on the Death Egg in Sonic the Hedgehog 2) waaaaay back in 1993 on the ill-fated Mega Drive add-on, the largely pants Mega CD.
Here's the bit that gave the game away on Major Nelson's blog, announcing Microsoft's line-up for PAX Prime 2011 next week:
Xbox 360 Booth #432
Mass Effect 3 has landed… in the Xbox 360 booth! Come on by to check it out, along with a slew of Xbox LIVE Arcade titles: Trials Evolution, Skulls of the Shogun, Crimson Alliance, Splatters, Orcs Must Die, Ms. Splosion Man, Retro City Rampage, Sonic CD, War of the Worlds and Trine 2.
So, it looks like you'll be able to relive Palm Tree Panic, Collision Chaos, Tidal Tempest, Metallic Madness and all the other classic stages when Sonic CD launches on XBLA. Further details will presumably come out of PAX Prime 2011, although for now there's no date or anything further on Sonic CD. Stay tuned hedgehog fans!
