    My guess is they're waiting until the PS4 and Xbox One are out to release a new version of the games. After all, Sonic 1-3K are on XBLA and PSN so it would seem redundant to most consumers even if the port quality of those versions aren't that great.

    It really would, and offereing them as an update patch won't make them much money. Well, I hope they release the games on Vita too, cause I want to buy them, but am not ready to buy PS4 yet.

    The big thing I'm curious about is how Taxman and Stealth will handle 2P modes. I don't think any Retro Engine game has utilized multiple players at once, let alone on mobile.

    EDIT: More screens.

    Really minor stupid nitpick, but is it just me or is Sonic's 1 up icon wrong?

    But still this (and the SASRT ios port finally) is great to hear. Can't wait to see more.
     
  6. Yup that's Sonic 2 all right

    Can't wait to see what kind of goodies we get bundled in though. I'm hyped

    Please for the love of god when SEGA starts porting classics to PS4 and XBO, drill it into their heads that we want these 2 versions of Sonic 1 and 2 to be our console ports!!

    Oh god I'm sooooooo fucking hyped for this, god who knows what Taxman and Stealth did to Sonic 2!

    Btw, does anyone know how well Sonic 1 TaxStealth sold?!

    It'd probably be hard to get a good grasp on how well these versions sell since these are just updates to games that have been released for quite a while. I haven't seen any numbers personally but I'm interested to know too.

    I'm so looking forward to some Special Stage screens/footage.

    I certainly hope the animations are smoother for them. Didn't some of the older mobile versions (pre-iPhone) have extra frames for the special stages?

    I'm sure this will be fixed (because lord have we pointed out some nitpicky things that were cleaned up in Sonic 1 mobile) but I hope the landmass in the background is touched up a little or the background aligned so the cloud wraparound doesn't show up.

    I'm pretty limited in what I can mention about Sonic 2 right now, but when the Press Release says that the game runs widescreen at 60fps, that applies to all aspects of the game... wink wink, nudge nudge.

    I'll bet on actual 3D then, as there's no way you drew 60 frames per second worth of Special Stage tubes. Unless it's all tweened animation.

    Maybe they're just that dedicated to getting it right. :v:

    Looking forward to further info!

    One massive downside to the Sonic CD remake was that its console versions had much less involvement from Taxman since there was no way in hell he could have so many versions released by 2011. So the fact a console version hasn't been made announced yet has me guessing both Taxman and Stealth will have much more involvement with the console and PC versions. Plus Microsoft got rid of the patches fee so that'll help matters. Having rumble added to the android version via patch was really cool.

    Now if only those two games can be update with Google's implementation of Game Center so we can get leaderboards and achievements! :specialed:

    I'm guessing there's gonna be a compilation of the widescreen games on PS3/360/One/PS4, thus making the wait kinda worth it. I hope the Vita gets the compilation too. Be nice to have those games on vita.
