SEGA has announced today an Episode Metal lock-on for part II of Sonic the Hedgehog 4. It’s a special unlockable story that will only be available exclusively to gamers who have the original Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I and Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II on the same platform.
In Episode Metal, SEGA tout it as experience of an all-new adventure that bridges the gap between Sonic CD and Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II! You get to take control of Sonic’s greatest rival, Metal Sonic, across four reworked Acts from Episode I as he rebuilds himself to challenge Sonic once again in Episode II.
Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II, and Episode Metal, will be available on May 16 for the Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points. The game will also be available on Android devices, iOS, PC digital download and Windows Mobile Phones later in the year.
