The Sonic cycle continues! After the quite excellent Sonic Generations, Sega is finally ready to roll out the continuation of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 with Episode II.
Episode I had some problems, but it was certainly successful enough to warrant a sequel. The new episode will be spin-dashing to Xbox Live Arcade, the PlayStation Network, along with iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7 devices sometime in 2012.
Check out the teaser trailer below.
