Tails, Knuckles, and Big the Cat confirmed for Sonic 4: Episode 2

Sega has been fairly quiet about the second chapter of Sonic 4 since its announcement last month.  The publisher revealed yesterday that Tails, Knuckles, and Big the Cat will be added as playable characters.  Whereas Sonic 4: Episode 1 stuck close to the roots of Sonic 1 and 2, Sega hopes to use the game’s additional characters to herald back to the play mechanics of Sonic’s later Genesis titles.

…in the spirit of Sonic 3 & Knuckles, each playable character will have their own unique abilities to reach areas inaccessible to other characters.”
-Danny Opacich, Sega of America

I loved the alternative routes available to Knuckles when playing Sonic 3 & Knuckles. I hope that Sega will be able to maintain this unique gameplay in Sonic 4: Episode 2 .  How do you think Big the Cat will translate into 2D?  You can catch Sega’s official press release after the jump.

 

April Fools!

  3. Has Big ever been in any 2D Sonic games? I’d actually like to see that. Froggy!
