Sonic 4 iPhone To Get Game Center Support

Sonic 4 iPhone To Get Game Center Support

SEGA’s Digital Brand Manager Ken Balough has just announced at the SEGA Forums that SEGA will be submitting a free update to Apple on October 15th for Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 on iPhone, which will add Game Center support.

Hi Everyone,

Hopefully you guys had a terrific 1st day enjoying Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode I on the iPhone!

That said – I’d like to let everyone know that on October 15th, we are submitting to Apple a free update for Sonic 4 that would give it Game Center.

So stay tuned as we add this new feature.


No exact details were given as to which Game Center features will be supported, but we expect the game will gain the online leaderboard and achievement features that other versions of the game have. We’ll update you when more details are made available.

  1. @ Egg and Chris K.
    I didn’t know what Game Center was until I came across this news either XD Mainly because I don’t have an iPhone. Anyway, I posted a link at the bottom of the article to Apple’s website where you can find more info.

    Like I said in the article, I expect they’re going to add support for online leaderboards and achievements, which are features that other versions of the game have.

  2. Why did they release the old build for the iphone?! They didn’t include any of the updates they’ve been working on for the past few months! It’s still really hard to make Sonic’s feet spin! Plus, the invisible wall is still present at the end of each act! What is going on?!

  3. Game Center is the social gaming network by Apple for iOS devices like iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
    It’s been released with the iOS 4.1 on september 8th 2010 for iPhone and iPod touch and it’s coming to the iPad on november this year.

    In a few words, Game Center does the same things that Xbox Live and PlayStation Network do for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
    It allows you to have a friends list, to invite a friend to a game, to play multiplayer online, to unlock achievements on your profile.

  4. No Retina Display mentioned?

    I find it unbelievable how SEGA have missed out the retina display. If this game had retina graphics they would be awesome, but now on my iphone the game looks blocky.

  5. That sounds good, I’ll have more of a reason to play it in future. It’ll suck if they add achievements which are only counted from the day of the update. I’ve already beaten the game entirely and I’m not going through that again.
