In case you haven’t got enough Sonic the Hedgehog in your life, Sega have started teasing fans in Japan with the promise of a new free-to-play mobile game, Sonic Runners.
Famitsu have previewed the game and have eluded to the mechanics of the game pointing out that some old favourites return in the 2D side-scrolling runner including collecting rings and harassing Dr. Robotnik. The preview also explained that the game can be played with just one hand as Sonic himself moves forwards and players make him jump just by tapping the screen.
A Spring release has been given for the title which will drop for both iOS and Android, players will be able to spend real money to buy premium items with the game being free to download/play.
