SEGA has today released 18 new screenshots from the Xbox 360/PS3 version of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1‘s newly revealed Mad Gear Zone. The European version of the new Mad Gear Zone trailer together with release dates and prices for Europe have also been officially revealed in a post at the Sonic City Blognik, which match up with IGN’s report on Tuesday.
As you can see, Mad Gear Zone will contain plenty of death traps that will require all of Sonic’s speed and the players skills to manoeuvre through. Slicer, Shellcracker and Asteron badniks are all out in force to stop Sonic and they’re all placed in awkward spots, just like in Sonic 2′s Metropolis Zone, so you’ll need your wits about you.
You can check the screenshots out below and discuss in the comments section.
