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.

Thanks to Woun at the SSMB for the heads-up!

  1. Wait, wait.
    Picture 5 lacks some extra blur.
    Are these screens from the old build?

  2. Wait one second >_>
    THIS IS EPIC…too bad I can’t say anything epic ; w;
    Splash Hill=Oh damn, did someone past a sign over green hill
    Lost Labyrinth=Start the Indiana Jones music
    Casino Street=SEGA just hit the jackpot

    But no witty banter for dis ; w; >_> No Im not gonna relate it to metropolis zone. You can use a good relate joke more than once -points at green hill joke-
    yaya

  3. CURSE YOU ASTERON!
    looks great, but i do wish they wouldn’t give away every level…I’d like to be surprised every now and then

  4. this zone is looking….erm….metropolished. <____<

  5. @ Kaoz
    o: Nao that you said that, they might keep it in mind for episode 2.

  6. @ Eggman123 I guess that’s because he’s not curled up? In all the other pictures, he has the blue blur when he’s curled, but not when he’s upright.

  7. @Lunar_Sonic96
    Asteron or keeping info secret? =o
    i suppose it didn’t help that the entire game got leaked in the first place, but still…it’d be nice to be surprised.

  8. @Eggman123
    I asked myself the same question?? Maybe they’re just using pictures they took a while ago…

  9. cool but i dont have enough for the xbox 360 version so im getting the ipod tuch version

  10. splash hill- oh god, did somebody vomit on green hill zone
    lost lab- I think indiana jones came through here
    casino street- yay vegas, now i can gamble as much as I want to
    mad gear- crap another factory
    I’m not a retarded fanboy, I’m just making fun of sonic 4. I think it’ll be epic and it will be awesome.
    HUGE JK!!!!!!!!!!

  11. @ ProfessorZolo
    After the delay they gave the normal running animation a blur, so Sonic looked faster.
    Check some LLZ screens as comparison.

  12. Super Metal Shadow says:

    With every stage this game looks even better!!!

  13. @ Kaoz
    Da hell is Asteron. xD I was talking about the keeping it secret. A leak is good every now and then, but revealing the whole game kinda gives less meaning.

    @ xyz723
    >_> You better not be talking about me buddy…

  14. *Chuckles*…”Peggy.”

    *Is shot down*

  15. Okay, this stage made my brain hurt…….
    Mostly because it kept on buffering, but thats beside the point.

  16. @Lunar_Sonic96 That starfish Badnik that originally showed up in Metropolis Zone

    @hook131

    You may think thats besides the point but in actuality its NOTTTTTT BESIDES THE POINT!

  18. Here’s my new Sonic storybook game called Sonic and the Little Mermaid.
    There’s two playable characters in game are Sonic and Amy.
    In the story: Sonic and Amy are going out on a date to the beach, they saw the mermaid fairly and makes Amy into a merhog, Sonic surprised at her, he would be come merhog too just like AOSTH.
    But the evil king wants Mermaid Fairly to be his queen but Sonic fights him to save Mermaid Fairly, but the prince appears to help them, It’s between Sonic and Amy to save the Mermaid Fairly from Evil King.
    Likely this would be easy game with all levels and bosses.
    The other Sonic characters are in this story like Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, Blaze, Silver, Cream and Eggman & others.
    It will be had two player mode for the other Sonic playable character besides Sonic and Amy.
    This game would be released for Nintendo Wii.
    Sonic and Amy will be closer to each other.
    Please, SEGA.
    So did you like my new Sonic game ideas?

    @Ryan: NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR IDEAS! You can’t keep pulling random Sonic ideas out of your ass and expecting the fans to like it and Sega is finally realizing that! If Sega is smart then it would be wise for them to lay off the storybook series
