The newest availiable Sonic game for the newer-gen consoles — Sonic Riders — just had a new suprise announced in regards to it: A port to the PC!
Like Sonic Adventure DX and Sonic Heroes before it, Sonic Riders will now be released in the near future on the Sega PC platform! While not many details are availiable yet as to if it will have any new features, or what the system requirements are, what we do know is that it’s a sure thing in the future, and will be on retail for $19.95 USD. If you were thinking of picking up Riders at all, this is probably your best chance at it, especially if you don’t have any of the consoles that the game is availiable for.
No release date has been announced yet, but when it is, be sure we’ll keep you informed, right here at Sonic News!
UPDATE!: Pointed out by Gamerguy at Sonic World, Sega updated thier site with the release date for the PC version – November 2006; around the same time as Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis (GBA), Sonic NextGen (PS3/360), and Sonic Rivals (PSP). Seems to be a good time to pick up a new batch of Sonic games.
Sonic Riders is an SSX style racing game featuring traditional Sonic characters , as well as some new ones, originally released February 21, 2006, for the GCN, PS2, and Xbox platforms. More details are availiable on the game at TSS Gamepage on Sonic Riders.
