Sonic 4 Casino Street and Mad Gear Gameplay Footage

Sonic 4 Casino Street and Mad Gear Gameplay Footage

SEGA’s Aaron Webber aka RubyEclipse appeared in CNET’s latest episode of preGame yesterday, where he talks about Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, as well as giving a demonstration of Casino Street Zone and Mad Gear Zone. Webber confirms what we all assumed, that the new playing card features in Casino Street Zone are from a refurbished Act 2 and that it will be an exclusive stage to the console versions. We can only guess that the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad version will still contain the pinball score attack stage seen in the leaked version of the game. Both zones look to incorporate plenty of careful platforming and not just speed, which should make a lot of fans happy. The recently seen map screen is shown again here, but this time it has a warp-hole above the island, which we assume is the E.G.G. Station Zone, in which the final battle with Dr.Eggman takes place.

To view the video, head over to CNET.

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


  1. “…that the new playing card features in Casino Street Zone are from a refurbrished act 2…”

    Gambling….in a Sonic game!?



  2. looks awesome, getting it for my ipod tommorow and for 360 next week XD
    and the bubble was blue/grey in sonic 1 and 2 and then elemental in 3 & knuckles =P

  3. I tried listening to the music for Casino Street Act 2. Sounds similar to the original, but I’m pretty sure it’s the one track that they’ve completely changed.

  4. The music actually sounded a little different, but I’m not sure as to which of the tracks sounded different. Saw this last night.

  5. ARGH, now I want this game!!! But I have to wait till the 13th (I do have all the consoles, but my 360 has 1200 msp in it so might as well use it.)

    PS The shields were blue between 1991-1999 and now the shield is green since Sonic Adventure

  6. @UltimateChaos

    Then get it the next day. Or get it in the afternoon so it’ll be 13 and a half. XD
    At least it’s not Friday the 13th. XP

  7. I HATE SLICERS!!!!!

    Anyway, I’m very happy how Sonic 4 has turned out in the end. Of course I may develop some nickpicks, But even still this is looking to a great new beginning. 😀

  8. wow it actually looks very good. Not perfect just yet, but im sure episode 2 will deliver the perfection.

  9. on closer examintation, since Ruby had a Chaos Emerald already, I believe that warphole may be the Special Stage.

  10. Shadzter is it okay to mention [spoiler] now since they already revealed it in that video liked in the article? XD

  11. That rep guy (Aaron?) is not very knowledgeable about his facts. The standard shield was originally blue in Sonic 1 and 2. Plus, he has always been known as “Eggman” in Japan. It’s just the fact that now they have a more accurate localization. But correct me if I’m wrong but I think that Sonic 1 actually came out first in the US (or wherever) before Japan – I don’t think that the dates coincided.
