Hold onto your butts. Sonic the Hedgehog CD is getting a port to the Xbox 360’s Live Arcade service, and the first place anyone will get to play it is at the Penny Arcade Expo Prime event in Seattle.
Microsoft community liaison Major Nelson let slip details of the game’s existence on his blog today. It will be situated at one of the Xbox 360 Booths (#432) and be sat alongside a slew of other Live Arcade titles such as Trials Evolution, Trine 2 and Retro City Rampage.
SEGA has been extremely quiet on the possibility of bringing Sonic CD to current generation console platforms. It has been one of the most requested omissions from recent Sonic series compilations, and there had been murmurings that the company was interested in a homebrew port of the game on iPhone some time ago.
Nothing official has been said about the publisher’s intentions to bring back the Mega CD classic however – until now, that is. Are you going to PAX Prime? Be sure to go and play the ever-loving love out of the game, and let us know on TSS what you think of it! The Expo runs from 26th – 28th August 2011.
