Sonic Jump, which was recently released exclusively for mobile devices, has received its first update via iTunes for the Apple platforms (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch). This update adds a new level to the story mode as well as new playable characters that can be unlocked. And if that’s not enough, we’ve got some juicy news for Android users as well – read the full story after the *ahem* jump!
The new update gives the player access to Blue Sky Zone, a previously inaccessible area consisting of 12 story mode stages and a new endless arcade level. This level will see you bouncing off balloons while simultaneously trying to avoid the attacks of the robotic Batbots and Spinners that are out to see Sonic plummet back down to earth in defeat.
Additionally, Amy Rose becomes unlockable thanks to the update, though you’ll need to start saving up those rings in order to play as her! There’s another unlockable character on offer as well, who you can achieve through the new Global Challenge mode which sees players working together to reach the moon. Who is it? Well… you’ll just have to find out for yourself!
In other Sonic Jump news, it seems that the much-discussed Android version – which at first was meant to be coming out this month, but then seemingly disappeared from SEGA’s product page entirely – is still in with a chance of a release. A user on Twitter got in touch with the game’s developer, Hardlight Studio, and received this response:
Make of that what you will, but it looks like things are more positive than not regarding an Android version in the near future. Stay tuned to TSS for all the latest on whether or not it eventually makes its way onto Google Play!
