Just over a week ago, Sega announced that Sonic 2 remastered would be released as early as November of this year. A few people speculated that the game might include bonus or extra content since Sonic 1 remastered include a lot of features cut from the game as well as additional characters.
This however was speculation… Until now.
In a fact sheet posted on their Press Vault site, Sega have confirmed that Sonic 2 Remastered will include exclusive content for the mobile release, however they’ve not gone into details regarding what the content is.
They’ve also re-confirmed the release date to be November 2013, and stated that this will be a 1 player experience only… so no 2 player online Vs mode?
