Update: It’s also seemingly out now on iOS.

Well isn’t this a surprise. Sonic Runners is actually out now on Google Play in NA (actually was dated for yesterday on February 25th, 2015). However, some phones don’t seem to be supported (my Samsung Galaxy Ace II x GT-S7560M seems incompatible).  And some who have got it to download have gotten this error message of maintenance:

  1. I got “This isn’t available in your country” so I guess it’s not out in Europe yet. Maybe later today or tomorrow on a Friday, it might come out. We shall see.

  2. Probably going to be a soft launch, like Sonic Jump Fever (originally). Also, SEGA once again forgets that Windows Phone exists.

  3. Android users; search for the .Apk, it works fine.

    In short; VERY fun little game, a lot more interesting than I feared it would be. 🙂

  4. Yay, HURRAY FOR CANADA! I just got it. Played it for a while, here’s some observations

    1. There is a energy meter system like in Sonic Jump Fever
    2. The game has a story: Dr Eggman is kidnapping animals…..stop him!
    3. There is Facebook account compatibility
    4 Characters seem to be unlocked as you move through the story
