UPDATE: Operationgamer17 points out that apparently it’s been gone since at least yesterday as of when TSSZ first mentioned it on their twitter. Also, Ming Ming Yuigahama clarified that the game is actually not on the US Google Play store either (I misunderstood that part, my mistake) and even snapped a screencap of what she sees when you access it:

And she points out in the same post that this is not so unusual and may simply come back on Monday. We’ll see what happens. Also I forgot to mention that Komodin first brought that part up. Thanks again go to both for the clarification.

It has come to our attention that Sonic Runners has been removed from the US iTunes store. This was first brought up on our forum by Operationgamer17. Our own writer VEDJ-F afterward mentions that it’s still up on the UK Google Play store, and another member Soni mentions it’s still up on the Canadian iTunes store.

Another member Ming Ming Yuigahama also linked to and confirmed that the game, while indeed gone from the US iTunes store (the link now redirects you to the iTunes store if you have it installed saying it’s not available), is still available on the iTunes store in the UK, Canada, and Japan. Ming Ming Yuighama also shows that the game is still up in the US Google Play store under “SEGA Corporation”.

So far we have no idea what the reason is for the game’s removal from the US iTunes store. We’ll have a follow-up report if we hear more.

Thanks goes to all the users mentioned above for their help in checking the stores to see if the game is still available in their respective regions.

  1. i think the game is having some trouble issues right now because this game been out for a year and i don’t know what is going on with these technical reports but it might be a glitch :/

  2. I emailed the customer support about this issue on January 7th, and they said:
    “Hello,

    The Sonic Runners app has been temporarily removed from the app store while the team performs maintenence on the app. Unfortunately, I don’t have a definite date as to when the app will return to the US store, but hopefully it will be back soon. We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing you.”

  3. Am I the only one who never really had any problems with this game? Guess it’s because I’m not an android user. I hear those guys have to put up with the WORST when it comes to their version of this game.
