Update: Sega have issued a press release which confirms both games are also coming to Android devices!

You might remember how Sonic 1 recently got remastered?’ It was dubbed the ‘stealth-tax’ version of the game, contained tons of improvements and was generally dubbed ‘awesome’ by all? Well along with this came the promise that Sonic 2 would also recieve a remastered release. That time is coming very soon.

According to touch arcade. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will get it’s ‘remastered update’ on iOs before the end of the year. As with Sonic 1, Sonic 2 will recieve improved framerates, visuals and audio enhancements. Dare we also suggest hidden extras and secrets?

With the original Sonic game, the update was given away for free, thats likely to be the case with this one, however a price point of $2.99 has been given for first time purchasers.
