Sonic 4 Screenshots

They’ve been floating around the internet for a day or two, but we’ve finally got our hands on them. It’s definitely a 2-D sonic that is going to be a throwback to the ‘good’ Sonic games of the past. I’m just surprised I’m making this post instead of good ol’ Gibbo, because we all know […]
