Earlier this year RIM announced that the BlackBerry PlayBook would be receiving more games in the future, and one of the promised games was Sonic 4. Well, it looks like the day has finally arrived as SEGA announced on its blog over the weekend that Sonic 4 Episode 1 has arrived on the PlayBook. Sonic 4 Episode 1 marks the blue hedgehog’s first appearance on the RIM tablet. So for all you PlayBook owners who have been envious of your friend’s Android tablet, you don’t have to be anymore.
If you’ve played Sonic before you’ll know what to expect, the familiar running, jumping, Sonic Spin Dash, golden rings, Eggman, and running circles around your foes – it’s all there. Sonic 4 Episode 1 is available now from the BlackBerry App World (worldwide except in Japan) and will set you back $6.99. Check it out and let us know what you think.
