Sonic CD: A Time Paradox of a Two-Tailed Fox

As reported earlier and officially revealed on the Sega Blogs, Sonic CD is making it’s way to a host of tablets as part of Gamestop’s move toward the tablet market. Consumers who purchase Samsung Galaxy, Acer 100 and ASUS Transformer at participating Gamestop retailers receive Sonic CD for free early. Offer begins this Friday. The remaining versions will be releasing in December.

In addition, Sega revealed an exclusive feature to the new revision of the game: Tails as a playable character for the entirety of the game! Complete with his ability to fly. Tails becomes playable after completing the game once as Sonic. Check out the gallery below of more screens from the Android version and Tails in action.

    They should have just released it today to coincide with Generation’s release. I really don’t feel like waiting another month for a port of a 20 year old game. I also think its kind of excessive that they are hyping this up like its a release of a brand new game. All I want is Sonic 3 and knuckles, and CD to come out on IOS as soon as possible.

    This is totally awesome!! This is a true good unlockable for a port!! The only way to make things better would be a Knuckles & USA soundtrack DLC. But seriously, this announce is totally awesome 😀

    Tails is one of the few characters Amy never mistook for Sonic. But now, NO MORE!

    Pwnage, Sega. Where’s Knuckles, eh? 😛

    Whoa, that’s quite a nice surprise and a welcome feature.
    I wonder if he’ll have animated movies and how it’ll be, not to mention the warp-screens, special stages and the “i’m outta here” lol.
    And no one criticizing Tails inclusion so far…

    At first, I wasn’t totally sure if I was going to buy this edition of Sonic CD, seeing that I already own the Sonic Gems version.
    Now I am sure. Thank you for being freaking awesome, SEGA.

    Hold up. Where do I fit the Sonic and Tails cartridge?

  • Reply

    Ewwwwwwww…. That tails sprite is so copy/pasted. Doesn’t fit with the rest of the game’s art at ALL. Am I really the only one who notices this so far? Sonic here looks very Sonic 1 and Tails still looks ripped straight out of Sonic 2. If you are going to throw him into Sonic CD, at least make it not in the style of a half-assed fan hack.

    Also, what about the more memorable characters this game introduced, like Amy and Metal Sonic. Any playable love there?I’m guessing no because this inclusion screams lazy.

    This to kick Nintendont’s butt for sure.First Generations and then CD with new attachments,that’s something that the plumber will ever do:Remake his awesomest game and add nice attachments for everyone to enjoy! : )

    Oh, shut up. Why don’t YOU go remake a Sonic game from scratch yourself? T_T

    Sweet, but if they can add another character, surely they can add the US soundtrack as well.

  • Reply

    Oh, come on, that’s TOTALLY Sonic 3 Tails. Gaawwwwd.

    But seriously, what the fuck? Are you seriously whining about them adding features to a port, rather than bugs, for once? give them a chance to take steps in the right direction, if anything.

    ha ha, let me bless miles inclusion with my penis!!

    Did you play the Mario Advance games? Mario 2, Mario 3, Mario World and Yoshi’s Island were all excellently remade with enhancements and extra game modes a decade ago.

    WHAT !!!? HOW!!? WHERE!!? WHEN!!!?

    *inhales exhales*

    I’ve been wanting to play CD as Tails since… FOREVER!
    Will the PSN/XBLA version have Tails as well? A god forsaken TABLET better not have this instead of a CONSOLE. >=/

    I’m crossing my fingers for Knuckles as well. 😀

    “Half-assed hack” 

    Yeah… show me ONE Sonic CD hack with a character that isn’t Sonic. >_> I dare ya.

    The forefront UFO in the Special Stage shot is purdy.

    Too bad my sister who likes Tails doesn’t like Sonic CD so I don’t think this will affect me anyway, but I’m concerned about something, if Tails can fly, will Sonic be left with no abilities once again? I really think the instant shield can be handy with certain enemies in the game!

    Good bye, “See you next game” screen. I’ll miss you. Future kids won’t be able to live your superiority.

    So I noticed a while back that SEGA said this would be making its way to digital distribution platforms for the PC. Does this mean it will see a Steam release like I am hoping for? :)

  • Reply

    Well, he still has the Peelout which is free-time-travel if you use it wisely.

  • Reply

    Well I like the idea of adding Tails in, we haven’t been able to play as anyone other than Sonic on a platformer since Sonic Rivals 2. (correct me if I’m wrong) It’ll be good to play CD again, but there’s something that bugs me about the obscure unknown little game of my childhood being included on every Samsung Galaxy, Acer 100 and ASUS Transformer today. In a way that’s good, but in another way it makes Sonic CD lose what made it so special, its obscurity.

    I think this practically confirms tails being a playable character in S4:E2 since Sonic CD is “so linked” to it, I mean why else would they put him in? It’s been hinted at a lot.

    Mighty the Armadillo and Team Choatix please for more features lol. Knuckles also :3

    Ahah… I get it!

    Sega made a Rom Hack.

    The whole time-travel thing? Tails in Sonic CD now? Think about it… I think they’re going to tie Sonic 4 into the Sonic Generations story! I wouldn’t be surprised if Sonic 4 ends up taking place when Sonic & Tails return from the future.
    Still not convinced? Just take a look at who are the classic characters in Sonic Generations? …Sonic, Tails, Eggman & Metal Sonic.. That’s it!!! Everyone else is modern style, even Knuckles.

    Sonic CD: Before they are captured by Time-Eater [Launch Trailer “See how it all started”]Sonic 4: After they return from the future. The perfect reason to continue with some classic style sonic projects on the side as DLC packs for hardcore classic fans!

    But… Tails… rescuing Amy?
    And racing Metal Sonic? Oh, that’d be weird. Wait, what about some kind of Metal/Mecha Tails, or maybe Tails Doll? That would be memorable.

    FUTURE! PAST! I have the old Sega Pc Port of this game. I love it. Glad to see Tails make an appearance. Also, I hope Knuckles beats his way into this game.
