sonic Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode Metal Announcement and TrailerAre you a fan of a certain speedy blue hedgehog? If so, you’ll be happy to know that Sega has announced a new unlockable story available to gamers who purchase both Sonic the Hedgehog Episodes I and II for the same platform. The extra story, called Episode Metal, will allow Sonic fans to close the gap between the two episodes playing as Metal Sonic. The gameplay will start with parts of Episode I played from a different perspective and continue into the beginning of Episode II. Both Episode II and Episode Metal will be released on the same day on nearly every platform imaginable.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II, and Episode Metal, will be available on May 15 for PlayStation®Network ($14.99) and on May 16 for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft (1200 points). The game will also be available on Android devices, iOS, PC digital download and Windows Mobile Phones later this spring.

If you can’t wait until the release date next month, check out this trailer for a little taste of the fast-paced action.
