We've been giddy for the Sonic CD iOS release since it was finally officially announced back in August, Sega has finally revealed the release date for the game: and it's tomorrow! This will coincide with the release of Sonic CD on the console digital download platforms Xbox Live and PSN this week as well. Pricing on consoles will be $4.99, but iOS gamers get a special introductory price of $1.99. Sega has also confirmed via their Twitter that Sonic CD will be coming to Android and Windows Phone 7, but not until early next year.

This was going to be an absolutely insane week for releases already, but when you throw a heavy hitter like the beloved Sonic CD, coming with all sorts of enhancements and bonuses over the original, into the release mix then things quickly get turned up to 11 and beyond. We'll let you know as soon as Sonic CD officially hits the App Store, and you can be sure we'll be playing the heck out of it with a review soon to follow.

    All the fun of Sonic CD and none of the hassles of SEGA CD. Two bucks is a perfect price. I can't believe my 64GB 4S is running out of space!

      I'd settle for 200GB

    Best Sonic game ever. If it's 60fps as expected, then this will be a killer iOS game. 

    And on Thursday we get Mushihime-sama from Cave too.

    Sounds like a good day for PSN tomorrow! Though to be honest, if it runs as well as the early demo did... I may end up buying it on iOS as well. It's Sonic CD!

    I hope they have retina displayed icon. Don't care about the display in game.. Icon retina displayed would be a huge plus for me. 

    Still hoping for retina displayed icons for Sonic 1, Sonic 2, and Sonic 4 🙁

      What I want to know is how do big companies like sega miss details like updating an icon to a higher resolution O_o

    Does anyone know the approximative expected time for the game to appear on the App store? (Thanks!)

    It seems to not have virtual pad as I can't see button on the screen.
    Tilt, swipe or what?

    Call me crazy, but all of the sonic the hedgehog games look lame too me.

    It's not showing up in a search of the App Store (using the 4S).  Shouldn't it be available by now according to this post?  Or am I missing something?

    Wait, it's coming to iOS tomorrow (the 15th, not the 14th): "Sonic CD is available now on Xbox Live Arcade for a mere $5. Android and
    iOS versions will be available by December 15, for a limited-time price
    of $1.99. PlayStation owners will have to wait until December 20, when
    Sonic CD is released on the PlayStation Network for $4.99. A Windows
    Phone version is planned for next year."

    I got the game recently even though the price was not $2 anymore. It is a great port of the game. Unlike some of the other Sega games, this one was done by Christian Whitehead and you can see how his effort made a truly great port.

    I hope that Sega gets a clue and perhaps does a similar job with some of their other ports.
