Find out just how Metal Sonic returns in this add-on DLC!
Anyone who's a Sonic fan will probably have heard of Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2, the new downloadable side-scroller headed to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this Summer. Well, now there's more good news to add on top of the knowledge that there have been no delays from SEGA to speak of: for those devotees who bought and saved both 2010's Episode I and this year's edition, there will be a special add-on package of levels titled Episode Metal available for free to play too. The storyline of the DLC will be based around providing a bridge of sorts from the classic Sonic CD to Sonic 4, showcasing how Metal Sonic survived to become the main antagonist of the new game as well as actually putting the robotic hedgehog in the hopefully capable hands of the player too. It's a bold move by the developers, and one which we can only hope pays off what with all of the hate surrounding their tired mascot's franchise nowadays! Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 will be released on May 16th.
