Ken Balough gives out tidbits from Sonic 4: Episode 2

February 26, 2011

Sonic does his best Willem Dafoe impression from Platoon.

The big cheese of Sega’s Digital development scene dropped some details about the next episode of Sonic 4, while there isn’t much to go on, it appears that the next iteration will have a bigger development budget and a few ideas brewing:

He hasn’t given much away, other than confirming that work is underway on the sequel to last year’s downloadable 2D platformer, and that SEGA is looking to improve on the original.

“SoA and SoE are both giving feedback and input on Episode II. Episode I did very well for SEGA commercially, and thanks to everyone’s support, we definitely have a lot of traction going into Episode II,” he wrote.

“This usually means better budgets, etc. That said – I see a lot of really great ideas going into the next installment.”

“I certainly cannot deny there were some elements that could have been done better – and I could say that about most games I’ve worked on,” he added elsewhere in the thread, addressing fan criticisms of Episode 1.

“That’s why Episode II gives us that opportunity to address them (or as much as possible).”

As to when the game might be ready, Balough would only say, “You definitely wont have to wait years and years a la Duke Nukem Forever.”
