SEGA has unveiled the launch trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II, showing off zones that have yet to be seen in official videos and making the proclamation of “to be concluded…”. So is episode II the end of the Sonic 4 saga? Or will it be concluded with an episode III? I’m assuming they mean once you play episode II, the game is concluded. But seeing as how SEGA likes money, you’d think they wouldn’t be so definite with the end of the episodic releases. Unless Sonic 5 is next…
Update: After watching the Sonic 4 Episode I trailer, I’m now convinced that the Episode II launch trailer actually points towards an Episode III which will act as the conclusion. Episode I’s launch trailer ended with “To Be Continued…”, referring to another episode. So Episode II’s “To Be Concluded…” most likely refers to another episode that will serve as the conclusion.
After the break, all the prices and release dates you could ever want.

One response to “Sonic 4 Episode II launch trailer proclaims “to be concluded…” – Episode III a possibility?”
Episode II is a lot more enjoyable than Episode I, and even has a slight nod towards Sonic Crackers/Knuckles Chaotix. Bring on Episode III if they keep improving like this.
