It’s possible that we weren’t meant to see these screenshots for Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II just yet, but it’s pretty cool seeing Sonic’s faithful sidekick Tails in the game’s overhauled 3D graphical style, so… we’re going to put them up anyway.
The shots originally appeared on Xbox.com and have since been removed, but they’re sure to be released in an official capacity some time soon.
Until then, enjoy:
What can we expect in Sonic 4: Episode II? Here’s the full synopsis:
