After getting ported to the iOS App Store in 2013, the original Sonic The Hedgehog is making its way back to the living room today with a launch on the Apple TV App Store (via TouchArcade). The game is essentially the remastered iOS version optimized for Apple TV, and will let fans play classic Sonic with the all-new Apple TV remote.
Race at lightning speeds across seven classic zones as Sonic the Hedgehog. Run and spin through loop-de-loops as you collect rings and defeat enemies on your mission to save the world from the evil Dr. Eggman.
This re-mastered mobile version of the SEGA Genesis classic features the full “Sonic The Hedgehog” game.
In addition to the release of the first game on Apple TV, a few more Sonic games will be following suit in the coming weeks. On March 24, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will launch on tvOS, while fans will be able to download Sonic CD a week later on March 31.
Sonic The Hedgehog is available now from the tvOS App Store for $2.99. It's likely that the two upcoming games will be priced similarly.
