SEGA has revealed that Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 2 will have new physics that are based on the Mega Drive era Sonic games.
The engine has been rebuilt from episode 1 after complaints came from fans who suggested that the physics felt "unnatural", said Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka in an interview with .
"I wanted to make sure people could play the game and it not feel unnatural," said Lizuka. "It should feel right. Rather than thinking of it as us trying to say, 'okay, this is the way it should be,' we looked at feedback where people were saying, 'this feels unnatural."
"Those were the things we decided to eliminate, so it should feel natural when they play the game."
Sonic 4 Episode 2 will launch this year for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, iOS, Windows Phone and Android.
