Developer Hardlight Studios let slip via quickly deleted tweets - which Sega Driven
also spotted before they ran off - Sega's iOS endless runner Sonic Dash
is making a midnight sprint for the App Store tonight. According to those deleted tweets, the game is priced $1.99 in the US, and £1.49 in the UK. That's backed up by Sonic Dash
already being out in New Zealand
, which traditionally gets App Store content hours ahead of other regions because of wibbly-wobbly time zone differentiation.
As the App Store gallery and description indicates
, Sonic Dash
is a fair bit reminiscent of the Temple Run
formula, which to us seems fair enough since the blue hedgehog was doing the Temple Run
thing as far back as Sonic Adventure
. The description also reveals that, for those that can't get enough of the hog's critter chums, Sonic Dash
lets you play as Tails, Amy, and Knuckles McGee (Knuckles for short).
