SEGA America has released new screenshots for a game... most of you are dying to play. Or so we assume.
Anyway, new images from Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 are out, showing us Zone 1, Splash Hill Zone. It all leads up to your first boss fight against a familiar egg-shaped man.
As noted before, Sonic 4 takes place after Sonic & Knuckles, following the destruction of the Death Egg. Sonic thinks he's on vacation, and Dr. Eggman is still trying his best to kill the blue forest critter. Sad, sad man just can't let go.
Currently, three platforms have been confirmed for this download-only Sonic installment. In addition to LIVE, PSN, and WiiWare, there's a fourth "mystery" platform yet to be officially revealed; an iPhone logo popped up briefly on the main page some time ago, but it was quickly removed. Ominous business.
