Sega’s (desperately needed) revamp of the Sonic franchise took an unwelcome blow with news that its being delayed until late 2010. Gone is the idea that we’ll be playing the retro-inspired Sonic 4 this summer only to be replaced with a moody ‘hmph’. Siliconera are reporting the reason for this delay is to tune and tweak the gameplay so it feels more like the classics which, although annoying, is better than releasing another duff Sonic game. It’s also been confirmed that Sonic 4 will be coming to iPhone, joining the already known PSN, XBLA and WiiWare versions. Oh well, at least we should have Lara to play with over the summer months.
