SEGA’s released some brand new screenshots from Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 and it’s all looking delightfully pretty. The shots show a variety of new districts, including a theme park, an underwater stage and a rather festive snowy carnival.

There’s also room for a sneak peak at one of the game’s boss fights, which looks suitably epic. We’ve always wondered how Dr. Eggman finds the time to build these ridiculous contraptions.

Earlier today, Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka revealed that Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 would utilise a physics engine based on the original Mega Drive titles.

Let's hope the game plays as good as it looks.
