The first gameplay footage of SEGA’s episodic downloadable, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2, has spin-dashed online. The trailer shows Sonic and his flame furred associate, Tails, sprinting through a series of distinctly SEGA-like environments, including funfairs, ruins and snowy mountains.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 promises to pick up where its predecessor left off, with Metal Sonic forming a dastardly alliance with Dr. Eggman and generally making a nuisance of himself.

Put down those chilli-dogs, Sonic – the world needs saving... Again.
