BARCELONA -- On the first day of Mobile World Congress here in Barcelona, SEGA showed Sonic the Hedgehog for the first time on a tablet powered by NVIDIA's quad core Tegra 3. Called Sonic the Hedgehog 4, Episode II, the new mobile game will launch some time in the Spring this year. It will come out first exclusively for NVIDIA Tegra-powered smartphones and tablets in NVIDIA's Tegra Zone before rolling out onto other Android devices after. We got a first hand look at the blue wonder doing his thing on the Tegra 3-powered Asus Transformer Prime tablet in this exclusive video.
Optimized for NVIDIA's Tegra platform, the game takes advantage of Tegra's dual and/or quad cores depending on the Tegra chip you have and uses all of NVIDIA's shader goodness. The game acts and feels like a console game but you can take it with you on your Tegra-powered mobile device. SEGA showed the game to partners and press at NVIDIA's Mobile World Congress party at Fira Barcelona.
