Sega Officially Confirms No Sonic 4 Episode 2 For Wii

Sega’s Digital Brand Manager Ken Balough has confirmed on the Sega forums that Sonic 4: Episode 2 won’t be coming to the Wii. The original Sonic 4: Episode 1 was available on Wii but the latest episode will be coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and smartphones only.

The reason Episode I was on the Wii was because we wanted to bring the Sonic 4 saga to the widest possible audience. Episode II unfortunately will not be coming to the Wii – for reasons most people have probably guessed, but that doesn’t mean the SEGA isn’t supporting Nintendo platforms, we have a very strong partnership and will continue to do so.

  1. Woo. I love reading this information as soon as it comes out. I refreashed the page and BAM! Here it was. Anyways, I thought it was obvious they weren’t gonna make it for the wii. Let’s hope they do episode 1 on the wii u as well as episode 2.

      1. You guys really need to understand its not SEGA’s fault at all for not releasing Sonic 4 on the Wii, its Nintendo’s fault for making Wiiware games have an incredibly small size

      2. Yeah, but that rule doesn’t apply to the 3DS. Sure, it takes a little extra effort to add 3D if they wanted to, but the game would at least be on a gaming handheld instead of smartphones.

      1. what? how the hell is he a butthurt fanboy?? the shit is over priced, you have to spend 20 dollers just to buy something that is 15 on the wii shop channel!

  2. So basically they released part 1 of a multi-part series on a system without even ensuring that the follow-ups would be available thus leaving players hanging? Smart Sega, real smart; exactly what I expect from you these days.

    Oh well, if Episode 1 is any hint to the quality of 2 then we won’t be missing much. Even Colours was only alright and nowhere near as exciting as certain past games were on release.

      1. Well this case is different since Episode 1 was released on the Wii and then they decide not to release Episode 2. I would say also say fuck you but since I also got an Xbox 360, I won’t be missing out.

      3. So sad, dude, inform yourself, Nintendo isn’t exatcly a company full of win, they can make mistakes, like the piece of shit VirtualBoy, or the GameCube (yes i actually liked the GameCube but the P2 got far more game)

      4. I highly doubt that. By the time the new Playstation and XBOX are out, they will probably have specs that leave the Wii U’s in the dust. And high price? Nintendo have CONFIRMED that the Wii U could cost around £250 per unit….

      5. The PS4/720 will have evolutions of their motion controls and if you believe that the specs will leave the Wii U in the dust you are FUCKING delusional. Sony and Microsoft has said themselves that you won’t see a technical leap like you saw with the PS2 to PS3. So you’re wrong will they be stronger yes but will it be a gap in graphics like the Wii was this gen? no, it’ll be like the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube era there will be a graphics leader but it will be negligible.

      1. No, U.
        If Nintendo didn’t had to make that stupid 40 MB limit rule we could have the game, besides peteriuss is a butthurt fanboy troll.

  4. Wait, so for what reasons isn’t it coming to wii? And if ppl are setting its on a phone im not buying that the wii is too weak. Unless theu are saving it for the wii u.

    1. Its not that the Wii is too weak, its that the Wiiware only allows a very small size, so most games can’t be put on it. I mean, Episode 1 almost didn’t make it to the wii

  6. Well there are probably 2 reasons of why the game isnt coming to Wii:
    1) the limited space Wiiware has which makes it understandable
    2) they are probably going to launch it on Wii U which makes it even more understandable

  7. suck my dick sega. first you take over a year to even ANNOUNCE part 2, then you go and kick the loyal wii owners in the dick by not bringing the long awaited episode 2 to wii?!

    fuck you! smartphones aren’t even gaming platforms! you’re damn lucky sonic generations kicks ass or i’d hunt you down.

    1. Its not that the wii is incapable of playing the game, its that Wiiware only allows a 40 mb limit, So sonic 4 can’t fit. Its the same reason we didn’t get Sonic CD or Super Meat Boy

  8. I blame Nintendo! Nintendo should have never done that 40mb limit! Those cheap bastards who listened to parents instead of gamers!

    Nintendo, I think you seriously fucked up when you developed the Wii. Did they listen to the groups and parents again?

  10. Well it might not be coming out for the Wii, but it may come out for Wii U. That would seem the most logical reasoning behind it all to me.
    Tbh the Wii is becoming a bit old, now and there isn’t much point in developing anymore for it (not to say people shouldn’t stop developing of course).
    All the developers including Sega themselves will be making games and potentially launch titles for Wii U already. Following that Sonic 4 Episode 2.

  11. So they think smartphones deserve the game more than the Wii or can handle it better? Sorry, it’s blatantly obviously the phone version is a ‘cut down’ one technically, so why not also make a dedicated Wii version which meets the WiiWare criteria?

    Heck, why not just publish the game on disc? 2D games (especially platformers) do not need to be download only, and a plain old Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (with all ‘chapters’ in one game) would sell a ton.
