Additional Sonic 4 episodes get spiked

Series future rests on the success of Episode II

SEGA has announced that there will be no further episodes of Sonic 4 after Episode II is released.

In addition to this it has also been confirmed that while Episode I appeared on WiiWare Episode II will not be gracing the Wii's download service.

The game's producer Takashi Iizuka explained, "We are looking forward to hearing the feedback from the users for Episode II, but we are currently not planning to release another episode. We just want to see how the users accept this episode."

This looks like that the future of the new Sonic series which was released as a true sequel to the original 2D Sonic games hinges on how well received Episode II is on PSN, XBLA, iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
