Sega announced plans to support the Android-powered Ouya
console after its public launch later this month with a trio of Sonic the Hedgehog releases.
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1
, Sonic 4: Episode 2
, and Sonic CD
will be released in the Ouya Store on June 27 for $7 each. All three games were previously released for iOS and Android devices, though the Ouya ports are optimized for the console's Tegra 3 processor, and will have free trial versions available in the Ouya Store.
Speaking to GamesIndustry International
, Sega of America Director of Mobile Business David Zemke praised Ouya's "disruptive technology," and expressed the company's desire "to see what these technologies can do and be a part of it from the beginning."
Zemke also addressed the potential for future Ouya releases. "We're always looking for other titles and there may be some future titles that we'd like to bring over," he said. "For us, we're always trying to bring the best gaming experience to the right platforms. It's a delicate mix of how and when to do it."
The Ouya will launch on June 25.
