popular PC and console game. Developer Sega says it'll release the game next week for £6.99, and presumably its local equivilent currencies. Players can choose from football leagues in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Portugal, Scotland, Spain and Wales. Hey, wait a second...
Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Monkey Ball franchises, along with a few others. But they're not anywhere near finished yet: Pocket Gamer reports that Sega's online RPG franchise Phantasy Star Online will be heading to Android in late April as a closed beta. Phantasy Star Online 2 will be released for Windows, PlayStation Vita and iOS as well. The good news is that the game will be free (with in-app purchases). The bad news? It's only confirmed for Japan so far.
on the Google Play Store, and you'd be hard pressed to have more fun with a barrel full of baboon lemurs. It's available today for just 99 cents, though that's a promotional price that's likely to increase soon.
started supporting Android, I had a singular, clear thought in my head: we need Super Monkey Ball. The simian franchise has been absent from Android for far too long, and the prospect of robotic monkeys notwithstanding, I don't exaggerate when I say that it's perfect for the smartphone/tablet form factor. According to Xperia Gamer, the Sony VIP portal has stated that Super Monkey Ball 2 will be headed to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play soon. Huzzah!
Sonic the Hedgehog 4, Episode II to Android, we were happier than a hedgehog in a hot dog stand - then a little miffed that the company had apparently completely passed over Android for part I, despite releasing it for every other platform including iOS.

Sonic CD, now available in the Android Market for just three bucks. If one of the best classic Sonic games isn't enough for you, Sega's got some exciting news: the second installment of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 will be spin-dashing its way to Android in 2012. Even more exciting, it will be getting a special edition that takes advantage of Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 processor, putting the game in the same ballpark as its PC and console counterparts.
Sega's blue hedgehog is post-Dreamcast, you can stop reading now - this story isn't for you. If, however, you've been patiently awaiting the Android arrival of one of the most celebrated 2D platformers of all time, prepare to be disappointed. Though the Sega CD classic Sonic CD will see a release on the iPhone tomorrow, December 14th, it won't be hitting Android until early next year. We'd blame Dr. Robotnik, but you'd think that he'd be on board with Android all the way. Android fans should be used to waiting by now (cough cough, Verizon).
Sega's done the right thing and brought ChuChu Rocket to the Android Market.
