Sega launches Sonic Jump on Google Play Store

Sonic fans take note, because Sega has just released a new game called Sonic Jump on the Google Play Store. One look at the title and you're likely to know right away what kind of game this is - it's a vertical platformer in the vein of Doodle Jump, a game that was extremely popular a while back. Here we've got the same basic premise, only this time, it features everyone's favorite blue hedgehog and his friends.

Jet Set Radio HD announced for Android

Earlier this year, Sega announced that an HD remake of its classic Dreamcast game Jet Set Radio was in the works for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and PS Vita. As if that weren't already enough platforms, Sega revealed today that the HD port will also be coming to Android. Sadly, we still don't have a release date for Jet Set Radio HD, so the knowledge that it's coming to Android will have to be good enough for now.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II available today, we go hands-on

SEGA is back today with that awesome blue hedgehog we all know plenty about. Announced just now and available starting today is the brand new Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II for Android.

Football Manager comes to Android April 11th

Football season is over here in the US, and that means a long, boring wait through spring and summer before we see more pigskin action. But don't worry, NFL fans: you can get some vicarious football thrills in the interim via Football Manager Handheld, a portable version of the 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...

Sega plans Android release for MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2

Android gaming has finally come into its own, and major publishers are starting to take notice. This includes gaming legend Sega, which has graced Android with its 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.

Super Monkey Ball 2 rolls onto the Google Play Store

If there's one game I've been waiting to play ever since I picked up my first Android smartphone, it's Super Monkey Ball. This kooky title is fun, addictive and so simple that dome kind of non-human simian could play it. Now Sega has seen fit to release Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition 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.

Report: Sega’s Super Monkey Ball 2 headed to Xperia Play

As soon as Sega 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 I available now, doesn’t play nice with Galaxy Nexus

After the news that Sega was planning on bringing its 2D platforming revival 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. That small oversight has been corrected today, as Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 has been released in the Android Market. You can pick it up now for $3.99.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II coming with special Tegra 3 edition

Raise your hand if you've been busting Robotnik's chops in the newly re-released 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.
