''Episode II'' officially launched on May 15, 2012 for PC, [=PS3=], Xbox 360, Android, and iOS platforms[[note]]although the near-final "[=Beta8=]" was accidentally released through UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} on April 21, 2012[[/note]]. It featured an improved graphics engine (which kept it from releasing on the Wii since it wasn't powerful enough) and somewhat improved the physics of ''Episode I''. The plot involves Dr. Eggman creating a new Death Egg by [[UnwillingRoboticisation roboticizing]] the Little Planet from ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD Sonic CD]]''. [[RobotMe Metal Sonic]] returns as a reoccurring boss, and Tails follows Sonic everywhere just like in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2''. He also allows for three new team-up moves: flying, swimming, and a barreling cannonball spin attack. Having a ''Episode I'' save file on the same platform will unlock ''[[OldSaveBonus Episode Metal]]'', a four-act mini-episode starring Metal Sonic.

** This is also the case for the ''Episode II'' Beta8; although it is virtually finished, it has a debug command for instant rings and minor graphical errors, as well as an [[DummiedOut unused]] track intended for an additional ending.

The story is simple: {{mad scientist}} and aspiring [[TakeOverTheWorld world conqueror]] [[BigBad Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik]] seeks revenge on his perpetual arch nemesis by rebuilding his best Badniks to go on a hedgehog hunt. Now, Sonic must counter Eggman's offense and save the world from the doctor once again.

* CutShort: A third episode was planned as a way to round out ''Sonic 4'' as a trilogy much like the original 16-bit games.[[note]]Provided one considers ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'' to be one full game instead of two separate ones.[[/note]] Lower than expected sales and critical reception of the first two episodes caused Sega to cancel ''Episode III''.

''Episode I'' was released on iOS, {{Wii}}, {{PlayStation 3}}, {{Xbox 360}}, PC, and Android. It was hyped as essentially ''VideoGame/MegaMan9'' [[XmeetsY meets]] ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros'' from the outset, thanks to its codename of "''Project Needlemouse''".[[note]]"Mr. Needlemouse" was Sonic's name back when his very first game was still in the planning stages.[[/note]] The game featured almost no momentum thanks to the physics being copied and pasted from ''[[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush]]''. The developers even admitted to doing so intentionally to place more emphasis on using the Homing Attack.
