The Xbox LIVE Marketplace has leaked the first screenshots of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, showing Sonic and Tails on their classic platforming game. You’ll see high-fiving, flying, a Metal Sonic boss fight, and what looks to be a bonus stage.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II is due for PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade, iOS and Android devices in 2012. A teaser trailer was released in December.

Thanks, Reddit.

    Looks pretty awesome.

    Also, never noticed the new screenshot system. A lot better than the old one Sal. Now the site is pretty much perfect, in my opinion.

      @RedWolfe: If you’re referring to publishing images in posts in comparison to posting them all in the gallery (a la here), we do a bit of both, depending on the type of post / image release.

      In this case, we don’t publish the images in our gallery because they’re leaks, and Sega are likely to release larger, better quality shots in the near future.

        @Sal Romano: Ah I see.

        I personally prefer this style I guess because as opposed to being redirected to the gallery, I like to stay in the article instead of having to make my way back to it when I’m done looking at the screens.

          @RedWolfe: It’s all really a matter of being able to have the images nicely compiled into an easily accessible gallery with dates, and what not. Also, it would take me 10 minutes to upload and stylize say, a new batch of 30 screenshots, in this format, where with the gallery format, I can literally just drop them in an FTP and watch it take 10 seconds.

            @Sal Romano: Yeah I could see how that would be a pain.

            Well, do what works best for you man. I’m not telling you how to run your own site. I come here for the news more so than format anyways.
