The wait for the new and improved Sonic is nearly over for iPhone and iPod touch fans, and to help tide you over, Sega has released a brand new trailer showing off all kinds of gameplay elements.

Sonic 4 marks the official reboot of the Sonic series.  It takes the little blue hedgehog back to his speedy roots, with 3D side-scrolling platformer action and enhanced classic gameplay elements.  It’s meant to appeal to both old and new Sonic fans, and judging from what we know and have seen so far, it certainly will.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 should actually be hitting the App Store tomorrow, October 7th. More details, including pricing, should be rolling in shortly, so keep your eyes peeled.
