Sega today announced that another chapter in the popular Sonic series is set to arrive on Android devices in 2012.  Without providing a specific date or time frame, Sega indicates that Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II will make its way into the Android Market with optimization for Tegra 2 devices.  What’s more, the press release tells us that Sega and NVIDIA are working together to bring an even more optimized experience to Tegra 3 products!  And you thought all quad-core games had to be about first-person shooters…

Fans have been eagerly anticipating the next episode in Sonic’s new side-scrolling adventure, and SEGA has been listening closely to their feedback. Armed with all-new character animations and a completely reworked physics engine, Episode II will expand the Sonic 4 storyline with new areas to speed through and new challenges to face.

Boy… wonder who they could be referring to for the return of a sidekick.  And which villain is going to be reborn?
