The US SEGA Blog has revealed that a new demo for Sonic Generations will be coming out next week.

 

Today we are excited to confirm that a second demo is incoming for Sonic Generations! Best of all, it’s coming really really soon – like really soon! The second demo for the game will be available via Xbox Live Arcade on 19th October across North America and Europe and PlayStation Network on 25th October for North America! You’ve been waiting patiently, you’ve seen the demos, videos and materials we’ve been teasing – now you can enjoy the demo a few days ahead of the full game release on November 1st!

The first demo, released on June 23rd 2011 – the anniversary of Sonic’s 20th year – allowed fans to play as Classic Sonic only. Now the second demo not only contains the Classic content you enjoyed, but now adds in Modern Sonic in the iconic Green Hill level from Sonic Generations! Take that Monday, this week just got a whole lot better!
