Green Throttle Games and SEGA of America, Inc. announced a partnership that will bring two iconic SEGA games featuring Sonic the Hedgehog to the Green Throttle Arena with full Atlas Controller compatibility. The Android versions of Sonic 4: Episode I and Sonic 4: Episode II, available from Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, will be updated soon to include support for Green Throttle, giving fans a new way to enjoy their favorite spiky blue speedster.

Fans can purchase the Atlas controller from store.greenthrottle.com or on Amazon.com and enjoy mobile-to-TV multiplayer action using the Android device that they already own. Compatible devices include the Kindle Fire and many of the latest Android smartphones and tablets on the market today.

“The opportunities in mobile gaming today are extremely exciting, and partnering with Green Throttle to bring a console-like experience to our mobile games is one example of what’s possible with the processing power of new devices,” said David Zemke, Director of Mobile Business Development for Sega of America. “There is great value in Green Throttle’s Arena app and it was a simple integration to add support for the Atlas controller to our games, giving fans a new way to play. We hope to bring even more games to the Arena in the coming months.”
