The blue blur is back in Sonic 2 Remastered next month

SEGA is porting a couple of its better Sonic games over to iOS this winter - namely Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sega All-Stars Racing: Transformed.

Fans of the spikey-haired rodent may already own the first mobile version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which appeared on the App Store back in 2010.

However, if the revamped version of Sonic the Hedgehog is anything to go by, this enhanced edition of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will bring some control improvements, and iron out a few performance-related creases.

If racing is more your bag, then you'll be pleased to hear that the sequel to the refreshingly decent Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing will also be gracing the App Store in December.

We praised the original for its entertaining mash-up of beloved SEGA characters and old-skool kart racing hijinks. The sequel promises more of the same, only with the added ability to transform your vehicle into a plane or boat mid-race. Which is handy.

You can expect Sega All-Stars Racing: Transformed to race into iOS in December.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Remastered, meanwhile, should arrive next month. If you happen to own the original version, the remastered features will be added via a free update.
