After a few delays, consumers can finally get their hands on the Android-powered gaming handheld, the Nvidia Shield; users can break-in the new system with Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, as all devices will come pre-installed with a copy.
Sega announced a new partnership with Nvidia today, which brings Sonic 4 to their new handheld, the Nvidia Shield. Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II runs at a smooth 60fps on the Shield’s 5″ 1280×720 screen, and comes pre-installed with every purchase of the device. Not only does the Nvidia Shield play Android games, but it also doubles as a controller and secondary screen for specific PC games, including Skyrim and Dishonored, via WiFi/Bluetooth; the Shield also features vibration and haptic feedback.
The Nvidia Shield is available for $299.99, and ships in 2-3 weeks.
