We've already seen Mario run through the beautiful fields of the Unreal Engine 4 powered 'A Boy & His Kite' technology demo, but now it's Sonic's turn. We've embedded the video below.

It's a very early demo, but boy does Sonic run ultra fast and jump super far in the demo. It's not perfect with some serious collision issues, where Sonic runs on the spot for a few seconds, but it's great to see these iconic console characters in one of the best engines on the market.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
