He's blue. He's spiky. He's the fastest character in the video game universe, at least when he's running. This Thursday Sega releases Sonic Jump for iOS.

Today Sega tweeted the first screen for Sonic Jump, a reworking of a game Sega released in Japan back in 2005. It looks like Doodle Jump. It probably plays a lot like that too.

Sonic Jump will be available on Thursday worldwide for $1.99, AUD$1.99, £1.49 and €1.59.
