The game will follow in the style of similar iOS titles like Doodle Jump, as players control Sonic to continuously jump to higher platforms.
Few details have been released, but a single screenshot for the game shows that Sonic can gain power-ups, like a magnet, and will need to avoid classic enemies while collecting rings.
Back in 2007, Sega released a similar game on the T-Mobile sidekick also titled Sonic Jump. The new game features a cleaner HD visual style than the Game Boy Advance-borrowed graphics of the original.
Meanwhile, Sonic will next appear on home consoles in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, which will be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next month with a Wii U edition to follow.
Sonic Jump will be available on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch from October 18 for £1.49 ($1.99).
