The lights are on
Time continues to tick away as the announcement of Project Needlemouse’s true name draws near. Today we’ve got two pieces of very nostalgic concept art to chew on, and also a sneak peek at Project Needlemouse’s music. Sega appears to be scrubbing away the last sordid 16 years of the hedgehog’s life to restore his former glory. Will it work?Find the concept art below. First we have one of the iconic background sunflowers from the original Sonic's Green Hill Zone. There’s also one of the power-up hiding palm trees from the same level. I never thought I’d be so happy to see two pieces of flora revealed for a video game.Next up is a snippet from the game’s music. If you’re afraid of the cheesy power ballad intros from the Dreamcast games, rest easy. This is pure Genesis-era beauty in audio form. I can’t wait to hear more!Perhaps the most exciting news is that Sega is announcing Project Needlemouse’s true identity this Thursday. A “bonus” is also promised to all the diehard Sonic fans clawing their eyes out in anticipation. Could this return of Sonic truly be the game that we never thought would be made?Source: Sega Blog

let us pray
Perhaps sonic isn't dead quite yet. But, I'll reserve my judgment until more information is released.
Put me down as skeptical.

Whats wrong GI, you didnt like my posts?
anyway, lets hope its a "new" retro sonic similar to whats been done with Megaman
If this isn't a "f'reals" Sonic game then this is one of the biggest teases video games has ever given us next to the SNES Mortal Kombat blood code and Seth Killian's Megaman 9 secret.
Hopefully sega doesnt screw this one up.
its just Sonic the Hedgehog 4
Not much concept art...
Aw, and I was hoping for a Sci-Fi sonic game after the last medieval one where he wielded a sword. Or was it the one with guns? Just imagine Sonic exploring extra terrestrial worlds with some kind of phaser gun. Oh yeah.
back to basics Sonic is going to be sweet.
I am done with the hedgehog.
2-d sonic goodness. whoa let me think... sega is actually listening to us and giving us what we want out of a sonic game!!!?? about F**KING time!!! those 2-d gba sonic games were crap.
Old-fashioned Sonic??? *checks outside for flying pigs*
ba-bump ba-bump ba-bump
these are the sounds emanating from sonics once unbeating heart
It's great they're making a good Sonic game again, it's only been what? Over ten years?
Am I the only person that liked Sonic Adventure for the DC? I mean, I thought that was a pretty stinkin good game..... Oh well!
What saddens me is that Sega thinks the only way to fix Sonic is to go back to his roots, when that simply isn't true; He can work in 3D, as Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 proved.
Nevertheless, I'm cautiously excited for this.
now images pls sega y r u holding back, u scared for what u did to us for the past 10 years...
I really hope that this game brgins Sonic out of game hell...
