The lights are on
[Update]: Sega has just updated their Facebook page, which has a new Sonic teaser trailer. It's not specifically called Sonic Generations, but it does preface the quick footage with a 20th anniversary Sonic logo and features two different versions of Sonic racing against each other. Enjoy. Whatever this game is, it's coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime this year.
[Original Story]: If there's one thing that we can be certain of with Sega, it's that they're probably always working on at least one new Sonic project. We know that a second episode of Sonic 4 is in the works, but new evidence suggests that something else might be brewing for the world's most popular hedgehog.
G4TV reports that on the official Sonic Facebook page, Sega has been dropping vague hints of something big coming soon, culminating in today's promise of a trailer that will debut on the Facebook page tomorrow, April 7. A similar promise was made on Sega's Twitter account.
So where does the title Sonic Generations come from? That's thanks to the magical Internet detectives over at NeoGAF, who discovered that the same company that registered Internet domains for Sonic 4 and Sonic Free Riders have registered SonicGenerations.com and Sonic-Generations.com.
Some forum members are speculating that the title will be a simple compilation of older Sonic games, like the many that have come before, while others are pointing to an older rumor suggesting a game that will reuse classic Sonic levels but with new graphics and abilities.
Whatever the truth ends up being, we will hopefully know tomorrow. Stay tuned to the Sonic Facebook page and Game Informer, where we'll update you as soon as something official is revealed.
i hope its a remake of the old ones.
I'd be excited if they just decided to go in the direction Capcom went with the DLC Mega Man titles.
I'd probably cry...
Whatever it is it means more Sonic and that is good enough for me.
Sonic has always been the franchise I wanted to love, but just couldn't bring myself to repeat buy. I think I am just judging harshly because the last sonic I played was on the GameCube. MEH!
By now i'd be happy with a decent game. sonic adventure 3 is a must want for fans who came from the first wave of the 3d psone N64 and dreamcast consoles.
i dont care what they do just make a good sonic game. either using the original or sonic adventure formula ... just keep OMA chao away from it for gods sake.
i think sega needs to smarten up and start releasing 2d sonic games similar to the nintendo ds ones. theyre of the highest quality and are the most popular. all they need to bring those games to consoles are better graphics, more abilities/ a more complex control scheme, bigger levels, and better levels. then sonic fans will be happy.
cool cant wait for tomorow
I just wish he would get back to sonic 3 days when he was good.
I'm excited. Can't wait to see waht it is.
give me sonic adventure 3 **BRAAAHHHH**.
Can we get taped footage of sir Tim Turi's reaction to what it will be?
