Man, I haven't played Sonic sense Sonic 3 for SEGA Genesis. Mostly due to the fact that I though the series trailed of some where, where I had no means to follow. Plus one of my classmates decided to sneak off with my copy of Sonic 3 and that was kind of the end...
However now there was an announcement about Sonic for X360 and it looks Holy Cow... AWASOME!
SEGA of America and SEGA Europe announced today the development of a brand new Sonic title, Sonic The Hedgehog, intended for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. SEGA hopes the reinvention of this popular franchise will thrill both the long-time Sonic fans as well as a new generation of gamers with the exciting speed and action only possible on next-generation platforms.
Sonic The Hedgehog for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will be developed under the direction of Yuji Naka, award-winning developer known for creating the hugely successful SEGA franchise. With an innovative combination of art, physics and game design, SEGA and Mr. Naka expect to create the most intense sensation of speed ever experienced in videogames.
Sonic The Hedgehog for next-gen is expected to ship on multiple platforms in conjunction with the character's 15th anniversary in 2006.
There are few more screenies on their site... and if game looks that good it's a buy for me!
