Well…well…well look who is back again. Sega today finally released the newest information on it’s “project needlemouse” and to nobody’s surprise it is Sonic the Hedgehog 4. The Blue Blur will be making his return on the PSN, Xbox Live, Wii Virtual Store, and the iPhone. It is reported that the game will be coming in episode form, with the first episode being released this summer. Rumors are reporting that the story begins immediately after the end of Sonic the Hedgehog 3. It is also rumored that Wii and PS3 Motion controls will be implemented in some way as well. The game will sport HD graphics and a mixture of 2D and 3D graphics. So will this be the game that finally breaks the cycle and returns us to the glorious 16 bit days, or will it be another tragedy that finally puts the furious rodent down for the ten count

Check out the Trailer below.

  1. How many years of fan clamoring did it take for SEGA to finally grasp this (based on what little we saw) is the style of game Sonic fans wanted. Sonic Adventure (the first one) was actually pretty good, but they even departed from that the with ludicrously horrid games like Sonic Unleashed and Sonic and the Black Knight.

    The idea of this being an arcade title with episodic DLC makes me kind of cringe. I’d much prefer a full game that I can buy at the store. I mean it’s freaking Sonic the Hedgehog 4… not some spin off.

    Still… I am aware of the cycle posted, which is sadly quite accurate. I hope that they learned their lesson though. I honestly don’t believe SEGA will let the followup to Sonic 3 fail. If it does, then this IP is truly dead.

    Also iPhone… over DS and PSP… /barf.

    1. I just hope that those DLC packs are cheap and full of content, and only allow Knuckles and Tails to be alternative playable characters, every other character sucks, well Shadow is sorta an exception.
