    Default Sonic Makes A Comeback To 2D In New, HD Game


    Sega has just revealed a tease for their brand new game featuring the one and only hedgehog, Sonic. For years we've been treated with, mostly, some not so great Sonic games and finally it appears Sega has listened to their fans. The game, currently titled "Project Needlemouse", is going to bring back Sonic to the way the fans have been begging for years now, and that is in its classic 2D style.

    "Old-school Sonic fans have long asked to see Sonic return to a more 2D style of gameplay. Many liked the daytime stages in Unleashed, but wanted to see a game that plays purely similar to the early games of the Genesis," says Sega’s Ken Ballough, "Project Needlemouse is that critical first step that brings Sonic back to his 2D roots."

    As the trailer says "Speed returns, in an all new 2D adventure built from the ground up," and additionally Ken Ballough confirming, this will indeed be a brand new game and not a remake of one of the older titles. Although no word was given on which platforms the game would arrive in, we can assure it to be on those with HD support as Ken said, "it’s a brand new 2D adventure coming out in 2010, it’s in HD, and to definitely stay tuned."

    Oh, and tuned we shall be, Mr. Ballough. Check out the teaser trailer below — featuring the old-school "SEGA!" chorus — and let us know what you think; Sonic fans, is this game announcement worth hoping for?

    Finally! It took Sega long enough. I have both the next gen sonic games on my ps3, but I only liked Sonic Unleashed. I glad they're bringing it back to it's side-scrolling roots.

    Thanks for posting Peza.

    the image that popped out in my head while watching the video was like a

    "fast paced little big planet"

    imagine sack boy with a sonic costume. jumping, running at amazing speed while collecting shiny,spinning golden rings.

    Sonic sucked after my learned to talk, I'm talking about the games, not the tv show.
