I am so glad that they’ve revealed this title! If you’re a Genesis kid, you know of the Sonic games (hell, even if you’re just a gamer). The 2D platformer makes a return the way it should have years ago, by keeping levels 2D (and, this time instead of using sprites, everything is modeled in 3D). The title is called Sonic the Hedgehog 4 – Episode 1 (meaning there will most likely be more in the future). This is the kind of Sonic game I’ve been looking forward to for a long, long time, but I’ll actually have to give credit to Capcom, since they’ve probably inspired Sega to do this by releasing the new Mega Man games on PSN (and 360/Wii). The game will be released this Summer.
UPDATE: According to IGN, the game will run at 1080p on 360 and PS3 versions, while the Wii version will get motion control. They’re going to be reworking the themes and style of the music as well, and the only new move is the homing attack from newer games.
