Sonic Generations was today, finally, formally announced by SEGA in the means of an IGN exclusive. The much speculated title will be made available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live this year, for Sonic’s 20th Anniversary. IGN have managed to secure some game time and have advised that essentially there are two Sonics, Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic and the pair meet up to try and defeat a yet unknown enemy.
Classic Sonic will be what Sonic is all about – 2D platforming whilst Modern Sonic will rush through the games ala Sonic Adventure Battle 2 in an array of speedy 3D motions. Read On
Judging by the apperance of the trailer, it’s clear that a lot of work has gone into making this game something special. Sonic starts off running through a white landscape, it almost looks like snow, until it becomes apparent that it’s a normal “first zone” type of area, that just lacks colour. Before long something else appears… Classic Sonic. Yes, Sonic of old and the new style Sonic running along side one another.
One thing we can be certain of – it’s not Sonic 4 Part 2 as the title is a PSN and XBL release only at the present time. So it could be Sonic Chronicles, or it could be something completely different. Only time will tell.
You can check out the video on Sonic’s official Facebook page here.
The lovely folks at SEGA are keeping the world waiting to find out what the latest news is in regards to Sonic. SEGA have updated their Sonic page on Facebook, the blogs and Twitter accounts with subtle hints about what it could be.
Today it was announced that we’ll find out tomorrow what’s going on, in the form of a trailer on the Sonic Facebook page. What’s the trailer for, is it Sonic 4 Part 2 as VGN hope, or is it for another much rumoured game?
A lovely Twitter spy noticed a few days ago that SEGA have registered a new domain name – Sonic Generations. Currently the site is nothing but a blank screen, not a 404, but a blank screen. So there’s a fairly strong chance that we’ll be seeing an entirely new game coming from SEGA and the Sonic Team tomorrow.
As it’s Sonic’s 20th birthday this year, it’s only fitting for either a brand new title to come out that echoes back to the heyday of the franchise. That, or it’s going to be a compilation title like the Sonic Collection on the DS; but only with all of the Sonic titles from the Dreamcast back.
We’ll keep you updated as soon as we know!
Update 6th April – 22.55
SEGA updated us all on their Twitter page today that we’ll be able to see this trailer at 4pm tomorrow in the UK.
