- SEGA to reveal a new Sonic the Hedgehog game next month
- won’t be announced until mid-February
- due out on Wii U, PS3, 360, 3DS, PS Vita, PC, and “Next gen” consoles
- console, PC and PS Vita versions will be identical aside from the graphical differences
- 3DS version will be another Sonic Rush styled game
- console version of this new game will be sticking with the recent formula
- gameplay switches between full 3D movement and 2D side-scrolling sections
- multiple routes through a stage
- incentive to play through all routes
- each route in a stage will lead to one of two or three exits
- the end of each will take you to a different stage
- you will always end up at the same final stage, though
- working to make at least 20 different stages, not including boss battles.
- begin the game with Sonic and unlock other characters to play as by completing stages
- example: you might unlock Knuckles in any one of three stages. Sometimes, if you already have a character that would be unlocked first, a different one may be unlocked.
- roughly 10 different characters to play with
- no new characters
- each character will have their own skills
- example: Sonic and Shadow not being able to make it up a wall, while Tails can easily fly up there or Knuckles can climb
- stages can be replayed with any character of your choice
- 3DS info: “similar in idea, but smaller in scope”
- devs are trying to fit all of the characters into the 3DS game, but it will feature far fewer stages
- 3DS still features many paths through stages
- 3DS will only ever branch off into 2 stages
- been in the works since before Sonic Generations
- due out this Fall/Autumn, or at the latest, Winter

While it is about time for a new sonic to be announced I doubt this leak is real. that is way to much info to be announced right away. That list literally consists of everything worth building hype and suspense over.

Sounds awesome.

I hope it's not a Sonic Heroes style game with Unleashed/Colors/Generations gameplay. I hated Heroes.

Sonic is a terrible series now anyways. Generations was mediocre at best.

I want to move to a nice, quaint house in the suburbs with the T-Mobile girl and make lots of babies with her.

Cool, if true, I'll probably pick up the PS3 and Vita versions...though I may end up picking up a Nintendo console/handheld version in place of the Vita one

More like Generations was mediocre at worst. Lots of people genuinely thought it was a good game. I, someone who am generally very caustic towards newer Sonic games, thought it was 'ok'... and I'm not exactly someone who is easy to please.

But hey, it's so much easier to just make generic nonsense comments to troll fans of something right?

It was much better than the other recent sonic games which isn't saying much. I had fun with the first 4 acts or so, but the rest of it felt like chore to finish.
