Rumor: Hugely ambitious Sonic game in development, announcement on Feb. 2nd

February 2nd is "Hedgehog Day" which has been a special day for Sonic since Sonic 3 was announced that day all those years back. Apparently Sonic Stadium has sources that have uncovered details for the next Sonic game, and it sounds like Sonic Team is going all out with it.

Here are the details

- Game has been in the works since before Sonic Generations
- Out this fall/autumn or winter at the latest
- Wii U, PS3, 360, 3DS, Vita, PC, ďnext-genĒ console versions
- Console version will feature switches between full 3D movement and 2D side-scrolling sections
- Multiple routes
- There will still be many paths through stages, but it looks like every stage will only ever branch off into 2 stages
- Each route in a stage will lead to one of two or three exits at the end that will each take you to a different stage
- You will always end up at the same final stage
- Final stage count hasnít been decided, but devs will add at least 20 different ones, not including boss battles
- Begin the game with Sonic and unlock other characters by completing stages
- Doesnít mean 20+ characters will be playable
- Each character has his/her own skills to help them progress in stages easier where others will have more difficulty or simply cannot ala Sonic 3 & Knuckles and the Sonic Advance series
- Ex: Sonic and Shadow canít make it up a wall, but Tails can easily fly up there or Knuckles can climb, allowing them access to an exit Sonic and Shadow canít reach
- Stages can be replayed with any character of your choice
- 3DS game will be like Sonic Rush
- Developers are trying to fit all of the characters into the game, but it will feature far fewer stages
- SEGA has its best developers working on the games

Return of multiple playable characters, 20 stages with multiple routes? Im praying this is true!

If true this may be the first Sonic game I've owned since I was...10 or something.

I actually enjoyed Sonic Generations so I'm excited about this now.

This was how Shadow the Hedgehog basically was. Good idea there but his game was below average.

The way the level in Shadow the Hedgehog progressed wasn't the problem, it was only playing as Shadow and using guns that was the problem....

I believe Sonic Generations broke the Sonic Cycle

Quoting this since the other is long. That's what I mean. The idea of branching paths is great but not with Shadow doing it his car and weapon way.

when are they going to learn that full 3d movement is a bad idea?
