Sega today announced that their long awaited next Sonic game which was previously just called Project Needlemouse will now be called Sonic the Hedgehog 4. It will also be a direct sequel to Sonic and Knuckles on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis.
So does this mean sonic will now eventually return to his roots or will Sega still manage to find a way to mess up what could very well indeed be a great game. We will find out as the game will drop onto the Xbox Marketplace later this year.
Here a new trailer for the game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVvkRCqX3U0&fmt=18
