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

Damn you luke, I wanted to post this but didnt have chance lol... anyway thanks.

I am sure they wont mess it up, in my opinion they havent messed up any games because I like them all to an extent... but I can see why other people seem to think Sonic games have gone down the pan.

Thought I would also add these three higher quality screenshots taken directly from the trailer.

Also that the mystery platform it will be released for will be the iPhone. Altogether the game is scheduled for a July release date but these two bits of information were sneakily found on the Sonic 4 website and later removed.

Hell No... I can't, neigh won't, wait a year for this game. I hate having to wait for games once they have been announced - yeah it builds the hype but take SSB Brawl for example. I bummed off it for over a year and then when it came out I pretty much knew everything in it straight away because I ruined it for myself in anticipation by reading as much as I could on the net.

I like a game to just pop up and then not have long to wait before its release... then I dont have to wait.
