Sonic, eh? Talk about how the mighty have fallen. He hasn’t starred in a decent platformer since Sonic Adventure, and some would even argue that point. But last year, SEGA announced Project Needlemouse – claiming a return to form for their beloved, albeit much maligned mascot!
All they said at the time was that Sonic was returning to us. In hi-def (woo), 2D (Woohoo!), and without any guns, swords, “werehogs” or other stupid gimmicks (Yippee!!!) Okay, they didn’t say the last part but it was inferred! As of this week, though, SEGA America are ready to start spillin’. Their blog reveals a competition of sorts! They’ll be testing the knowledge of die-hard Sonic fans throughout the week, and the more correct answers they receive the more they’ll be divulging about the new game!
For example, see the pic at the top of this post? They’ll be removing the names of characters NOT appearing in the new game daily, provided they get enough correct answers. There’s also a bonus points scheme whereby “…at least three bonus points …[will]… give you all something special this Friday!”! Might be worth keeping an eye on this one – I’m still prepared to give the blue guy one more chance!
UPDATE: Charmy the Bee (Sonic Heroes) and Chip (Sonic Unleashed) have both been eliminated! My prediction is that we’ll only be left with Sonic by the end of this!
The Hylian – His gods destroyed him!
