[Update: It seems Sega magazine has removed the "press info" from its site. Be warned, the information contained within this post just shifted from official back to rumor]
Wow. Within less than 24 hours, we have rumors, a leak, a video, and now an
"Sonic the Hedgehog returns for a full-blown, action-packed adventure through the desolate and unpredictable World of Mubuz, a world dictated by an evil Dragon Lord, Immarius. Upon entering Muboz, Sonic fights an evil power which turns all the inhabitants into dangerous beasts.
- Become Wolf Sonic and fight enemies like never before using rapid combo maneuvers and Ring Energy
- Play as Sonic, Knuckles or Tails through 12 packed stages
- Extensive 2D gameplay brings the old Sonic back home"
Even with that limited amount of info at hand, we can say it is good to hear that there will be no extraneous characters. Now remember that the only reason we have this info is due to a leak, so it's likely we won't hear anything more about this until nearly E3. And while we would have liked to have a more "old-fashioned" Sonic story (Robotnik should be bad guy #1) and don't really care for Wolf Sonic, we're willing to give it a try as long as it is blissfully free of anything like this.

wolf sonic? odd, but im willing to try it.
and what the hell was that video at the end under "anything like this" since when did sonic like human people?

The platform(s) it's for hasn't been announced yet, right?

It's coming for 360, confirmed.

Maybe Sega has actually learned from the dud that was Sonic 2006. I refuse to get my hopes up, but I'm keeping an eye on this one. Do we have an actual source that says it's coming for the 360, though? I may have to jump off of a very tall building if the first GOOD high-def Sonic game ends up a PS3 exclusive.

It's going to suck.

Guessing it'll suck ass as well but this gives at least some hope:
"Extensive 2D gameplay brings the old Sonic back home"

... Wolf sonic... T.T That makes me scared for this game. But I guess as long as Sonic isn't kissed by a human woman it's ok. Cause that's just weird. The 2D gameplay makes me want to squeal with joy though.

Sounds good, I've been folowing this on the Sonicstadium, I just hope by stages they mean 12, 2 act stages or 12 stages for each character with diffrent paths for each. I worry about that because in Sonic Rush they say 14 stages and you only get 7 stages for Sonic and Blaze, both the same but with 2 acts each. I pray and doubt this is 6 stages with 2 acts each. Either way this game should be a lot less complex to build so hopefully more time for bug testing will be there.

OMG I totally agree that video was ridiculous!!!!!!!!

@ Sky Shark
you're right to worry, they did it in Secret Rings, too. I was really excited when i saw all the things to do in each world, but kinda disappointed when i found out they were all missions based in one stretch of the level

Meh, you can have Sonic, he is about as much fun as looking at the paltry Wii Mario crapola....

Why would they ruin a perfectly good name like Robotnik? Eggman, bah!
3-24-2008 @ 10:08AM
I thought he was always Eggman in the Japanese version?
Well who knows whats going on with this game, but a Sonic game with 3D graphics and 2D gameplay would kick ass!

How easily people are fooled...isn't April coming up soon? =\
