    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1

    Interview and Video

    [​IMG]

    Features revealed from the interview:
    • Coming Summer 2010
    • It is a downloadable title for PS3/360/Wii
    • Made to be a return to the spirit of the classic Sonic games.
    • 3D modelling on 2D plane.
    • Wii version: 480p with certain areas making use of motion control
    • PS3 version: 1080p with certain areas making use of SIXAXIS
    • 360 version: 1080p
    • Old moves return (spin dash, power sneakers, etc.)
    • Homing attack and Leaderboards are added.
    • Music expected to sound like an "evolution of the original games".
    • First part of a much larger adventure (episodic). Similar to how Sonic 3 was two parts beginning with Sonic 3 proper and concluding in Sonic & Knuckles...Sonic 4 wants to continue that spirit and also be pieces of a larger adventure.

    RIGHT ON! Make downloadable classic Sonic titles and hone in on the 3D Console titles is what I'm hoping for. Then EVERYBODY gets what they want =D

    are you a fan of the new sonic? cause thats the only way a Sonic fan would not be estatic about this.

    the old sonic was the best sonic the world ever had. then Sega screwed up again and again with crappy sonic games. they came close with the day levels in unleashed but ruined it with the night. now finally sega realises that they f***ed up so they are making a new game like the old, in the style of the best games. now do you get it?

    Hell, I AM a fan of the new Sonic. But I'm excited about this because it's still gonna be epic. Hopefully. Definitely going to get the 360 version though as it has no motion control crap. Since it's meant to be classic Sonic fun, I don't want motion anything. Even if it's just flicking the wiimote to do a homing attack.

    As I have said in other threads, it will be great if they do things like this while another team polishes the next 3D title. That way we won't get the glitchy BS from Sonic 06 and we'll still get plenty of Sonic.

    EDIT: Prinny, I was under the impression this wasn't Needlemouse. I could be wrong, but I assumed this was in addition to Needlemouse, which I had thought would be a full game. But if you are in fact correct (which is more than a little possible) then perhaps the other character isn't playable?

    This is Needlemouse.
    It was its name so Sega could keep most of you lot in suspense, but in Chris Jericho build up style I CRACKED THE CODE!
    Needle mouse is another word for hedgehog.
    (Think about it a hedgehog is no more than a mouse with loads of pricks on his back, witch brings me back on to one of my fears)
    What prick shall be with him?

    Yet again I post this comic

    Suprised to see the Wii included. I thought 'Needle Mouse' wasn't going to be on the Wii because of the size restrictions on WiiWare.
