Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 Latest Updates
How exactly an open-world Sonic title would work in practice is anyone's guess, but never put it past the fans of the speedy blue hedgehog to conjure up all manner of inconceivable situations for the creature that just won't sit still.
SEGA's blue poster boy Sonic the Hedgehog is set to return to the land of television. He's already speeded his way through four TV series, as well as appearing in over 70 games... what's another bash at TV?
They're describing the tentatively named 'Sonic Boom' as an "action packed comedy series" aimed at children 6-11. It'll debut first in the US on Cartoon Network. Tails is on-board.
Sonic the Hedgehog is gearing up for a new adventure it seems as SEGA just yesterday has filed for the trademark of 'Sonic Lost World' in Europe. Details are non-existent for the game but we know its name at least.
Now let the speculation run wild. So 'Lost World' sounds dinosaury, right? Okay then Sonic gets 'lost' in a 'world' full of dinosaurs. Mystery solved. Next trademark please SEGA - that one was too easy.
The currently releasing Sonic 4 returns to those 2D view platform roots for the blue hedgehog, but Team Sonic boss Takashi Iizuka wants to go back to the "forward view 3D action".
He wants more Sonic Adventure type fun, but exploring "something completely new" in the 3D space. Next-gen Sonic will "always remain stylised" and not adopt realism - phew!
Sega has announced that some Sonic content is now available for PC, including the debut of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 on the platform.
