After a decade of darkness, including a number of games that were hated by the gaming fanbase proper, it looks like it’s time to get excited for some proper Sonic the Hedgehog action.
Just announced for a Summer 2010 release from SEGA is Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, the first in a series of downloadable 2d Sonic games, hearkening back to the original series (which explains why it continues the numbering standard from the Genesis days).
Set to be available for the PSN, XBox Live Arcade and WiiWare marketplaces, if you’re a gamer, you won’t have an excuse to not be excited. Seriously, watch the teaser below and tell me you aren’t geeked.
I’m a 25 year old adult, and my inner 6 year old can’t wait to spin attack my way through this game. Make me proud, SEGA.
