Default Sonic Unleashed

SAN FRANCISCO (April 3, 2008) - SEGA® of America and SEGA of Europe, Ltd. today announced that everyone's favorite hedgehog is once again breaking new ground in the upcoming title, Sonic Unleashed™. The latest installment in the multi-million selling franchise starring the beloved blue hedgehog will take players on an unforgettable high-speed journey around the globe in a way never before experienced in the world of Sonic. Fans will be treated to an array of new, exciting and unique next generation features to heighten their experience. Sonic Unleashed is currently under development for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, Wii™ home video game system from Nintendo and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system.

"It is an exciting time for the Sonic franchise as we look to reinvent our hero while staying true to the spirit of what made him an industry icon," said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President of Marketing at SEGA of America. "Sonic Unleashed will introduce a new, unexpected storyline along with innovative gameplay that compliments traditional skills and features, allowing players to experiment and engage in new ways."

Having been broken apart by the evil Dr. Eggman, it's up to Sonic to put the pieces of the world back together again by retrieving the power of the chaos emeralds! In doing so, Sonic will find himself in a race against time and faced with an unusual situation that will challenge him in ways never before seen. Both day and night play different, yet important, roles in Sonic's newest quest... as the sun sets, a new adventure awakens. By completing a wide variety of action-packed stages, spanning the seven broken continents of the world, gamers will need to unleash Sonic's amazing abilities to save the world, and himself!

Players will have an opportunity to engage in ways never before done with the Sonic franchise, so in addition to running at high speeds, which will be highlighted in four new speed mechanics, combat fighting now becomes possible. New combat, movement, functional abilities and platforming will be introduced to offer increased depth and variety.

Sonic Unleashed will offer a re-defined experience for fans and newcomers of the franchise alike by combing picturesque & detailed scenery, an expansive world with multiple paths to choose from and dynamic viewpoints for an immersive and renewed gaming atmosphere. Along with seamless 3D to classic 2D camera transitions, the game is built on a powerful, new proprietary "Hedgehog Engine," which introduces impressive lighting abilities and new technology tailor made for Sonic's new speed capabilities. Under development for approximately three years, the Hedgehog Engine will help to produce a visually rich next generation look and feel with elements of classic Sonic gameplay components.

You know, everything looked good, even better than the first trailer, until the whole transformation section came around. God, he's slow again...

Technically, I knew about the whole transformation thing, but I was really hoping they would continue the whole speed thing. I expected maybe different abilities related to running so that 'Nighttime' Sonic has exclusive access in particular areas that 'Daytime' Sonic could not. Least somewhere along those lines...

Can't they just learn from their retro and Game Boy predecessors

Beasty Sonic adds a new dimension to the game that Knuckles could have filled >.> Maybe.

I will buy this game regardless. Mmmm Sonic.

I'm getting it anyway.. Even thought I should've learned of Sonic the hedgehog 2006, the fiasco it was... but ah well, I'll try this one when it comes out on the holidays~

I'm still not convinced with the werehog thing but atleast it has better graphics

When I first saw the Werehog's gameplay screenshots, they reminded me of Kingdom Hearts hack and slash action. Watching the gameplay video further makes me think of Kingdom Hearts =o

Lol, my roomate saw this and shouted about how his inner fanboy is crying.

Then he saw thefirst trailer and nearly cried in joy. heh.


After the beast mode one, he started being all "Defend sonic to the death" and is gonna get it anyways.


At least he's not crying now.

One of the first Sonic games I've anticipated for a pretty long while.
If it plays anything like it looks. I'll return to my Sonic fandom.

*saves up for 360...* D:

Fable 2 (main reason), Halo 3 (meh), Grand theft auto, and now sonic.


the werehog is growing on me...it looks okay i guess it adds like a break from racing around the place and lets you chill and beat up the guys.

Anyways YOU'RE TOO SLOW.
