Sonic Generations will feature a time-travelling storyline, as well as environments that are playable in both the classic 2D side-scrolling mode and the 3D style from the more recent Sonic titles. Each of the two incarnations of Sonic will have their trademark special moves to use.

Classic Sonic features a Spin Attack and Spin Dash, while the modern day Sonic features a Sonic Boost and Homing Attack. Sega also promises that the new game will feature a new interactive menu system. It looks like the game will also provide players with plenty of unlockable content as well.
