Sega’s famous mascot Sonic the Hedgehog turns 20 this year and as a way of celebrating the character’s 20th anniversary, the company has been teasing a brand new Sonic-themed game. Not only has it been hinted about on Facebook and Twitter, but has also received its own teaser trailer.
As Kevin McGuire over at examiner.com recently noted, the newly released trailer unfortunately does not reveal a title for the upcoming game. However, a recent discovery of domain names obtained by Sega suggests that the new game could possibly be called Sonic Generations.
The trailer begins with Sonic the Hedgehog running through a landscape resembling that of a more traditional side-scrolling Sonic adventure. He is then seen side-by-side with another Sonic, which looks more like the Sonic the Hedgehog character from older style Sonic games.
Although it doesn’t give a specific release date, the trailer — which appears to have created quite a buzz among Sonic fans – ends with the message ‘Coming 2011.’ It also shows that the new game will be available for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Network, Xbox 360 and Xbox Live.
You can view the trailer below this post. Could the two separate Sonic characters in the video be a hint of co-op gameplay perhaps? What do you think of the new teaser trailer?
