SEGA ANNOUNCES PROJECT SONIC FOR 2017 RELEASE
Sega’s announcement of retro throwback title Sonic Mania at a Sonic the Hedgehog 25th anniversary San Deigo Comic-Con presentation wasn’t the only big announcement. Sega also finally confirmed a new major home console release for the franchise via a teaser trailer.
Simply codenamed Project Sonic for now, the trailer, shows a smoldering city being torn apart by gigantic robots before Sonic himself appeared. Rushing to save the day, he’s almost hit by flying debris before the reveal of an all too familiar face, that being “Classic” Sonic from the Genesis days and Sonic Generations. The two once again look to team up before the trailer ends with the tagline “Join the resistance”, and the promise of a holiday 2017 release.
