The first sequel to the Sonic the Hedgehog series in over 15 years is currently in development by Sega and is due release on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii later this year.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 will be released in downloadale episodes with part one being available this summer and will be a direct sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic and Knuckles.

The game will be a two-dimensional side-scrolling platformer reminiscent of the original Sonic games and will follow the adventures of the series' main protagonist, Sonic the Hedgehog.

Following the destruction of the Death Egg on Angel Island, Sonic takes a break and explores new territories by himself. However unknowingly his nemesis Doctor Eggman had also survived their last encounter and is preparing a new trap to get rid of Sonic.

Rumour has it that a version will also be coming to Nintendo DS.

Finally! I have been saying this for years.

Sonic just hasn't worked in 3D, there have been the odd games that are better than others but none have matched the originals.

I remember getting Sonic Adventure on my DC when that came out and being all excited about Sonic in 3D, especially after how amazing Mario 64 was.

Was so dissappointed. The speed of Sonic really just didn't lend itself to that style of game, don't get me wrong, it was a great game, just not special.

Now to get Sonic Team to do a GOOD version of NiGHTs for the 360.
This is a good move! Sonic never really evolved into anything better than it originally was - some of the latest games were truly dire.
Looking forward to this.

Though I liked the Sonic Adventure games, the 2D ones will of course always be the best ones - and I always preferred the name Doctor Robotnick than Eggman - Eggman was just what Sonic always used as an insult!

Actually I think Eggman is what he is called in Japan, for some reason it was Robotnik over here?
