After a lengthy stealth name of “Project Needlemouse,” SEGA today officially unveiled the latest Sonic The Hedgehog game.
It’s called, very blandly, Sonic The Hedgehog 4, is a direct sequel to Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles, returns to a familiar 2D presentation, and will release on the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and WiiWare this summer.
The title is actually Sonic The Hedghehog: Episode 1, which means the game will see an episodic release schedule, meaning a little bit at a little time.
The first episode will be available this summer for somewhere around (we guess) $15 across the board.
