I grew up playing Sonic the Hedgehog on my Sega Genesis and although there hasn’t really been a decent Sonic game in the past decade or so it still has a special place in my heart and this latest Sonic game that will be released soon may be what the franchise has needed to bring fans back.

The game is a 3D side scroller with occasional shifts of the camera to behind Sonic, very similar to Paper Mario, although the camera angle isn’t used as a game mechanic in Sonic Unleashed. Well the trailer is below and it looks great, I just hope it is what I’ve been waiting all this time for, a good Sonic game.

Sorry for the bad quality video, Sega is forcing websites to pull the video down, this is the best I could do.
