Information on Sega’s upcoming new Sonic title dubbed, “Project Needlemouse” has been rather scarce since a video released online teased the game, sending fans into a murmur.
SEGA’s Constantine Hantzopoulos confirmed to the folks over at the 4Guys1Up podcast at 1up.com that Project Needlemouse will be a downloadable title. However, he didn’t mention which platforms the title will be hitting. Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network were name-dropped later in the cast, though in a slightly unrelated context.
1up: I think that’s why a lot of people are excited about needlemouse too, because it seems like SEGA aren’t trying to make it as mass market
Hantzopoulos: that’s right, thats right. I’ve been playing a lot of XBLA and PSN games lately. Shadow Complex is great.
Hantzopoulos also mentioned this will be a smaller title, but didn’t clarify as to what that exactly meant.
Sonic Retro will keep you up to date as information trickles in.

Well, that’s me out unless there’s a disc release. Fucking hell…
Yeah i hear you. After Sonic Heroes i am VERY disappointed at sega and sonic team, they killed sonic… and now this!!!!!!!!!! GRRRRR i am mad!!!!!!!!!!
That’s either a huge hint, or the guy likes putting random statements together.
Crap, I think this is the moment were SEGA comes and says how there is a new character in the game called GAY. It’s a shame. I was looking forward to a new EPIC sonic 2D game with SPEED. Not some downloadable crap disaster. Unless SEGA can do a Megaman 9 then we are in fact screwed.
NO NO NO NO!!!!
I honestly don’t care if it’s download and/or disc. I just want the game to be good. I mean, I would prefer a disc release, but whatever.
You’re jumping to conclusions there. Did you even read the TSSZ News story on this? It’s just an odd coincidence that whenever Needlemouse is mentioned, so is XBLN and PSN. Nothing is confirmed yet.
I KNEW IT!! Well thats fucking out for me >.> I need the disc……unless I can get it with my 800 xbox live points >.>
… um wow
Wow….. gay. No Needlemouse for me. Just come out the closet and say it SEGA, tell us that Wii gets crappy storybook titles for the rest of its existence, and HD twins are the ones with the serious Sonic titles now. No need to hide it anymore.
This can’t possibly be true can it?
People are thinking it’s going to be a download only title because a Sega Europe employee mentioned in a n interview that S3&K was doing well in with high downloads in XBLA. Basically he was just referring to how the old games are still popular. You should wait until it’s been definatley proven before posting.
The information presented is top notch. I’ve been doing some research on the topic and this post answered several questions.
Everything is about money these days is it, no one cares about quality only quantity!
