Japan Gets Doodle-Style Sonic Platform Game

So I was checking out the Sonic Channel RSS feed this morning and up pops this little game which appears to be a belated birthday present for Sonic, for the month of July 2010 only:

It’s called Sonic Freehand according to the actual blog post (though it just says Sonic the Hedgehog on the title screen) – it’s a 2D platform game entirely in doodle graphics, check out this little animation:

Japan really does get all the cool stuff. I want this 🙁

    Reminds me of the little doodles they drew into the japanese 16bit manuals.

    Doodle graphics, huh? A bit lazy when it comes to art style, especially compared to modern-day art in video games. Still, games like this are a rarity nowadays, so i guess i wouldn’t mind at least trying this game out if I could. But what i’m curious about is this: does this game have it’s own original storyline?
