As a research site on the good (and bad) of the Sonic series, we couldn’t possibly let this one slip past us.
Russian Sonic site Sonic Scene posted what appears to be the music used in the very first trailer of the later ill-regarded Sonic The Hedgehog (2006). What’s special about all of this is the track was never used in game or, more over, released in any sort of auditory form aside from a trailer with off-mic noise.
But thanks to the efforts of Russian Sonic fan Mefiresu, he found a song that is strikingly similar to the audio used in the video. You can grab the near-five minute clip and listen for yourself right here.
What’s this? Something about Sonic Generations that’s not a rumor? It’s an announcement of an announcement, but we’ll take it anyway.
By way of Spanish-site Sonic Paradise, the official Japanese site Sonic Channel has posted that there will be a massive information dump on the site about Sonic Generations. But that’s not all.
If the prospect of even more Sonic Generations videos and photos isn’t enough, Sega is teasing an extra special secret surprise to be released with all that information. It’s unknown if it’s another Sonic game announcement, a release date for the demo, or even confirmation of Generations popping up on some sort of Nintendo console.
Watch and wait as always, but when Sega drops the bomb, we’ll definitely bring the fallout to you.
