Update: Because some don’t seem to notice that the “first CG animated film” is listed under “New Show”, I’ll just point this out here: that CG animated film is probably Sonic Boom and not a movie. So with that out of the way, here’s the actual news story:
Those who want a Sonic game with incredibly pretty native 1080p super duper graphics will have to wait pretty long until they get it. Jazwares (the guys who make the Sonic toys) put up a sign at last week’s Nuremburg toy fair with one piece of interesting information: that an unnamed Sonic game will be coming to Playstation 4, Xbox One and Wii U in 2015.
Not listed is the third Nintendo exclusive game. We can’t have a year without any new Sonic games though, so it wouldn’t be surprising if it’d still be coming later this year. There’s also some information about Sonic Boom, the new CG animated tv show coming this fall. However, all of this information was already mentioned in the original announcement.

Looks like the fabled “third game” might not be a Wii U exclusive anymore…
Seeing how Sonic has been getting new games on a yearly basis, the third Nintendo exclusive Sonic game is probably still coming later this year. Also I don’t think they can back out of that contract without getting Nintendo’s lawyers angry.
Seems suspect that they’d let that cat out of the bag but not a word about that third game, unless they gave SEGA fat stacks of cash they can get out of that thing easily.
No PS3 or PC? I’ll be missing this game due to lack of consoles apparently :'(
Which brings us to the question of the questions: will this thing, ASR1-like, have identical gameplay on Wii U, or not.
Still Sega could make a PC release, it’s not like it costs them that much. Unless they’re licensing some nonoriginal songs, in which case, what the hell Sega, how many people will buy a game because of a song.
Wait, they also announced a CG animated movie O.o
Nope, that’s just Sonic Boom. TV shows are also films. They’re also incorrect, Night of the Werehog is the first Sonic CG animated film. :V
If this is a Sonic game that is for all three new gen systems, it could be a sequel to Sonic ’06 or something that doesn’t involve “act” zones.
Well… nope. Just because it won’t be for the 25 anniversary! 😛
Why the fuck would they want to make a sequel to 06?
Why ’06? It was just released on two consoles, while Unleashed was released on four and Generations on three (plus the 3DS). It could be a sequel to either of those instead of the black sheep of the franchise.
By “something that doesn’t involve “act” zones.” you mean you want a bunch of generic realistic environments over surreal imaginative ones right?
Even though I’d like to see Sega try again at something like Sonic 06 in hopes they do it right, even I have to admit that it’s just not happening. Marketing wise, it’d probably be a bad move on their part, and they can’t afford that right now.
That’ll teach those scurvy dogs from Nintendo to take away my Sonic ga–
Oh wait, its not on PC, so I can’t pirate it. Boo this company!
They didn’t officially announce Generations for PC until October.
“There’s also some information about Sonic Boom, the new CG animated tv show coming this fall. However, all of this information was already mentioned in the original announcement.”
So, it was already mentioned that there’s a “CG animated film” coming in addition to the series?
TV shows are films too. Look at what it’s listed under.
I was about to say that a film was listed too! Damn being logged out. Oh we’ll, I still can’t wait for it,
I think that the third game is Super Smash Bros… Which is lame
And the news drought ends here folks! All aboard the hype train! 😀
Wait, THE MOVIE IS GONNA BE A THING?!
Ugh… Yeah, I know Sly Cooper and Ratchet and Clank are getting movies, but… It just feels more right for them.
It’s like I wrote that update for nothing.
Oh, forgot about that. Sorry.
Haven’t been on Retro for months.
Turns out, this is false. This post is from the Senior Community Manager from SEGA of America: http://forums.sega.com/showthread.php?506410-Sonic-game-announced-for-2015-(Wii-U-PS4-Xbox-One)&p=8504554&viewfull=1#post8504554
You know they tried the same thing when stuff about Generations and Sonic 4 leaked right? Here’s a tip SoA PR just say “no comment”.
Jazwares knows about this for the same reason they knew everything about Generations
Could it be Sonic Adventure 3,Brand-new Sonic ’06 or Female Sonic Tales?I suppose to wait.?
