Could it be? Sega has finally listened to the clamor of their loyal Sonic fans? The hedgehog-loving publisher has now announced that they will be rolling out an all-new Sonic title for 2010 -- in 2D.
Under the name of "Project Needlemouse" (it's working title), the new game will reportedly be an "all new 2D adventure built from the ground up." Accompanying the announcement is the release of a teaser trailer, which features a blue blur zipping through, scooping up golden rings.
Another clue that points to Sonic would be the sound effects and visual cues used, which are all obviously from the very first Sonic game, launched in 1991.
No word yet as to which platform "Project Needlemouse" will be coming to, but we do have the teaser trailer right here.
