Project Needlemouse


This trailer just recently appeared on the internet and seems to be touting a new 2D / HD Sonic game. Now, considering how brief and uninformative the trailer is, it'd be ridiculous to make any predictions about how this release could turn out. However, that sillohuette at the end does look an awful lot like...

Only time will tell what Sega has in store, eh?

Plus it's called project Needlemouse, which was a very early concept name for Sonic. very intrigued..

My take: It will be an HD 2D Sonic game in the same vein as Sonic 3 and Sonic CD, so there will be some sort of unique feature (akin to time travel or elemental shields). Perhaps wall rebounding will factor in, as the trailer shows Sonic bouncing off walls.
Graphics will either be HD sprites (hopefully) or cel-shaded 3D models (probably). The plot will be stand alone, not picking up from Unleashed, s don't expect Chip to make a Shadow-like return.
Other playable characters will likely include Tails and Knuckles with their classic mechanics, and possibly Shadow (unfortunately).
What I'm really looking forward to: EGGMAN and his badniks.
