Some video and screens came out of what looked
like a new Sonic the Hedgehog game, identified as Sonic Unleashed.
After this leak, Sega issued a press release to a German magazine
called Sega On confirming the existence of the game -- and then
Sega On removed it. Sega On now
says that Unleashed is an unprecedented collaboration between
Sega teams in Japan, Europe, and the U.S., designed to "rebuild the Sonic
brand and prove that it could work in 3D environments." It involves a
werewolf-style Sonic, either as a player transformation or as an enemy.
It's all very confusing, but we can at least say with some certainty that
some Sonic game is coming to some system.
