"You'll be able to traverse the game's 12 stages as Knuckles, Tails or the eponymous hedgehog, who has picked up the ability to transform into Wolf"

And so it begins...

On the plus side the game is not being developed by Sonic Team, it's a corroboration of Sega of Japan, America and Europe in an attempt to "revitalise" the Sonic series, so at least they're acknowledging there's a problem.  I also like the more classic approach to Sonic's design, he's small again instead of the size of a human like he was in Sonic 360 and he seems to constantly have a little smile on his face which is a lot better than the "bad ass" Sonic they've been going for in the past few games.

Here's a video with a bunch of leaked screens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqlQZSqC2is&feature=related

Well, the game has Robotnik in a giant robot and Super Sonic so that's good at least.

I was going to post this but I thought everyone would just go down and do some more Sonic bashing.

This looks promising. Hopefully a Wii version will be confirmed.

Double Post, but the guy responsible for finding the leak of this info humiliates SEGA for how careless they were in leaving their PR login info open to the public. SEGA screws up once again.

I do so wish Sonic could be as awesome as Mario..

Sonic Rush was good, not really about exploring (except for finding the fastest path to the end..), but fast is good too, Sonic Rush: Adventure did it much better, you don't fall through stuff by mistake as much. But it's mostly just running, timing stuff, and mashing the trick (x or y) and R buttons so you can boost forever..  Yeah, the Genesis games rocked too much, so now (most of) the newer games suck to make up for it, lol.

I wish I had a nice overclocked genesis and all 3 and a half sonic games.. Or .. Sonic Collection PLUS! (BETTER.)

Do I use too many Parenthesis (sp?(what EXACTLY does that ("sp?") mean anyway?))?

You know what? After thinking about it a lot, the whole werewolf thing isn't really all that much of a big deal to complain about. It could be worse. At least he doesn't have a gun.

Tails should become the wolf.... Makes more sense... Fox - Wolf; Hedgehog - Porcupine; Chinchilla - Rat... Yeah...... that'd be good.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Well at least it's a new, unpredicted, direction for Sonic.
But with the whole transformation thing aside the core gameplay looks great, hope the camera and other controls are better this time around :P.

Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

I'm pretty sure that was the exact plot of Sonic Advance 2. Not that it really matters anyway, the newer games have all focused way too much on plot and it still ends up horrible.

Oh you know what, I am also mixing this up with the plot of StarFox Adventures.

Anybody else think the werewolf thing is copying just a little off Twilight Princess?

That screwup by SEGA is pretty darned funny, btw

I wouldn't say they're copying TP, but a small influence could be from it. Or it could just be something they were inspired from games that allow you to transform, like super sonic but with claws and mangy fur ;D!

Besides TP you had free will to change from Wolf to Human Link; Link was never a "Werewolf", he's pure wolf but with his mind in tact and added abilities with the help of Midna.

Not really. In TP you can turn into a wolf which gives you some different abilities, such as digging and scent tracking. The werewolf aspect in this looks like it probably just makes Sonic much more powerful. Besides it's not like Nintendo invented the idea of turning into a werewolf.

Absolutely right smurfslayer, if anything the werewolf form will give him more than average strength.
But with added power he could become slightly slower; well knowing Sega they probably won't go with the conversion of power with the sacrifice of running speed as they made super sonic and other forms almost limit free.

And Hizzah, trust me this isn't the first game to borrow the werewolf concept :P.
