Looks like Sonic is going back to the 2D means of presentation and gameply. Good move since the 3D games haven't been too convincing (though Hereos, Secret Rings and non-werehog Unleashed were ok, if not captivating, plays). However, SEGA aren't letting on if the game will be released on the Wii. If it is, I will immediately radar it unlike what I did with the black knight (which I ignored).

Having said all that, the 3D Sonic games HAVE sold pretty well on the Wii

I'm guessing they really mean 2.5D, like Klonoa rather than strictly 2D like Wario, hope its 2D and also hope they don't screw up this time.

It won't be for the Wii... Gamespot had a interview with someone at Sega about this game and that person repeatedly stressed the term HD... Which is something the Wii doesn't do. Maybe we'll get a "light weight" version of the game but it won't be the primary focus.

Yep, I agree with @Djungelurban the emphasis on the HD side of this, rules the Wii out unfortunately.
I think that Sega will get this one right, they have continually mastered 2D Sonic with the Sonic Advance and Rush series and as LEGEND MARIOID mentions, the 2D parts of Unleashed were fun.
Who knows they may convert this one to Wii further down the line. Perhaps when Nintendo releases a High Definition console, but that topic is for a completely new forum board and is a subject which I imagine Nintendo Life users have already discussed to death.

I am passionate about retro gaming, from antiquated consoles to the continuation of classics. I am also into 3DS, PS3 and Xperia Play games. I blast my ears to breakneck melodic punk, gruff vocals and nimble alternative guitar hooks. Tweet: @JamieOretro Google+: About Me

They are really missing the mark if they don't release this for the Wii. I know a lot of people who are old SEGA fans who would go nuts about a decent 2D sonic that own only a DS and Wii. It will sell well on the other consoles if its good but the Wii is where the market for that sort of game is.

oh, and didn't SEGA put the "HD" emphasis on the last cross console Sonics? I'd wait for a trailer but I would be surprised if this isn't also a Wii game.

I don't think I can put into words quite how excited I am about this upcoming title. The fact it's called "Project Needlemouse" proves, once and for all, that Sega loves me.

Please excuse me whilst I go jabber on and on endlessly to myself whilst dancing until I collapse into a twitching puddle of Sega love.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

I have this feeling that this game will be a retail PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game. Because, the Wii does not have HD. Regardless, I'm very excited and I will buy this game as soon as it comes out!

It's about time they make another 2D game. Haven't fans been begging for years? Or what's left of fans anyway. If they make it in similarity to Sonic Rush, I'm happy.

If this doesn't come out for Wii, I will be officially pissed off. If all us Wii Sonic fans can get are the storybook crap, I will officially never buy another Sega product again. :-|

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

well they said the same about unleashed and we had a wii version.

But I agree, ignoring the wii is a stupid idea. sonic games sold more on nintendo platforms so it doesn't make any sense.

let's see what happens.
