We reported yesterday that Sega's great white Sonic hope, WiiWare 'hog platformer Sonic the Hedgehog 4, has been pushed back from its Summer release date to a late 2010 date now instead. Why is that?

It turns out that Sega wants the extra time to take onboard fan feedback about the game, though predictably it didn't go into any more detail about which suggestions it would be implementing.

Just as we were all ruminating whether Sega would be returning Sonic's eyelids to their natural colour or keeping them as blue, we were distracted by this new trailer showing off more loop-the-loops, springs and bright blue skies than has been seen since 1994. You too can watch this shiny new trailer right underneath these words whilst considering other important issues, such as whether the cuffs of his gloves will return to a single fold. So many crucial decisions to be made.
