Sonic 2017 1

Well as it would turn out Sonic Mania wasn’t the only big announcement Sega had up their sleeves during Sonic’s big 25th birthday stream. They also showed off a new trailer for a game that for now is simply known as Project Sonic 2017.

We didn’t get any gameplay this time but it seems to take place in some dystopian setting where Doctor Eggman rules with an iron fist! It’s up to Sonic and ….Sonic (in classic form.) to stop him.

The inclusion of both modern and classic Sonic leads me to believe this will be a game much like Sonic Generations in that it will feature both 3D Sonic Colors like levels along with the 2D platforming of classic Sonic. This however is just speculation for now.

No hard release date yet of course, but according to the trailer it’ll be out for PS4, XBox One, NX, and PC sometime during the holiday season of 2017. Checkout the trailer below:

About Aaron Evangelisti

Aaron is a lifelong video games enthusiast who's been playing since the days of the NES. He enjoys just about all types of games from RPGs, to platformers, to strategy. He also fancies himself a bit of a writer so writing about video games makes sense, right?

    The trailer looks very Sonic ’06-esque. Looks like they have a reasonably competent team on it this time though, maybe this one will actually be good.

    • Jeff Neuenschwander

      Well, Sonic 06 was also done by Sonic Team. However, that was before they figured out how to make a good 3D Sonic game. Since then, they’ve done Unleashed, Colors, Generations, and Lost World, all of which get passing grades from me (though there were issues in some of those games – I’m looking at you, werehog). So I think things will be fine.

  • Lord Ackercocke

    Sonic Colours was a good game so hopefully, Sonic Team can pull it off again. This is the 1st time i’ve seen NX listed. It is a welcome sight.

  • Mr0303

    The trailer was a bit weird with it’s darker tone, but the game is from the same people who made Colours and Generations and judging by the appearance of the original Sonic this could very well be Generations 2, which is awesome. Curious to see more.

    “but it seems to take place in some dystopian setting where Doctor Eggman rules with an iron fist!” When I read this I immediately thought of the old Sonic Underground cartoon.

    • Jeff Neuenschwander

      I was actually thinking of Sonic SatAM after reading that.

    • TylorW

      And yet no one thinks of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood?

    • Jeff Neuenschwander

      No, but that reminds me, I’ve gotta actually start playing that.

  • Jeff Neuenschwander

    Nice to see SEGA go back to this style, as well as the 2D classic style with Sonic Mania. I wish we some polished parkour-style gameplay a la Lost World, but there’s nothing wrong with some more Day-Time-Unleashed/Colors/Generations style gameplay.
