Although we all knew about the game already, thanks to FTP’s seemingly lacking in security Sega has just officially announced Sonic Unleashed, thus making the game officially official. The very official press releases goes on to reveal that the game, which is built with technology called the “Hedgehog Engine” – no we are not joking – will introduce seamless 3D to classic 2D camera transitions to the series, and will be released on PS3, 360, Wii, and even the PS2 “later this year“.

By combining rich and vibrant scenery with dynamic viewpoints Sonic Unleashed will provide an immersive 3D experience whilst keeping alive the 2D gameplay elements and fantastic worlds that Sonic fans know and love” commented Gary Knight, European Marketing Director for SEGA Europe. “In addition to this classic Sonic gaming experience, when darkness sets in Sonic Unleashed players will be able to experience a completely new way to play as Sonic… making this his most exciting adventure yet!
