Sonic Generations gets an official trailer
It’s official! In Sonic Generations, Sonic teams up with Captain James T. Kirk to punch Malcolm McDow — Oh, wait a minute.
Actually, in celebration of the blue hedgehog’s 20th anniversary, Sonic Generations teams up modern green-eyed Sonic with the chubbier, stubbier Sonic from the ’90s as they run, dash and bash their way through classic stages throughout Sonic’s history since 1991, recreated in HD graphics for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Classic Sonic’s levels are multi-tiered side-scrollers, while Modern Sonic’s are the behind-the-back race courses of recent games, though both Sonics will be able to run through each others’ stages. As well as stages, enemies and remixed music from all three eras (classic, Dreamcast, modern) will return.
According to a press release, the story involves “time holes” which pull Sonic and his friends back through time, where he meets Classic Sonic, Sonic as he was originally on the Sega Genesis. Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic must then save their friends and find out who is really behind the time-traveling antics.
My hope: The culprits are the various Robotniks from the 90s cartoons and Archie Comics, teamed up with the more modern Eggman, with Metal Sonic from Sonic CD (a game which isn’t represented nearly enough as it deserves) in a Darth Maul sort of role.
Call me, SEGA! I’m available for script polishing.
Sonic Generations should see release this holiday season.
