Sega has been on a roll of sorts over the past few weeks, showing off next-generation arcade games on its new Lindbergh board one day, then revealing a Sonic racing game for the PS2, Xbox, and GameCube (Sonic Riders) that "integrates extreme sports, high-speed racing and head-to-head battles" another. Late Thursday, Sega surprised us again (perhaps not so surprisingly) with the announcement that the next "traditional" Sonic game would be arriving on both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 sometime next year. Yuji Naka will be holding the reins for Sonic's next-gen debut, a "re-invention" of the franchise that will "create the most intense sensation of speed ever experienced in videogames" with "an innovative combination of art, physics and game design."
Sega also mentioned when Sonic Riders and Chromehounds-From Software's online-enabled Xbox 360 mech-combat game-would both be released (i.e., winter 2006 and spring 2006, respectively), but I think we all want to know how much more hardcore Sonic's gonna be to show that other, more violent hedgehog Sega's been touting lately who's boss.
