Update: Sega has put the brakes on the idea of a new Sonic the Hedgehog title for 2015, saying that the information from the Nuremburg Toy Fair was incorrect.

"Sega is yet to announce details of upcoming console video games for Sonic the Hedgehog or further details regarding the new Sonic CG TV series. The recent information coming out of Nuremburg Toy Fair was incorrect," a Sega spokesperson said to GameSpot.

Original story: A new Sonic game is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U in 2015, if this promotional sign is correct.

The sign was on display at a toy fair in Nuremberg, Germany last week, where toy maker Jazwares was showcasing a line of Sonic toys. The sign was first posted to German website Spindash.de.

In addition to the 2015 Sonic game, the sign lists the recently released Sonic: Lost World for Wii U and 3DS and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games: Sochi 2014 for the Wii U. It's also accurate in its description of the upcoming Sonic animated show, Sonic Boom.

Last year Nintendo announced it had entered a partnership with Sega to publish three Sonic games on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, with the first two being Sonic: Lost World and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games: Sochi 2014. The third game has yet to be announced.

Last week, we reported that Warner Bros. pulled the plug on its DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins on the Wii U, prompting Nintendo to refund consumers who bought the game's season pass.
