New Sonic might hit Xbox One, PS4, Wii U in 2015

Update: Sega says the information is incorrect.

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.

Gamespot- Do just a tiny bit of research before posting garbage.  Or is it that you know you're not journalists.  I can make up stuff too.

Don't forget Jet Set Radio Future HD, a new Virtua Fighter game that has at least some story elements to it, and a Shenmue HD Collection.

I'm always amazed at how unsympathetic some Sega fans are when it comes to Nintendo fans. God knows if the WiiU was made by Sega and called the Dreamcast 2 you wouldn't be complaining. You would've bought it already. Oh and don't tell me Sega doesn't make clunky, gimmicky stuff. Sega Toilet anyone?

Sega flat out said the third Nintendo Sonic game hasn't been announced yet so NO it's not Smash and NO it's not the 3DS Lost World. You'll probably have to wait a while to play Sonic on something else.

It was 3. No, the port or smash doesn't count. It must be 3 stand alone sonic titles.

Yes Sonic Generations was fantastic and so was Sonic Colours. Both got high praise from critics and gamers.

I thought the contract was for 2 nintendo exclusive games? Does the port for Lost world to 3DS count? Or perhaps Super Smash?

Sonic has been crap since the fall of Dreamcast

Sega did shortly after the Wii U came out. The agreement was the next 3 sonic titles being released exclusively for nintendo platforms hence why we haven't seen a sonic game on xbox or ps since all stars racing. They already released lost world and mario and sonic at the olympics so they have one left.

Odd, I don't seem to care. Oh well.

Contract? Who would sign a contract that would restrict you to one or so machiens and one company till you fulfilled the mandated number of exclusives?

Andy Yuan

Because they know it'll suck so bad.

I think it's still happening but a PS4 and X1 release was false. Sega is still under contract with nintendo and has to produce 1 more nintendo exclusive sonic game. Hopefully it's Adventure 3

SEGA don't drill the final nail into poor Sonic he was loved by many but you've turn him into something that annoying to hear & read(I didn't read the post just commented like 89% of us).

Well at the end of the day over yesterdays news that Soinc wont  be coming to next gen but how about put all the 2d sonic games in big bundle for ps3,ps4,xbox360,xbox1,WillU,pc because not every 2d sonic game wasn't on there when come out for ps2.

I hope they bring back the Sonic Adventure: Battle series. All the Sonic games made after that have been garbage imo.

There's not enough fun and easily accessible same-system co-op games for Xbox One, I'd like to see something I could play casually with my friends or girlfriend... Sonic could be an option (?)

lol, really this is sort of old news. Not sure how many people tend to get a hold of insider information, but one piece I came across (from a very reliable source who is also the one who leaked Unleashed as well as a few other Sonic games), stated that the next Sonic would be for the Wii U, PS4, and "Next Gen Xbox." Other pieces of info said that it would be more in lines with the Adventure series, and go a bit towards the realistic side again. It also mentioned other characters being playable.


Thing is, you still have to take that with a grain of salt. Turns out the three consoles were right, and the 2015 release date which was listed was right, but I'm going to wait until they show off more before I actually believe everything I personally learned.


I mean, heck. When I was tipped off about Sonic 06, I was told that it'd focus on Sonic and Shadow, and have Sonic traveling in the past with the Chaos Emeralds. While it was right about the time travel thing, the rest of what it stated was false.

Meh. I swear the only reason Sonic ever became popular is cause they gave away free copies of Sonic 2 with every Sega Genesis.

Crazy Taxi, Outrigger 2, Street's of Rage, Phantasy Star.... Speaking to the Choir man! :)

@playstationzone Sonic Mega Collection Plus on PS2 was awesome.  The only thing missing from that was probably Sonic CD and Knuckles Chaotix
