Sega showed off a new Sonic game in a teaser trailer on Sonic's official Facebook page today. The trailer is just 50 seconds long and does not offer much in the way of details concerning the game.

However, the trailer does announce that the unnamed game will be released in 2011. Also, at the conclusion of the trailer, the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox Live, and PlayStation Network logos are shown.

As for what is shown in the trailer, the teaser spot shows Sonic zipping through a sparsely colored environment, complete with series familiar checkered hills and loops. Interestingly, at its conclusion, Sonic meets up with what appears to be a clone of himself. The only difference between the two characters is Sonic's eyes are green and the other's lack a hue.
