Sonic the Hedgehog Gets New Logo, Possibly New Game for 25th Anniversary
The average lifespan of a hedgehog is 2 to 5 years.
Den of Geek also noticed that Crush 40 lead singer Johnny Gioeli posted a few words on his Facebook that might have revealed the existence of an anniversary game. The post has since been pulled, but according to Den of Geek, this is what it said:
"We are planning a few performances for 2016 to commemorate the anniversary of Sonic. We might participate in writing new songs for the anniversary game... stay tuned..."
However, on Crush 40's Twitter, the band says they don't know anything about a Sonic anniversary game.
Must be fake rumours. RT @Cameron13H there are lots of rumors about it but they could be fake rumors.— crush40 (@crush40) January 4, 2016
I always try my best to respond to my fans... but I can say it is wasting time to have conversations regarding "future Sonic games" with me.— crush40 (@crush40) January 4, 2016
Crush 40 has composed music for Sonic games in the past and also made a remix of the Sonic the Hedgehog CD song "Sonic Boom."
No official confirmation has come from Sega at this time. However, there is a Sonic game already slated for release in 2016. Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will release on the 3DS sometime this year.
