Green Hill (3DS): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nxql0JYBh68
City Escape (consoles): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVc-VDI2y6c
Adorable Picture: http://www.flickr.com/photos/segaamerica/5727213437/in/set-72157626400442837 (note that it appears in a 23-pic set of Generations screens)

3D confirmed for PS3, 360, and (surprisingly enough!) 3DS. 3DS uses Genesis Green Hill 1 as the classic Green Hill act. City Escape video also confirms Rooftop Run 360/PS3.

Update, April 18
Sonic Generations officially announced.

Gameplay Trailer

Update, April 19
In-game footage. Clearly edited, but with clean audio and the majority of the first level for both Classic and Modern styles.



Initial Post by FKE
You all saw it coming. As Sega promised, at exactly 9am (EST) they released a 50 second teaser trailer that shows off what's to come later on this year. (I would post more about the video but who would want to spoil that?)

Although it has no name it's mostly obvious that the title will be 'Sonic Generations'. Not much is known other than the game will be released (With some form of Online content) for the Xbox 360 & Playstation 3 this year. (I assume it's Q4) People with the Nintendo Wii/3DS will be disappointed to find out that they will be missing out on this title. You may also noticed the level mostly confirms the rumor from October.

So other than this [not so useful] info, what are your thoughts on the teaser trailer? It's also my obligation to say "BWAAAAAAAAA, GREEN EYES."

Thorn EDIT: For the sake of moving this post to the site's front page, lemme clarify a few things FKE / Mysterious Figure / whatever-he's-called-today said without citation. The initial trailer reveal was done on the official Sonic Facebook page on April 7 at 9 AM EDT. The "Sonic Generations" expected title comes from a recent URL registration from SEGA that does not have any content at the moment. Official confirmation of consoles is at the end of the video and shows 360 and PS3; Nintendo players shouldn't count themselves out this year, as there were also rumors of 3DS titles and another Mario & Sonic game (and if turning Radical Highway into a snowboarding level didn't do it for you in the last one, you are unpleasable). Various release dates have been thrown around, from the actual 20th anniversary of Sonic on June 23, 2011 to the usual October to December holiday release, but the timing of the trailer showing suggests a later release.

WOO!

I think this may be the greatest discovery since(insert the best discovery here)!!!!!!! Hopefully this time SA1 and SA2 may have an equal. If this happens... the epicness of Sonic will be apparent again(to other gamers, that is[I hope]) ^_^

This doesn't look very interesting yet... I just see Green Hill Zone for the 80th time, a terrible Sonic the Hedgehog game mechanic (sliding) still existing, and a general sense of "hey Mario, us too" in terms of.. the overall feeling of it I guess. I look back and remember how awesome it was to be playing Sonic Adventure 2 and how much it proved that Sonic still had a lot of life and places to go, and the only thing they can come up with here to celebrate the 20th anniversary is a past life? Maybe I'm just being too optimistic :(

I second this notion. The instant I heard that sound, I felt let down by the game already. But who knows, maybe black eyes blue hedgehog will get to do real stuff.

I love that we finally have an official 3D black-eyes model.  Regardless of how good the game is at least there's a start to getting the classic sonic model back.

I could whine about not being able to play my sonic, but honestly, it looks great.  If it doesn't have S06 problems, it looks like it could be Unleashed, with werehog replaced with classic sonic platforming...  and honestly, isn't that what's best for everyone?

Not assuming it'll be great, but they got colors right... maybe 2 in a row?

Rolling physics seem... forced... :( Especially at 0:40 in the interview... Remember Sonic 06? Everything about that game was forced. Granted, this is only one thing that's forced, but nobody seemed to see how much of it was forced before the game came out. And then beyond that it just seems like it goes like "Hey, look at MODERN Sonic. He's got all this STUFF chasing him. And he BOOSTS." And... that's about it.

I really hate the whole concept of this game because it feels like a huge question-mark towards me that asks "What would you rather pay for?" Because I know what Sega is going to do afterwards: put the favored version in a blender, add a bunch of stupid crap, and sell it for all it's worth, forsaking the other for the favored while at the same time not being truly fair to either of them. It's like a cage match where the winner is soaked in the blood of the dead carcass of the loser.

I'm gonna eat a donut. That's something that won't be depressing. :(

I want to think more optimistically(I know about the pessimist being an optimist's realist thing), going by the logic of the newer games, while being much shorter than the previous ones, have been getting better since Sonic '06, so we may have another great game on our hands. Let's hope that it isn't too short, though. Although, I'm starting to believe that I'm the only person looking for the brighter possibilities. :( Oh well, stuff happens.

Hm, I remember I had this vision a while ago of how they should do a 2.5D Sonic game that would sometimes have some 3D segments. Then they announced Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and I was amazed my vision came true, but then sort of threw a fit at how it was just downloadable and didn't make use of new-gen graphics and moving camera angles. I think I had an argument with Rolken over this, I think it was, who said it wouldn't make sense and would never happen. ;P Now this game is exactly like what I imagined, except I didn't see the classic Sonic look coming of course, not to mention the 3D gameplay looks lame as to be expected. Anyway, I'm not saying it'll be good or great, however I am more interested about it than I've been for any Sonic games in a while.

EDIT: oh, I think I got the first signs of my vision coming true with Sonic Unleashed actually. It was pretty weird cause it got announced only a few months after. But it turned out quite different than my vision compared to this. OK I'll shut up now.

Ya know, as pessimistic as I can be, I saw me a spindash as classic sonic...

I mean, honestly, most of us are going to pick it up one way or another (how many of us own 06...), and I don't think this could be the worst sonic outing, as there's already a lot of competition for that award.

It does look breakable in some places, and I hope it is.  Obviously it can't be 2D-game broken, but that doesn't mean I can't hope for similar nonsense.  Looking forward to release and will be keeping an eye on it.  SEGA made colors awesome, let's go for two!

Oh, well, look at that.  The gameplay trailer doesn't mention Wii at all.  Good thing I noticed that before getting my hopes too high XD
Also, you just *know* there's going to be firestorms about peoples' favorite levels missing.

I was about this game. Classic Sonic levels play like the classic game and modern Sonic levels play like Sonic Unleashed/Colors. That classic Green Hill Zone remix is awesome!

I might make a rant about What I think of this so for. I will post the link of my video when it's uploaded. I just need to record myself talking about it.


Don't worry about my rant. I don't think it's really good video to watch.

More like common sense ... I highly doubt there's enough space on disk for every one of the Genesis levels, for example, yet how do you choose which ones to keep?
