Sonic The Hedgehog: Excursion Rumoured For Next-Gen Consoles

…The ring collecting hog looks likely to return for the new generation Xbox in 2013…

Wintos, known to some as the worlds best leaker of Sonic related information known to man having accurately leaked out every Sonic the Hedgehog title since Sonic Unleashed according to ‘Gaf readers has leaked again! The latest Sonic related bombshell has dropped with a new title supposedly coming from SEGA as ‘Sonic Excursion’ which will see our best-loved blue spikey ‘hog join forces with Tails once again.

A few snippets of edited information that is said to relate to the game is given as follows. The first level is called “Shattered Heights” and is similar to the Sonic Generations incarnation of Speed Highway. Very New York themed. Most of the level consists of Sonic and Tails breaking through the windows of buildings and running through apartment hallways, office buildings, and hotel suites with Pixar-like humans gasping and shouting in surprise. Sonic and Tails communicate throughout the level with each other similarly to the conversations in Sonic Heroes, both commenting on their surroundings and giving you advice on how to play the game. SEGA are said to have really wanted to make a Sonic Generations title that played more similarly to the Genesis titles where different characters could play the same levels with the only difference being their personal abilities.

Wintos, who has attended a SEGA presentation quotes:

After this demonstration was complete, we watched a powerpoint presentation with screenshots from the game. We were told how the story would focus on Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, and Dr. Eggman with a couple of appearances throughout the game, but those appearances would have less importance to the plot than Amy Rose’s role in Sonic Unleashed. For example, Amy Rose’s story once you unlocked it would begin at Cream’s house, where we see Cream, Vanilla, Gemerl, two Chao, and some Flickies. Outside of that scene, none of those characters make an appearance outside of one more scene with Cream in it. Emblems will be making a return, and will be earned in various ways with ten emblems per level. They can be earned for completing levels with each character, getting an S rank with all four characters, collecting all red rings with any character, and completing side missions for the level.

The release date for Sonic Excursions is rumoured to be November 2013 for both current and next-gen consoles.

    Play Generations, if you were a fan of it at any gen, you’ll have a blast.

    The Dreamcast levels were by far my favourite, and it was so innovative.
