[Update 2] Sega has officially unveiled Sonic Boom for 3DS and Wii U. Check out the debut trailer above.
[Update 1] A brand-new Sonic game has been prematurely outed. It's called Sonic Boom, features slightly redesigned character models (pictured above), and will be coming exclusively to 3DS and Wii U. Expect a formal announcement from Sega very soon.
You can see the announcement trailer right here.
[Original] This year will reportedly "mark a renaissance for Sonic the Hedgehog." In fact, according to a piece of alleged promotional material (via NeoGAF), Sega is going so far as to label 2014 the "Year of Sonic."
Wii U owners are still patiently waiting for another exclusive Sonic game as part of Nintendo's three-game partnership with Sega. Might this "renaissance" involve this new exclusive? Here's to hoping. After all, last year's efforts weren't particularly great.
