Project Needlemouse Is Now Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I
SEGA has finally announced the official name for Project Needlemouse! From here on out, it will be known as Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I! The news was released on Gamespot.com at Midnight PST. We now finally have a true sequel to Sonic 3 & Knuckles after all these years. According to Gamespot, the game is going to pick up where Sonic & Knuckles left off. Does that mean the story is going to pick up there as well? I can only assume so, but time will tell us for certain. Sonic 4 will be released this summer for download on the XBox, PS3, and yes, even the Wii! The game will also feature motion controls for the Wii and PS3, although it is still unknown as to what they will be used for.
The main question I am asking is, “What does the subtitle, Episode I imply?” It could mean that the game is going to be a big one and they are releasing it in parts, “episodes.” Maybe this episode will have Sonic as the playable character while possibly Episode II will have Tails, Knuckles, or someone else as the main protagonist. For now it is uncertain what the subtitle actually means. But I’m sure we’ll be finding out very soon!Will Sonic 4 live up to its hype. I personally think it can. SEGA sure seems pretty positive about it. What do you think?
