For us, Sonic the Hedgehog was always the poor relation of the 1990s platformer icons. Despite his whizzy ways and his attempts at cool, there was never the love and joy in his adventures that there was in the world of Super Mario, and Sonic never really made the translation over to 3D gaming like the plumber and his gang did.
Having said that, a new game of his is always good news for us gamers, especially when they look as slick and well made as this trailer for Sonic Colours here does. You’ll have to tune out the intensely annoying music, mind you, which we hope isn’t anywhere near the game itself, because that would be a right pain in the backside, and no mistake. The game comes out for Nintendo DS and Wii on 12 November.
