This year, SEGA ensures Sonic is more treat than trick

Halloween is infamous for bringing out devilish, frightening, and incredibly scary characters to our immediate attention. Most of the time, that’s a great thing. However, for what feels like the bast brajillion years, we’ve gotten a terrifying version of one of our more beloved favorites, without ever asking for or wanting it. The target? Sonic the Hedgehog. While the Sonic X toon lives on, the days of awesome Sonic video games feels like it has drifted to the distant past. Year after year, fans are excited for, then disappointed with, the latest SEGA has to offer. That is, until this year. A few weeks back, we got Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I – Sonic’s return to 2D glory. Now, coming up, we’re promised two more gems with Sonic Free Riders on November 4th and Sonic Colors on November 16th. With all these release dates circling the Halloween holiday, we can only hope its more of a treat than a trick!

SEGA West’s CEO, Mike Hayes, recently spoke out about Sonic’s recent past, the current state, and the near future, noting SEGA is “passionate about getting Sonic back up to the quality levels we’ve had historically.” The goal is to not only raise the fun, but spread the joy. Sonic 4 hit multiple consoles with the classic approach. Sonic Colors targets the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS interactive audience. Sonic Free Riders will play out for the XBOX 360’s Kinect when it hits stores in a week.

Could the days of Sonic Unleashed be long behind us…?
