Well, you can’t knock Sega for being predictable, at any rate. A thread on NeoGAF is touting a scan of Nintendo Power’s September issue, which features Sonic front and center, clad in a jeweled gauntlet and hefting a sizeable blade. The cover proclaims the game’s title “Sonic & The Black Knight.”
Aside from the fact that the cover looks pretty legit, this “announcement” was hinted in the last issue of NP, so we’re fairly sure this isn’t just a mean prank.
That does not, however, mean we hope it isn’t.
