Sega’s European community manager, ArchAngelUK, has said that some “franchise-changing” news on Sonic will be coming on Thursday.
It was also mentioned during his “radio show”, according to GAF, that there would be an announcement on Sonic Colors later today.
That has since turned out to be a pre-order item for the game in the US, where if you pre-order the Wii version at GameStop, you get an absolutely ridiculous hat in the shape of Sonic [via CVG].
We didn’t know what to say when we seen it, either.
Currently, Sonic Colors is in development for Wii and DS, while Sonic Free Riders will be coming to 360 via Kinect and Sonic 4 will be releasing on PSN, Xbox Live Arcade and WiiWare later this year.
Lets see what happens, then.
