BioWare’s Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, its hedgehog-related DS RPG, will provide a pretty healthy amount of play-time, if this Gamespot interview‘s to be believed.
“For the full single-player gameplay experience, you can expect about 20–25 hours,” said art director Joel MacMillan.
Yep, that means there’s multiplayer.
“There will be some multiplayer ‘trading’ to take advantage of,” MacMillan added.
Game’s out this year. Thanks, MaxConsole.

Couple of playtests just popped up of BioWare’s Sonic RPG, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. There’s one on 1up and one on MTV. Plenty of detail there for those interested, and new screens showing what appears to be a fairly standard team-based FF-esque console RPG combat system.
They’re both taken from the US Nintendo Media Summit. Go see.
Update: GoNintendo’s got one too.

Bioware bosses Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk have been talking in public about DS RPG Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. Big the Cat is about to get a boost, apparently.
“I think maybe the challenge there, if people are not as excited about having the friends, is making them worthwhile, making them a good part of the game,” said Zeschuk. “They’re not going to be gimmicky. They’re not going to be side things. It is actually a core part of the gameplay mechanic. It’s actually, we think, going to revitalize the love of the Sonic friends, especially Big the Cat.”
Good gravy. Not only is Big being thrust back into the limelight, but Bioware is also focusing on “speed” as a Sonic ability.
“We’re really excited with how you combine narrative flow in a way that’s appropriate to the DS platform and aimed at little younger audience — but really, all ages,” said Muzyka. “We’re trying to make a game that is going to appeal to a lot of people. But also to use the best things about the Sonic IP, like speed. It is really about speed for Sonic, but for the other characters it’s about other things. They have their own unique abilities.”
Either really, really awesome, or really, really broken. We’re staying positive. It’s releasing this year.

Sega’s just sent out a press release saying that Bioware DS RPG Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood is going to release in 2008. Sega couldn’t be more specific on the date saying, “We’re not going to be able to say any more than that, to be honest.”
The game’s a bit of an enigma at the moment, but Sonic people being Sonic people it’s sure to sell well. More on this soon.
