Sonic Unleashed a little bit delayed in North America

Japan still has Sonic bound-and-gagged tightest, but North America’s now officially detaining the blue hedgehog-man as well. Probably as some kind of symbolic gesture.

According to IGN, Sonic Unleashed’s PlayStation 2 and Wii iterations will arrive on schedule, but after that, the scrambling begins. First up, the game isn’t hitting North American Xbox 360s until November 24 – a week after its scheduled release. The PS3, meanwhile, won’t be downing its helping of hedgehog until an unspecified date in December.

Bad signs? Probably. But we still hold out hope that the game’s been delayed because it’s too awesome, and Sega’s feeling merciful.
