SEGA® America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd., today announced details of Sonic Generations™, the highly anticipated video game title in development to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 20th Anniversary. Delivering the definitive gaming experience for Sonic fans old and new, Sonic Generations™ sees Sonic the Hedgehog playable as both the much loved classic 1991 character, and the modern day video game hero he has become in this exciting new fast paced adventure. Sonic Generations™ will speed into stores for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system for Holiday 2011.

Set across three defining eras from 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog video game history, the instantly recognizable environments of Sonic Generations have been re-built in stunning HD and are now playable in both classic side scrolling 2D from 1991, as well as modern 3D style found in Sonic’s most recent adventures. Each incarnation of Sonic in Sonic Generations comes complete with his trademark special move, Spin Dash and Spin Attack for Classic Sonic, and the Homing Attack and Sonic Boost for Modern Sonic. An innovative new interactive menu system allows for complete immersion in Sonic’s universe with favorite characters and hidden treasures gradually being revealed throughout the game.

“Sonic Generations will certainly be a fitting celebration for Sonic’s 20th Anniversary,” commented David Corless, Global Brand Director for Sonic. “By having the classic 1991 Sonic that many fans know and love team up with his modern day incarnation, we are bringing back the nostalgia of the early days of Sonic and combining it with the innovation and stunning HD technology of the modern gaming era. Sonic Generations will bring to life the last twenty years of Sonic’s universe in a truly unique and imaginative way.”

Sonic’s universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power creates ‘time holes’ which pull him and his friends back through time. As a result, he encounters some surprises from his past history including Classic Sonic, Sonic as he was in 1991. Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic must defeat this strange new enemy, save their friends, and find out who really is behind this diabolical deed...

Let's hope it's a less cheap job than Sonic 4 was.​

So, along the lines of what I expected: Unleashed/Colors style, new levels themed after old Sonic levels. Still surprised this isn't on a Nintendo platform, but I'm guessing Sega will announce another anniversary game (other than the new Mario & Sonic) closer to E3.

There are sceens on the site, but they are so small that to rip them would be idiotic. Wait for official screens.

I just read that PR multiple times and still don't quite get how the game is going to play. Will each environment be playable in both 2D and 3D?
Sounds like 2D if you choose to play as Classic Sonic, and 3D if you choose to play as Modern Sonic, complete with their own move set.

This is GAF. Did you see the Captivate Teaser Thread? We analyze pictures that end up being ridiculous dimensions like 32x15.

So what you're telling me is:

1) Sonic is his own shitty friend?

2) Modern Sonic is this game's Werehog?

Wow, so Sonic: Edge of Time wasn't too far off, then.

Glad to know Classic Sonic's going to retain his classic moveset.

As a celebration of classic Sonic I expect Chili Dogs, "Robotnik", Scratch & Grounder, and Steve Urkel.

Sonic’s universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power creates ‘time holes’ which pull him and his friends back through time.
Ehhh...

So based off of which Sonic you choose, you get two different types of gameplay or at least a different route on the level?

No Nintendo. Not even a PC version. Soo... Super Wii releases in Fall?
They are probably getting their own exclusive Sonic game separate from this one like before.
