Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (Wii, PS3, 360, iPhone)

Hey there SEGA fans!

Today is the day youve been waiting for. In the months since we announced a special little game code named Project Needlemouse, you guys have bombarded us with great interest and questions about what the game might be, who that figure in the silhouette really is, and when we were going to start releasing more info about the game.

Well, read closely and rejoice because today, were finally ready to start talking to you guys more about what Project Needlemouse is all about!

This week, were going to reveal a full list of playable characters in Project Needlemouse - if you guys can live up to our oldschool Sonic challenge, that is! Heres how it works:



1: The Details: Each name on the picture above is a potential playable character in Project Needlemouse. However, not all of them are going to make the cut and each day this week until Friday, were going to update this picture with a rejected stamp over those who will not actually be showing up!

2: The Challenge: Answer our trivia questions about oldschool Sonic games! (Genesis era) Well post trivia questions each day on a specific part of our SEGA/Sonic sites, and you all have to work together to figure out the right answers and post them there! Each day well challenge you guys to get a certain number of people to post the correct answers and if you meet that challenge, well remove more names from the picture in a new blog the following day!

*About Bonus Points: If you go above and beyond the expected results, the community will earn a bonus point for that day. Earn at least three bonus points and well give you all something special this Friday!

3: The Schedule:

* Monday: SEGA Blogs
* Tuesday: SEGA/Sonic Facebook
* Wednesday: Official Sonic Forum
* Thursday: SEGA Twitter

Now, honestly? This definitely just sounds like nice bit of trolling on Sega's part. Especially with that "Sonic's new Friend", thing (which as we should know, is a misnomer, since that was Sonic's name during the early days of the Sonic 1 Project development).

So, basically, it's looking like none of these picks will make it (thank God). And no Tails/Knuckles either means they're not here at all, or they'll be secret character characters.

But any way...

Quote
Remember: Its all about momentum. This statement holds as true with this challenge as it did in the Sonic games that many of us grew up playing.

Using new fresh from the oven modern-day characters as a part of this? that's definately something to laugh at (Shade and Chip are TOO new) when the game releases. Sure, Amy being there makes sense, she was introduced into the CD era. Now.. about those overshadowed characters (I'm talking Tiara, Bomb, Bean, Bark, etc)..  :\

And you know what? make some "T" or "M" game character a mascot while we're at it (maybe Bayonetta, but who knows, Konami did that with Snake and Sparkster). It's back to square one in gaming.
Workshop/DA/YT/Photobucket なにかんがえてるの!?
So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

I don't even know most of those characters.
I hope they all get rejected.

Again, this is part of the "joke".

Every day until Friday, they're going to cross off some characters who will then be "confirmed" to NOT appear n this game.

Chip is impossible, given what happened in Unleashed. And "Mr. Needlemous" is another name for Sonic himself.

"Mr. Needlemous" is another name for Sonic himself.

I'm really hoping they troll everyone by having only "Mr. Needlemouse"  and Sonic left at the very end, and then crossing off Sonic.


They then introduce the mild mannered Mr. Needlemouse. He is a very slow mouse, and is nothing like Sonic.

But little does anyone know, Needlemouse is actually the secret identity of Sonic because, while he is a rodent, he is not a mouse, much like Clark Kent is Superman!

Mr. Needlemouse as a truly new character could still be interesting too.

To be quite frank, I wouldn't put it past them to put up Chip or "Needlemouse" in the game, simply to [tornado fang] with people. The one character I know damn well they won't put in as a serious character is "Froggy", simply because he technically isn't a character but just the name of the frog Big is always with, and even going into "joke" character territory, there's no possible game play possible for his size, stature, and lack of abilities unless they come up with some bull-[parasitic bomb] ones, or if they make a frog-like character named Froggy through some sort of BS.

Let's [tornado fang]ing see if they leave Shadow as a playable character.
Tough, it is possible they will troll the entire fanbase, by leaving only Sonic.

I don't care who's playable as long as every stage consists of crazy speed platforming.

It's just going to be Sonic.

I'd laugh if this was an origins story game, the "Kintobor" comic was made canon, and Mr. Needlemouse was Sonic before the accident and basically the game's Hard Mode.

Go to that site and bookmark it, the updated image is the one concerning Day 2.

And off topic, Shenmue is going to be in the Sega All-Stars racing game.

Vixy you're a Tikal fan, too? I liked her character a lot! I do hope she makes a reappearance in the series again since Chaos did once without her!

I can imagine the fanboy/fangirl rage when Shadow is taken off the list. : D
