New 2017 Sonic Title Gets First Teaser

In addition to the recently announced 2D title Sonic Mania, SEGA also dropped another big reveal at the very end of their 25th Anniversary Celebration for Sonic the Hedgehog on Friday night at San Diego Comic-Con.

After multiple musical performances, interviews and a live cast reading of a scene from the Sonic Boom TV series, producer Takashi Iizuka returned to the stage one last time, where he teased a new game in the franchise developed by the Sonic Team that was not a sequel to any prior titles. With an in-development title of “Project Sonic 2017”, the teaser trailer below shows off an apocalyptic setting, and features the return of Classic Sonic, who debuted in 2011’s well-received Sonic Generations.

With a tagline of “Join the Resistance,” Project Sonic 2017 will arrive next year on PS4, Xbox One, PC and, most intriguingly, Nintendo’s NX, making it the third confirmed title for the mysterious platform alongside The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Just Dance 2017.
