Sega recently announced the arrival of a new Sonic game in 2022. If the publisher has been rather evasive on the subject, the players, them, knew how to put the nose where it needed to try to find interesting information.
It is soon the birthday of our favorite little blue hedgehog. Indeed, the first Sonic game, Sonic the HedgeHog, was released on June 23, 1991. This anniversary will therefore mark the 30th anniversary of Sega’s flagship license. And to celebrate this, the publisher organized a small event last Thursday. During this live, several announcements were made, for the greatest pleasure of the players: compilation, remaster, and especially new game! It was announced for 2022, but without more information. We don’t know what kind of game it is and what to expect… Finally it was without counting the most nosy players who knew how to find information, which, although unofficial, have the merit of being credible.
SEGA’S BREATH OF THE WILD?
Rummaging through the metadata of the game’s trailer, curious kids stumbled upon the title Sonic Rangers . A title that could well be that of the game, and that has already talked about it on the Internet.. Indeed, a 4chan post last January already gave information on a game of the same name. Its author, who chose to remain anonymous, could have tested one of the first versions of the game. According to him, the game draws its inspiration from the now famous The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. According to him, we should therefore expect an open world game, mixing phases of platforms and puzzles, in which it will be necessary to overcome different bosses to obtain orbs and thus open new portals. If nothing is confirmed, the coincidence is far too good not to give it a minimum of credit.
