Seems that SEGA’s 25th Anniversary Party for Sonic the Hedgehog has been quite fruitful for their little blue blur.

Sonic Mania

The first of the titles from the event was a Genesis-style 2D Platformer titled Sonic Mania currently being developed by Christian Whitehead, Headcannon, and PadogaWest Games. A demo from the event contained two levels, a re-envisioned version of the original Sonic the Hedgehog primary level Green Hill Zone and a whole new Studiopolis Zone.

The second title shown, was a new 3D platformer for all of the current major gaming platforms, PC, Playstation 4, XBOX One, and for the upcoming Nintendo NX. While seemingly a spiritual successor to Sonic Generations, the head of Sonic Team and game designer Takashi Iizuka was careful to iterate that the game was not a sequel to Generations.

Sonic the Hedgehog’s Lego Dimensions appearance

SEGA also debuted the first gameplay footage of Sonic in Lego Dimensions.


Damon Baker, who works licensing at Nintendo of America, first announced on the Nintendo World Report’s Child’s Play podcast that there would be “something happening on Monday”. And, this appears to be the big news. Minecraft is officially coming to Nintendo’s Wii U console.

Mojang let the cat out of the bag this Monday morning with a silly video. The game will launch on the Nintendo eShop on December 17th and will cost $29.99. Also, below we have a gallery of screenshots for you to enjoy.
