Sega's Sonic Unleashed for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii - Image 1After Sega’s recent announcement regarding the upcoming Sonic Unleashed (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii), the general question on everyone’s mind was: “What makes this game different from the previously released Sonic titles?”

The question was answered by none other than the game’s lead designer at Sonic Team, Yoshihisa Hashimoto. During a recent interview article posted on the Official Nintendo Magazine, he stated that Sonic Unleashed “has no relation” with the last game.

Considering the relative unpopularity of the last two titles on the Xbox 360 and PS3, the new title will be built from scratch and “will purely be Sonic’s new product. Of course, players will still be able to enjoy Sonic’s symbolic actions such as Spin attack and Homing Attack”.

In addition, Hashimoto had a few things to say regarding the new project:

As a development team, we originally started off this project planning to create Sonic Adventure 3. In our minds, this game will have more in common with the older Sonic Adventure series. It has no relation to Sonic the Hedgehog [on PS3/Xbox 360] or Sonic and the Secret Rings.

The new game will also feature unique features such a day and night system which will have a pointed impact on gameplay. For one thing, Sonic actually turns into a werehog with distinctively different movements in this form. For more details about Sonic Unleashed, keep coming back to this spot for more updates.
