Sonic Jump and Sonic Dash fans celebrate, because developer Hardlight Studio has started teasing what's likely to be another game. It's just a simple image, unfortunately, but features what looks to be Green Hill Zone with a rather round Sonic peering at us over the grass. Bolded text at the top of the screen reads "SOON" in that internet meme fashion. Whatever could this be?
Odds are, since Hardlight claims they're solely a mobile and handheld developer, we're talking about a relatively small Sonic game here. Something mobile most likely, but there's always a chance that's handheld too. As such, I was unsure whether to write this story about it until we knew a bit more about its scale, but ultimately decided that folk are always excited about a Sonic game, big or small.
The other oddity about the image is that it's not our standard Sonic peering over the hill, it's a much rounder, stylized version of Sonic. I know I've seen that Sonic somewhere before, but where? Perhaps this means we'll be seeing a Sonic game unlike previous ones? I'd love to see something new from Sonic that doesn't make me want to throttle someone.
Expect more Sonic news "SOON"er or later.
