So, some footage was revealed earlier that leaked the first ever full gameplay of Sonic the Hedgehog 4. I don't know about anybody else, but it looked pretty damn swanky to me. However, there was one thing that truly set my heart at ease about the game, more than any video. Xbox Live Marketplace has revealed something very important. It's revealed the developer, and it's not Sonic Team!
Dimps, in case you did not know, has made several Sonic games in the past under the name of Sonic Team. However, unlike Sonic Team, Dimps is a terrific developer. It created the last truly brilliant Sonic game, Sonic Advance, and also developed the Rush titles, along with the Wii version of Sonic Unleashed that is believed by many to be a far superior offering. Dimps also co-developed the console version of Street Fighter IV.
I was holding out hope that Dimps would be named as the developer, as this studio truly knows its stuff and understands Sonic the Hedgehog. For any Sonic fan, this is absolutely fantastic news and I'm positively thrilled to hear it. Sonic 4 just got a whole let better for me.
