The reassuring news keeps on coming regarding Sonic the Hedgehog 4. First of all, we get a bit of gameplay footage that looks terrific, then we get word that Dimps is working on the game, and now it has been revealed that Sonic 3's senior level designer is also involved.
"So, is it just Dimps? Just Sonic Team? The answer is a bit of both," explains Sega. "Yes, Dimps is working on the game. But there’s actually more to it than just that: at the same time, we also have members of Sonic Team, including the original senior level designer from Sonic 3 & Knuckles on the SEGA Genesis working alongside them. It is most definitely a partnership, and the result of this teamwork is something many of us are excited for."
It really is looking like Sonic 4 will be the game that old school fans have been longing to see, and I count myself as one of those fans who waits with nervous excitement. Please please please don't mess this up, Sega!
