It's going to be 2D, this is a step in the right direction. This is great news as I am currently trying to slog my way through Sonic 06 to prove that I'm manly and to laugh at the awful cutscenes. (Protip: Sonic 06 is the worst game ever, distrust any outlet who gave it a score above 0)
This however, may be good. It may even be great. The point is I'm actually excited for a Sonic game for the first time in a loooong time. Let's hope the cycle doesn't continue.
P.S. Am I the only one who thinks that the SEGAAAAA at the beginning was the best part?
