Project Needlemouse soundtrack teased, sounds like Sonic!

Project Needlemouse will officially get its real name on Thursday, and we’re all pretty certain it’ll be called Sonic the Hedgehog 4. If we needed any more proof, Sega has teased a small slice of the new game’s soundtrack. It’s short, but it sounds magnificent. It’s Sonic, the way it’s supposed to sound. Just play that video up above for the proof!

Two new pieces of artwork have also been revealed, a revolving sunflower and a palm tree. Like the Badniks, these environmental pieces are old school Sonic mainstays. Sega has all but confirmed that the palm trees will, yet again, hide boxes with Invincibility power-ups in them. 

I’ll admit it — Sega has me by the balls on this one. They have to realize that they can’t stuff this one up, and the promotion so far has been so self-aware that I’m sure they know what they’re doing. I hope they know what they’re doing.

That’s it for now. Can’t wait until Thursday!
