Sonic goes medieval on your arse: New Black Knight images

Sonic and the Black Knight is heading to the Wii and puts a sword into the hedgehog’s hand for — I believe — the very first time. Yes, rather than using the age-honored skill of jumping, Sonic now has a blade with which to do battle, and here are some shots.

As far as Wii games go, this is actually looking rather pretty. Of course, Sega is very good at making games look visually impressive. It’s the “gameplay” part where the titles often come unstuck, and Black Knight will need to do a lot in order to make up for Sonic and the Secret Rings

“Seven rings in hand,” etcetera.
