Rumor: Sonic 4 getting a mine cart level?


Okay guys, brace yourselves because I've got some news that may leave you feeling queasy. According to the Internet detectives at NeoGAF, Sonic the Hedgehog 4 will feature a Donkey Kong Country style mine cart level. Yes, that's right ... one Act might not be traditional Sonic platforming. OMFGBBQ!!!!!

The discovery of a potential mine cart level which would involve tilting the screen (like Loco Roco) has left the Internet in quite a tizzy. with some fans adding this to their list of evidence that the game will suck. In any case, if this mine cart level is real, the gameplay will involve speeding Sonic or slowing him down, while making sure the angle isn't too steep. 

Sega's constant need to screw up a simple formula is getting annoying, but I'll give this a chance. Mine cart levels are a classic part of the 16-bit era, after all. I spent much of my childhood in a virtual mine. You never know, it might not be terrible. That's if this is even genuine. 

Guess we'll have to wait and find out!
