Rumor has it that SEGA will be announcing a new Sonic the Hedgehog title in February, with a release planned for mid to late 2013. Sonic Stadium suggests that a teaser could be sent out during "Hedgehog Day" on February 2, a day normally used to tease fans about the Blue Blur's future. A full reveal could then take place later in the month.

Sonic Stadium posted a number of different details about the unconfirmed project. For a summary of the report, read on below.

- Name not final
- Wii U, PS3, 360, 3DS, Vita, PC, "next-gen" console versions
- PC/Vita versions will be identical aside from visual differences
- 3DS game will be like Sonic Rush
- Console version will feature switches between full 3D movement and 2D side-scrolling sections
- Multiple routes
- Each route in a stage will lead to one of two or three exits at the end that will each take you to a different stage
- You will always end up at the same final stage
- Final stage count hasn't been decided, but devs will add at least 20 different ones, not including boss battles
- Begin the game with Sonic and unlock other characters by completing stages
- Doesn't mean 20+ characters will be playable
- Each character has his/her own skills to help them progress in stages easier where others will have more difficulty or simply cannot ala Sonic 3 & Knuckles and the Sonic Advance series
- Ex: Sonic and Shadow can't make it up a wall, but Tails can easily fly up there or Knuckles can climb, allowing them access to an exit Sonic and Shadow can’t reach
- Stages can be replayed with any character of your choice
- 3DS version “similar in idea, but smaller in scope”
- Developers are trying to fit all of the characters into the game, but it will feature far fewer stages
- There will still be many paths through stages, but it looks like every stage will only ever branch off into 2 stages
- SEGA has its best developers working on the games
- Game has been in the works since before Sonic Generations
- Out this fall/autumn or winter at the latest

Do you mean PS3 and Vita versions will be the same, since thats usually the case?

No, the PC and Vita versions, in that the game probably won't be on either platform.

Lol, but Sonic Generations was on the PC. But you're right, releasing a game on the Vita would be terrible, it doesn't need any games to survive. Oh and reading the article, it says that the consoles, pc, and vita versions will all be the same, not just the PC and the Vita

I was just joking. Sega have been better than most companies when it comes to supporting the PC and and Vita. Not that I'm taking anything spread by a Sonic fan site at face value.
