Report: Separate Nintendo-Specific Sonic in the Works

Will Allegedly be Revealed in Next Nintendo Power

The reveal of Sonic Generations just for XBOX 360 and Sony’s Playstation 3 felt like a cheap shot toward many Sonic fans who only own a Wii and, arguably, have fostered Sonic the most in recent years.

But the Portuguese arm of Eurogamer is reporting something that should re-invigorate those Nintendo leaning fans.  The site reports that the next issue of Nintendo Power, in direct coincidence with June’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, will announce a new, Nintendo-specific Sonic.

As reported earlier, the current issue of NP features a Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games preview, along with a vague 20th anniversary teaser for the next edition.

While Eurogamer’s article affords no hints on what’s to come, speculation ranges from a version of Generations for either Wii or Nintendo’s next system, to the long rumored standalone 3DS title, to a completely original endeavor.

No matter what, with this news, all signs point to June being a big month for big blue.  Thanks to Josh Trow for tipping us to the information.  If you have news to share, be sure to share it with us by clicking Send News Tips at the top of every page.
