Sonic Unleashed Officially Announced – with Werewolf Sonic?

A week or two after screenshots of the forthcoming Sonic the Hedgehog game were leaked to the web, Sega finally quit issuing cease-and-desist orders and announced that they are indeed making a new Sonic game called Sonic Unleashed, due out for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii before Christmas 2008.

So how is this werewolf-related? Well, apparently the levels will have Day and Night modes. The Day modes will feature the high-speed action synonymous with Sonic games. The Night modes will feature…

Werewolf Sonic

Werewolf Sonic. Does it make sense? No. Is it awesome? Heck yes.

More concrete details are expected in May. In the meantime, check out this screenshot gallery at Eurogamer. No werewolf pictures, but it’s a great-looking game.
