Sega has been quite the busy bee as of late, giving us plenty of new information regarding their upcoming Nintendo exclusive Sonic: Lost World. But of course, being the needy children that we are, Sega fans are all clamoring for more news regarding the other big Sonic exclusives that remain shrouded in mystery.
The latest morsel comes from a German press release for Lost World. Plenty of details for Sonic’s latest outing are discussed, including off-TV play and a Miiverse feature for the Wii U game, and exclusive special stages that use the Motion Sensor on the 3DS. Most intriguing is the sentence “Alle drei Spiele erscheinen noch in diesem Jahr,” which translates to “All three games appear in this year.” Could this mean that the third Sonic exclusive, which has yet to be named, will also be coming to us in 2013?
This news should be taken with a huge grain of salt, as the word “erscheinen” could mean “release” or “appear” in certain contexts, and in this press release it’s just too close to call. Whatever the case, it looks like we’ll at least learn something of this mysterious game in the coming months.
Hit the jump to see the English language version of the press release in its entirety.
