Ecco the Dolphin Set to Return?

SEGA's Ecco the Dolphin could be making a long-awaited comeback if recent Twitter activity from the game's creator, Ed Annunziata is any kind of an indication.
According to Annunziata, he's working on “putting the band back together” for the new Ecco project, and has already got Spencer Nielsen back on board to provide the soundtrack. Nielsen's score was one of the most memorable aspects of Ecco the Dolphin on the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis, as well as all the weird, insane and surreal alien stuff.
Annunziata is also already mapping out the design for the new Ecco the Dolphin, with a whiteboard sketch providing a look at a dolphin jumping out of water. Not a particularly intricate design document then... Still, dolphins and water is a good start, right?
You can play the original Ecco the Dolphin on the SEGA Ultimate Mega Drive Collection disc. Dig it out. It's mental.
