SEGA has trademarked something called Sonic Lost World.
The trademark, filed on May 15th by the blue blur’s publisher, comes following a chatter from one gamer who claims to have seen a presentation an upcoming Xbox 360 Sonic title featuring Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy.
“This past weekend I was able to watch a couple of demonstrations on Sonic Team’s upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog game, currently titled ‘Sonic Excursion.’ In all they had two levels to show off which all four of the playable characters the story will focus on were able to play through.
“The first level is called ‘Shattered Heights’ and is similar to the Sonic Generations incarnation of Speed Highway. Very New York themed. We were told the level was five minutes long, but they spent about fifteen minutes showing us parts of the stage’s design, focusing on the lighting and shadows and how lighting was one of the main focuses for this game’s design.”
It’s unknown whether Sonic Excursion has become Sonic Lost World, or indeed whether Sonic Excursion is a legitimate thing at all. It’s just a rumour.
One thing we do know for sure is, SEGA’s not giving up on its flagship franchise. Expect proper news of a new game soon.
