The 3D Sonic games don't have the best reputation these days given that the majority of them either released unfinished, unpolished, or just downright bland, though there are a couple of exceptions. Sonic: Generations and Colors are two genuinely fun games that have managed to take the 3D premise and concoct some compelling gameplay to go along with it, rather than simply stick to the 2D formula and wonder why it just isn't working.

With that in mind, I'm happy to announce that the team behind both of those games has been assembled once more to create a brand new 3D Sonic game - Project Sonic 2017 (a working title, I'd imagine). While there isn't any gameplay footage just yet, here's the announcement trailer showcasing not just Sonic, but two Sonics:


Little information is known about Project Sonic 2017 so far, but what I can tell you is that it will be releasing in the holiday season of 2017, so most likely around Christmas. Its going to be available for the PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo's upcoming NX console.

On a slight side-note, if you've missed the announcement of the new 2D Sonic game, Sonic Mania, you can check it out by heading over here.
