    Okay, starting now there's only 365 days to rule out Project Needlemouse being revealed! The excitement rises!

    It could be today. It could be tomorrow. Who knows?

    I swear if Yuji Cosby isn't in Needlemouse I'll start a riot in front of Sonic Team Japan's headquarters. Who's with me? :colbert:

    Welp, this.
    I think 143 pages is enough.

    Start a new thread when we get some new info.

    Until then, locked.

    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Here's a little bit of news concerning Sonic's return to 2d with Project Needlemouse. SEGA's Constantine Hantzopoulos confirmed to the 1up gang that Project Needlemouse is indeed a downloadable title. The problem is, he didn't say what platforms it would be hitting. He also happened to mention that this is a smaller title, but didn't really clarify what 'smaller' meant in those regards. Finally, Mr. Hantzopoulos does reference PSN/XBLA in regards to downloadable games in general, but doesn't make a connection to Project Needlemouse. Well, now our only hope is WiiWare, and things aren't looking too likely.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Well that solves that mystery. I figured it would be downloadable, and the exclusion of the Wii is most likely a definite possibility at this point.

    This part intrigues the hell out of me, does this mean PN will be a pure and simple title like the Genesis games, as to what MM9 is for Mega Man? I sure hope so, I would love to play a Sonic game that felt like a genuine "Sonic 4," but not THE Sonic 4.

    He probably means that they won't spend all of their budget in the CGI department rather than the development.

    Good I want to see a smaller game. If they can't make 20 hours of good content then I'd rather have 3 hours of good content and not 3 hours of good content and 17 hours of filler. NSMBWii may have been a short game, but I enjoyed it while I was playing it basically for the whole time.

    I'm still hoping that they don't take an exact direction of MM9 though. I don't want to see reused sprites and stuff. But then again Sonic game sprites changed slightly with each game anyway. Megaman had 6 games where he looked the same, so I suppose the nostalgia machine doesn't work as much here.

    Also this brings up another question. Will this be Sonic 4? I don't want it to be, because saying it's Sonic 4 really puts a lot of standards on it. If it's a title that plays like classic Sonic that's not Sonic 4 that's another thing. It will still be under close watch, but not as much.

    It just means low budget, which I figured. The teaser itself reeked of cheap DLC to begin with.

    Only reused materials were Mega Man, mets, and common items throughout the series son.

    By stuff I basically just meant 8-bit Megaman graphics in general. I don't want to see this game basically be a Sonic 1 hack.

    Dang, that sucks. I hate downloadable content. I want physical media. If I can't burn it to a disc and back it up myself, it should be available on disc in the first place.

    I would like Needlemouse to be like a MegaDrive Sonic game but I don't think that SEGA can pull it off.
    In any case, the downloadable titles for 2010 seem promising. I would like a PC version though. :O

    Seconded. If it won't be available on WiiWare, then I'm screwed. I'm having difficulty myself setting up Xbox Live, and I don't have a PS3.

    As long as it doesn't look like Sonic Advance, I'll be fine with it.

    Disc? I don't care. Downloadable? Again, don't care.

    In fact, I'm not going to care about this game at all until there's actually something to show for it.

    I think not putting this on wiiware would be a terrible mistake on sega's part.

    It's not like porting it would be a major obstacle (it's a 16 bit esque 2D platformer), and nintendo platforms seem to be where most sega gamers sort of migrated to. they'd be missing their biggest audience.

    Heh, so it really is just a cheap DLC in the end? How predictable.

    If it looks like Sonic Advance 1, it'd be fine by me. That was basically classic Sonic with a "new-character-designs" skin on it anyways. Advance 2 & 3 style, however, and I could see what you're getting at. Heck no to that.


    Although I would still highly prefer classic Sonic in all his glory for this entry. Just as long as this is real HD (Toki) or 2.5D (NSMBWii) and not pixelated-to-match-the-classic-standards (MM9), I'm fine. Unless they could pull it off really well.
