Sega has announced two new Sonic games - one that's a retro remake of sorts and one that's completely new.The new game is dubbed Project Sonic and is due next autumn. It's in development for NX, PC, PS4 and Xbox One. A cinematic trailer announced it and heavily suggested there will be co-op. Sonic is joined by another Sonic while he runs towards a giant Robotnik, presumably, and the video's tagline reads: "When things look their darkest, even heroes need a helping hand."The adjoining press release doesn't add anything further - only that the game is being made by Sonic Team, which, well, what on earth else would it make?

The retro remake, meanwhile, is called Sonic Mania, and it re-imagines bits from Sonic 1, 2 and 3, and Sonic CD. There are new zones and acts plus a new drop-dash ability.Sonic Mania is being released spring 2017 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

An awful lot of space for a very small amount of effort.

Sonic recently celebrated a 25th anniversary, which makes me feel old. He's starred in more than 30 games over the years, including an I-can't-believe-it-happened-actually role-playing game by BioWare for DS called Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, which our review said was "pretty good". There's even a Sonic movie in the works, due 2018.
