What’s this? TGL reports, via the Dutch site NextGamer, that Sega registered http://www.sonicthehedgehog4.com. Sega is currently working on something called “Project Needlemouse” in which Sonic, a rodent who is needle-y, is the main character. Is this Sega not-so-sneakily telling us that the new game will be called Sonic The Hedgehog 4, and hearken back to the days of wondrous side scrollers and the one player game that was kinda-sorta two player since you could control Tails if you wanted to?
We’ll see if the two are related, in the future.
