Sonic The Hedgehog for next-gen platforms is expected to ship on multiple platforms in conjunction with the character's 15th anniversary in 2006. The game will be developed under the direction of Yuji Naka, award-winning developer known for creating the hugely successful SEGA franchise.

SEGA hopes the reinvention of this popular franchise will thrill both the long-time Sonic fans as well as a new generation of gamers with the exciting speed and action only possible on next-generation platforms.
