In news that will either delight or terrify you, it would seem there’s a brand new Sonic game in the works.

Some interesting new details have emerged about the upcoming Team Sonic Racing from Sumo Digital. The game is currently slated for an ambiguous “winter 2018” – which is a tad worrying – but let’s remain optimistic that the blue hedgehog and his fellow anthropomorphs can make it to this year’s Christmas rush.

Kuu! The best and worst Sonic games

There are few things that Sonic the Hedgehog fans feel more passionately about than judging the quality of the troubled mascot’s adventures. None of us can agree on the best and worst Sonic games; I for one think that Sonic 3 and Knuckles is a thing of beauty.
