Sonic signs with Nintendo

Release Date: 21/05/2013

In what may yet prove to be one of the signs of the apocalypse, SEGA has announced that the European release of the next three Sonic titles will be exclusive to Nintendo.

This isn't the first time the former rivals have collaborated, of course. The Mario and Sonic Olympic games are a well established tradition now, but even so - to see the speedy blue hedgehog officially under Mario's roof should still cause any child of the 1990s to do a double take. It's like Han Solo giving the Millenium Falcon to Captain Kirk.

The deal covers the next Olympic title - Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games - which will be a Wii U exclusive. Figure skating doubles is one of the new events added, and you'll be using both Wii remotes and the Wii game pad for different mini-games.

Nintendo will also be publishing Sonic: Lost World, the next entry in the main Sonic the Hedgehog series. This too will be exclusive to Wii U and 3DS. A solitary screenshot was released to mark the announcement, showing Sonic and Tails' iconic red biplane approaching what looks like an incomplete jigsaw planet. More details are promised at E3 next month.

What will the third game be? SEGA isn't saying just yet, leaving us to simply contemplate a terrifying new reality where cats love dogs, Mick Jagger is in The Beatles and Sonic lives at Nintendo.
