    The third (or second depending on whether you count Mario & Sonic Winter Olympics 2014) Nintendo-exclusive Sonic game has been announced. Sonic Boom will be released for Wii U and 3DS (not Xbox One and PS4 as previously thought it seems) and will also spawn a computer-animated TV series that will air on Cartoon Network in 52 11-minute slots.

    Sega have tailored the game for Western audiences and as such Sonic Team have handed the reins to a main line Sonic game to a Western developer for the first time since Sonic 3D on the Mega Drive. The Wii U version of the game being handled by Big Red Button Entertainment, whose team members worked on Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter, while Sanzaru Games are working on the 3DS version. The game uses the CryEngine 3 and is due in 2015.

    The team have a good pedigree so I'm looking forward to it. 3D platformers need a big comeback, hopefully this will be successful.
