We had the teaser the other day and now we have a full announcement trailer. Curiously this came out only on the Sony PlayStation site, not initially from SEGA which makes you wonder if someone at Sony boobed and went too early. But who cares, a full HD remake of the game is now confirmed!
The press release is below:
