Back in May, our reporter Andrea Gil published here a series of credible pieces of information pertaining to Sonic’s role in the then just announced Nintendo-Sega partnership. Today, a key piece of that report has come to fruition.
In a Nintendo Direct held online this morning, the company confirmed Sonic would return to the next Super Smash Brothers title on Wii U and 3DS. A trailer below shows off Sonic, his trademark spin dash, and his assumed stage for the game: Windy Hill from Sonic Lost World.
Not clear at this point is whether this counts as the third game under Sega’s Sonic exclusivity deal for Nintendo.
Screenshots of Sonic in Smash will follow shortly. Be sure to follow our coverage of the blue blur’s return to Nintendo’s fighting flagship as we follow it to launch next year.
