    Good news is it’s also for Playstation 3. I heard Vita mentioned too, but dunno if that means a game or just connectivity.

    That preview video was beyond awesome, BTW.

    Isn’t coming to the Vita as well?

    This is for Vita too? Seriously? If so, I may import.

    Going to import this game here after all, Sega seems to have zero interest bringing this series out of Japan anymore.T_T

      It’s all part of SEGA’s master plan! It will relegate all its best non-Sonic games to a Japan-only release, while making the much more profitable Western market play Sonic games while they wait in vain for an English-dubbed Phantasy Star Online 2! Sure, there would be the occasional hidden gem between Sonic releases, but of course SEGA doesn’t advertise these games outside of niche-game-oriented sites like Siliconera, so it is doomed to commercial failure!
      …Sorry, I had that rant pent up since the post-Dreamcast days. I just want something to play while I wait for Sonic Lost World.

    A launch release greatly increases the odds of it seeing an international release.
