We expected Sonic to be in Project Needlemouse, but as a series trend breaker Sonic is running solo in this game.
Ever since Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sega partnered Sonic with a fuzzy friend. Tails, Big the Cat, Amy, Knuckles, Shadow, and Sonic’s new friend Mr. Needlemouse are out. Project Needlemouse is all about Sonic.
Sega also concept art showing a robotic crab enemy.
Brings back memories, doesn’t it?
