Project Needlemouse is starring Sonic and Sonic only

Way back in September the trailer to commence the hype of Sonic the Hedgehog’s upcoming return to 2D glory was deliriously revealed. Sega codenamed the effort Project Needlemouse and began eliminating Sonic’s potential co-stars day by day until now, when we are finally left with only the Blue Blur himself to kick off the next decade of Sonic games right.

Sega has also revealed a piece of concept art featuring a crab robot enemy. The Badnik known as Crabmeat has not been seen since the original Sonic the Hedgehog. His involvement in Project Needlemouse will likely send Sonic fans into an even rowdier frenzy than they were in already.
