Footage of cancelled Sonic skateboarding game shown

There really are no words for the depths SEGA were/are willing to take Sonic to for a bit of cash. The poor little guy has run his course of terrible platformers, minigame collections and more in the past decade, but it seems we may actually have been spared the worst of it.

Footage of a rather awful looking Sonic skateboarding game has leaked onto the internet. Fear not; this one was cancelled way back, as it was on track for the original Xbox. The clip shows about as much imagination as the game’s title, Sonic Extreme, as the mascot rides around a Green Hill Zone-themed skate park. Looks like it would have given the recent Tony Hawk games a run for their money, at least.

We’re all currently hoping that the upcoming Sonic Generations is a less terrible effort than recent offerings.
