After a brief hiatus from PlayStation formats following an arguably ill-fated exclusivity window on Nintendo platforms, Sonic the Hedgehog looks set to sprint onto a PlayStation 4 near you in 2015. A sign supposedly on display at last week’s Nuremberg Toy Fair outlines a roadmap for SEGA’s speediest series, and suggests that an unannounced title is in the works for Sony’s next generation machine.
Interestingly, the placard also hints that the brand will receive its first ever CG animated film soon, which is reportedly being produced by Sony Pictures. Late last year, Kotaku spotted that the division had registered several web domains hinting at some kind of cinematic adaptation of the blue blur. Assuming that it’s real, it stands to reason that Sony Pictures Animation – the team behind Open Season and The Smurfs – would be the ones working on it.
