Good golly aren't I'm in a thread posting mood today? Anyway IGN DS has just said this. "Mark this one up as something totally unexpected - BioWare and SEGA have announced they're collaborating on an exclusive role-playing game for Nintendo DS starring Sonic the Hedgehog. Currently without a name, this Sonic RPG is set for release in 2008. Simon Jeffery, president and COO of SEGA America said: "BioWare is one of the hottest names in RPG development in the world. Everyone at SEGA has huge confidence that Sonic is in the safest of hands, and that BioWare can create the ultimate handheld RPG experience for gamers of all ages." Greg Zeschuk, president of BioWare said: "We're thrilled to be working with SEGA on Sonic, one of the industry's most enduring and compelling icons." Meanwhile, Ray Muzky, CEO of BioWare added: "As huge fans of Sonic ourselves, we're committed to delivering a truly amazing story-driven experience within the Sonic universe, focusing on capturing the character's broad appeal and placing him in a completely original adventure."" Anyone remember Sega saying they were giving Sonic a little bit of a rest? Oh well BioWare are bloody great but I would rather they made an original RPG for the DS. There was an announcement that they were working on a DS RPG and I guess this is it. In case you don't already know BioWare made such classics as the Baldurs Gates series, the Neverwinter Knights Series, MDK2, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire. They are also working on the "god damn that looks good" 360 title Mass Effect.
