Shortly after Sega’s announcement about cutting size to focus on smartphone gaming, they teased their new game Sonic Runners.
Sonic Runners is a 2D running platformer, in which Sonic is constantly running and you must tap the screen to make him jump. As far as we know, the game will be similar to Sonic’s classic adventures, as the trailer largely focused on video from the old Genesis game. We do know that there will be similar mechanics such as ring collecting, various loop-de-loops, fighting Doctor Robotnik, and of course, sonic speeds. It seems there are some unlockable characters as well.
The game comes out Spring 2015, no other time has been mentioned.
