SEGA has announced a new Sonic the Hedgehog game called Sonic Superstars, which aims to redefine the classic high-speed 2D platforming experience. The game will take place on the North Star Islands, a mystical location with unique environments and an unfolding mystery. Players will control Sonic and his friends as they face off against massive creatures, embark on thrilling adventures, and thwart the evil plans of Dr. Eggman.
