Sonic Unleashed (PS3, 360, Wii, PS2): New Trailers

Apparently, Sega Japan has delayed the release of the 360 and PS3 versions of Sonic Unleashed to spring of next year. The reason? To polish the quality of the game. The Wii version is still planned to come out this month in Japan. Now one can take this of two ways: 1) the Wii version is polished well enough since it was made by a different developer, or 2) the HD versions matter more than the Wii version, so who cares how polished the unimportant Wii version is? We'll find out which assumption is correct later on, I imagine. There's no word if the Japanese delay will affect the West, and by that, I mean whether or not the Western release dates will be affected and not whether or not the American economy will be worsened further by this important news.

PS3, 360 - "Holoska" Trailer

This trailer shows off yet another new level, the icy tundra of Holoska. In Soviet Holoska, overused jokes like this one are still funny!

In Soviet Holoska, direct link clicks YOU! Dammit! I did one anyway!

Wii, PS2 - "Adabat" Trailer

Am I becoming complacent? I honestly think that the graphics in this version are pleasing. They're not orgasmic like the HD versions, but that's to be expected. Of course, a game that would be created from the ground up for the Wii like Black Knight (the Sonic game, not the Martin Lawrence "comedy") and Secret Rings would look much better than one ported from the PS2.

Nonetheless, I'm certainly hyped for Sonic Unleashed for both versions, HD and SD. I've only been absolutely burned by one 3D Sonic, the 2006 travesty. I enjoyed Sonic Heroes, and I liked Shadow the Hedgehog's game, too. Will Sonic Unleashed get the tough-luck (critic-wise) hedgehog his groove back, or is this yet another chapter in the fabled Sonic Cycle?

I saw a poster for this in GameStop the other day. I didn't know what it was till I saw this post.
