A cover from the new Nintendo Power Magazine Issue surfaced on the internet showing off a game called Sonic & the Black Night.
At first, everyone thought that it was a sham with some investigation from Photoshop pros investigating the image to try and find any inconsistencies. One of the writers from Ripten.com went a step further and decided to go and see if SEGA had registered the domain name.
It turns out that the domain was indeed registered and it looks like the game is actually legit. As you can see in the image, it shows an image of Sonic wearing a gauntlet and a large sword.
Sonic (known franchise) plus sword (Wii gimmick) should prove to work out pretty well for them. Let’s just hope that they put some good effort into it and it isn’t just SEGA having a go at the ever popular Wii market.
Well, until any official announcements are made by SEGA, we will have to wait to find out if the game is truly 100% legitimate.
