So, for the most part, I've been out of the loop on Sonic related news over the past few weeks. I did manage to catch the Facebook exclusive teaser that featured both the modern and classic Sonic designs running alongside each other. But now, as everyone else on the Internet is already well aware of, Sonic's 20th Anniversary game, Sonic Generations has been officially revealed by SEGA.
Check the trailer:
For the sake of my own sanity, I'm not going to look at the comments. I don't want to relapse to what happened with Sonic 4's announcement.

It'll be interesting to see how Generations develops along the way. The only thing I'm displeased with right now is the lack of a Wii version (I don't own a 360 or PS3), but hopefully Wii owners won't get left out in the cold in the end (no, the new Mario and Sonic doesn't count!). I can't really keep up with the news as frequently as I'd like at the moment, but I'll keep an eye on things.
In the mean time, I'd recommend keeping up with the news at more frequently updated sites, like the Sonic Stadium. Here's some screenshots to whet your appetites.
Also for a random bit of commentary, I'm really digging the design of the Generations logo. It actually looks to take a few cues from the old Sonic box art used in Japan for the Genesis/Megadrive games. It's thankfully less busy than those boxes, but it's a nice little callback to those beginnings.
