Is A New Next-Gen "Sonic" Game Coming Next Year?

For fans that grew up with Sonic the Hedgehog, each passing year seems to be more and more difficult to bear as Sega continually tries (and usually doesn't do a very good job with) reinventing their speedy blue hedgehog in the vein of whatever the platformer du jour is. Now on the heels of Sonic Lost World it appears that a new game may be hitting next-gen consoles as well as the Wii U next year.

The alleged announcement comes in the form of a photo taken at the Nuremburg International Toy Fair, where a sign seemingly announced Sega's upcoming plans for the franchise – among them the current releases of both Sonic Lost World and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games as well as a new Cartoon Netwok show debuting this Fall – among a litany of Sonic-related mechandise. The photo was among several published at the German Sonic-related site Spindash.

Apart from revealing a "new 2015 title TBA" with the PS4, Xbox and Wii U logos underneath, no other information was given, and Sega has yet to make any official statement. The last time Sonic had a good outing was Sonic Generations, released for Sonic's 20th birthday (not counting the steallar Sonic & Sega All Star Racing Transformed). Sonic Lost World did a less adequate job trying to imitate Mario Galaxy. Could a next-gen game restore the hedgehog to greatness?

Unlikely, probably, but time will tell.
