New Shadow the Hedgehog screens

Me, and my sha-a-dow

Shadow the Hedgehog made his debut appearance in Sonic Adventure 2, has cropped up again in the Sonic universe since and now because he's apparently "emerged as one of the most popular characters in the Sonic The Hedgehog universe" has been given his very own game - which we're reliably informed by Sega "boldly redefines the intense, high-speed action that fans have come to love in the Sonic The Hedgehog series."

The game's plot revolves around the Chaos Emeralds (which hold the secrets to Shadow's true identity) that lie at the heart of a bit of upheaval on Shadow's home world which is currently under siege. Armed with heavy-duty weapons and powers to manipulate time and space, Shadow must choose to either walk the path of good or evil as events unfold and presumably either save or destroy the planet.

Shadow the Hedgehog releases on PS2, Xbox and GameCube at the end of the year.
