Screens reveal new Sonic characters

Amy Rose and Blaze the cat (thanks OXM Sonic nerds!) spotted in new screens, bumping Sonic next-gen's character total to five.

Previous Sonic instalments, Sonic Heroes and Sonic Adventure 2, were criticised for focusing too heavily on multiple characters, the loudest fan cries asking for more Sonic and less shooting/hammering/frog chasing.

Unfortunately though, out of these 12 screenshots we count two with the blue spiky one in them.

Sonic the Hedgehog is out on 360 this Christmas, with a PS3 version arriving alongside the console next year.
