Sonic speeds onto 360

Hedgehog protects human love interest (!?) from Eggman

As Sonic the Hedgehog speeds towards its release, we managed to rattle some new screens off him as he zoomed past.

These shots show how the blue 'hog has been humanised (read: given longer legs), but in our opinion it looks a little strange as he carries a lady to safety. Hopefully some sort of interspecies hedgehog / human love story isn't on the cards...

We will review the game shortly, but until then check out our preview.

Sonic the Hedgehog hits 360 on November 24, with a PS3 version to follow when the console finally hits Europe next year.
