Sega has released a trailer for Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, and it's almost got us urging to blow off work to pillage the Sega offices (the crowbar's are in the staff cupboard).
We say almost, because the music sounds like it was ripped straight out of Baldur's Gate. That worries us in the same way it would hearing that Girls Aloud were to score the new Batman movie.
Aside from that minor - and slightly fanboyish - complaint, it's looking like the best Sonic game in ages. The environments look gorgeous, the sound effects are spot-on and most importantly there's a sense of controllable speed.
His bloody colourful friends are still around, though.
Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood will be coming to a Nintendo DS sometime this year.
