Sega has announced that Sonic the Hedgehog will be going it alone for his Wii debut in 2007 in an adventure game using the working title Sonic Wild Fire.
Sonic hasn't appeared in a game purely by himself since he first appeared on Mega Drive back in 1991, but that isn't the only thing different about the new Wii adventure, as Sonic Wild Fire will make full use of the motion sensitive controller.
Holding the wand horizontally with two hands, gamers must tilt it left or right
If there's one thing we all left E3 wondering, it was: Where the hell are all the Wii screenshots? Very few publishers tossed out their own, official images with their Wii games, but Sonic Wild Fire has now been unleashed. Seeing the game in motion is a much more impressive experience, and controlling the hedgehog with the Wii-mote is even more
You read it right folks. A T-Rex steals the show as he tries to chomp on everyone's favorite blue hedgehog, in this new gameplay video for Sonic and the Secret Rings. Check out Sonic at his break-neck best, speeding, bouncing and just plain running through some insane environments. He even does some log riding down a
It doesn't really matter how long you've been gaming - you know who Sonic the Hedgehog is. Ever since his first appearance on the Sega Genesis in 1991, the hyperactive hedgehog has consistently been one of the most popular characters in video game history. To honor his longevity, SEGA's trumpeting its new, next-gen Sonic the Hedgehog game, due later this year, as well as an enhanced remake of the original Genesis game, only for Game Boy Advance. The new version will incorporate Sonic's spin
We'll be the first to stand up and shout down all the rabid Sonic fanboys who say the franchise hasn't slid into desperate times. The past few games (and associated spin-offs) have been pretty damn sad, but Sega's first Wii attempt might be worth a look - so please, have a peek at our new shots of the Arabian-themed

Sonic the Hedgehog's debut on Nintendo's Wii will now be called Sonic and Secret Rings rather than Wild Fire, which was the name that was used at this year's E3.
Sonic and the Secret Rings will be Sonic's first solo outing since the original Sonic the Hedgehog that was released for Mega Drive 15 years ago. It has the blue blur trying to piece together a Arabian Knights storybook by recreating the lost
This latest round of Sonic and the Secret Rings shots is one of the few times you'll catch the game standing still: Wii has provided a perfectly bright and speedy return to form for Sega's tireless mascot.
Some of the screens also offer an indication of how you'll be wrangling the Wii-mote, chauffeur-style, to steer Sonic through the levels - although in the case of most of the screens it seems to be holding it level and just drinking in the Arabian Nights-inspired
It wouldn't normally be a fair fight: dinosaur versus hedgehog; scales, teeth, horns and armor-plated hides versus a few spines and the ability to roll into a ball. But this is Sega, and in the super-speedy Wii game Sonic and the Secret Rings, it is the primitive beasts that are about to be given a lesson from the old school.

Because as you can see in all of these primary colored shots, the blue fella has been freed from the tyranny of playing

This fresh batch of images from Wii-bound Sonic adventure, Sonic and the Secret Rings, gives us more views of the spiky one's towering dinosaur enemies, and hints at the sort of high-speed platforming we'll be racing through when the game's released next spring.
With a spiny T-Rex-like beast lunging over Sonic's path and a stampede of newly spotted Triceratops-ish dinos hurtling after him, we're guessing that Secret Rings will see us outrunning, dodging and hiding

A spiky bundle of new shots from Sega's Wii work in progress, Sonic and the Secret Rings, have hot footed it our way and show the intrepid hedgehog making a dash for some precariously placed red rings - could these be the eponymous treasures of the game's title? We think so.
Other images give us another look at the pointy-toothed Jurassic hazards that inhabit a jungle level of Sonic's adventure - it looks like the iconic ring collector uses a high-velocity burst to
