Even though Sonic reaches the ripe old age of 15 this year, these latest shots from his next-gen game, Sonic the Hedgehog, show no signs that he's going to be slowing down any time soon.
The game - which is being developed by Sega's Sonic Team - is designed to capture the blistering speed of the hedgehog's 2D roots and combine it with gorgeous visuals, courtesy of Xbox 360 and PS3 power.
Sonic is called back into action as the pesky Dr Robotnik kidnaps a princess and steals a chaos emerald. Only Sonic's blistering pace, platforming skills and powerful attacks can save the day.
