Sonic the Hedgehog is starring in a brand new style of video games this year, which will tie into a computer-generated TV series on Cartoon Network.
This new game's got problems, but also introduces Sonic's most innovative stuff to date for this generation.
Wonder what the status of Super Smash Bros? How about Super Mario 3D World?
A new Mario & Sonic Olympics game is on the way, this one set during the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
The first of three Nintendo exclusive Sonic games gets its first trailer and it showcases an entirely new style.
It should be the year of Nintendo Direct rather than the year of Luigi.
