BioWare doing Sonic RPG

Due out on DS in 2008.

SEGA and BioWare have announced a partnership to create an RPG based on Sonic the Hedgehog for Nintendo DS. It's due out in 2008.

Virtually nothing else has been said about it, leaving us to chew on the prospect while regurgitating a bit of canned excitement - "BioWare is one of the hottest names in RPG development in the world," being a good place to start, thanks to SEGA of America president and COO Simon Jeffery. "Everyone at SEGA has huge confidence that Sonic is in the safest of hands, and that BioWare can create the ultimate handheld RPG experience for gamers of all ages."

For its part, BioWare says it's "thrilled" to be tackling "one of the industry's most enduring and compelling icons". CEO Ray Muzyka added: "As huge fans of Sonic ourselves, we're committed to delivering a truly amazing story-driven experience within the Sonic universe, focusing on capturing the character's broad appeal and placing him in a completely original adventure."

And who knows - having reinvigorated Star Wars with Knights of the Old Republic, you wouldn't put it past them. Look out for more on the as-yet untitled Sonic the Hedgehog handheld RPG in the coming weeks and months.
