SEGA has offered no comment on speculation that a Sonic Riders sequel is heading to Wii and PS2.

The news erupted from PLAY magazine, which outed the Sony version as Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity.

According to the mag, the blue hedgehog and friends are back to try and get their hands on a silly old artefact to save the day - racing across levels like Botanical Kingdom and Crimson Crater.

Numerous bits and pieces are said to have been tidied up, too, like the trick system - while the annoying turbulence mechanic has been left on the cutting room floor.

Sonic Riders launched on last generation consoles in 2006, receiving middling reviews. Occasionally it was fluid and exciting, rekindling memories of the original games, but too often it was overly complicated and frustrating.
