Unseen64 has reported on Sonic The Hedgehog Extreme, a previously lost Sonic-themed hoverboard game prototype its developers believe sparked the creation of Sonic Riders.
SEGA exec Alan Pritchard has revealed more about the company's plans to delist less-than-stellar Sonic games - suggesting the publisher may take a leaf out of an old rival's book.
SEGA has signed a three-year deal with Alton Towers, the UK's most popular theme park.
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.
Even SEGA would probably agree that Sonic Riders isn't the most exciting PC release of the year (seeing as they also publish Football Manager and Medieval 2), but with a beige-box version due out this Christmas we now have a demo to help make our minds up.
Not content with its persistent whoring of the Sonic license on consoles, handhelds and mobiles, SEGA of America has announced the development of Sonic Riders, the hoverboard racer, on PC.
SEGA will release a sequel to its racing game Sonic Riders on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 according to producer Takashi Yuda.
