SEGA lawyers confirm Sonic Unleashed

Leaked assets unauthorised but real.

SEGA America lawyers have accidentally confirmed the existence of Sonic Unleashed.

The legal team wrote to US blog Kotaku ordering it to remove the leaked screenshots and trailer that appeared last week.

But Kotaku argued the assets are newsworthy and claimed no violation of SEGA's rights had occurred.

So, wonderfully, Kotaku published the legal letter confirming the authenticity of the images and trailer.

"It has come to our attention that your website, Kotaku.com, has unauthorized postings of Sega's copyrighted work, the debut trailer and screenshots for Sonic Unleashed ('Work')," reads the letter.

The Sonic Unleashed trailer and screenshots in question can be found elsewhere on Eurogamer.
