From the announcement:

In Yoshi's Island Zone, Sonic must race across Yoshi's world in a brand new action-packed level. As you speed through this level, both Yoshi and Sonic players will notice some familiar items including pipes, coins, piranha plants and even Sonic's iconic loop de loops, all in the unique graphic style of Yoshi's world. Can Sonic find all the Yoshi's eggs to save all of the Yoshis? Well you'll need to explore the whole level to discover hidden areas to uncover these.

A week ago we learned that the original director for Deadpool, Tim Miller was abandoning ship, and now we've received confirmed reports that Miller is gearing up to direct the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.



The gameplan at this point is to make a hybrid CG-animated/live-action family film. Patrick Casey and Josh Miller, who were responsible for creating Golan the Insatiable, are penning the script.

The previous clip is a tribute to the commercial that aired for Sonic 2 back in 1993. It would seem that Sega hopes by playing on the nostalgia, they can get gamers to revisit one of the classics.

We've seen some pretty excellent fan made games make the rounds recently; and more recently, end up being shut down as result of Digital Millennium Copyright Act. It's a shame too, with games like Pokemon Uranium and the Metroid 2 remake, and No Mario's Sky, Nintendo needs to take a minute.

Well fortunately, Sega's outlook on fan made games couldn't be more different. After seeing Game Grumps played Green Hill Paradise Act 2, Sega took note and sent out their approval on twitter.
