Our excitement for Sonic Unleashed just keeps growing. Speaking to Official Nintendo Magazine (which is set for release on Friday) Sonic Team's Yoshihisa Hashimoto has revealed that Sonic Unleashed originally began development as Sonic Adventure 3.
"As a development team, we originally started off this project planning to create Sonic Adventure 3", Hashimoto told the magazine. "In our minds, this game will have more in common with the older Sonic Adventure series. It has no relation to Sonic the Hedgehog or Sonic and the Secret Rings". Sonic Unleashed is on track for release towards the end of the year.
