Following our report on Tuesday about Sonic Dash being listed in an Hardlight job listing, SEGA has confirmed to Kotaku that the game is indeed on the way.
“At this time, Sega is able to confirm that we are working on a new mobile game titled Sonic Dash. We have not announced any specific details on the product but we will be releasing additional information on this exciting, new game in the near future.”
That’s all well and good, but what about game details, Shadzter? Hit the jump and you shall receive.
Pocket Gamer France editor Sylvain has given us a heads up on some exclusive information about the game that they have received. As fans predicted, Sonic Dash will be an endless run and jump type of game, which means Sonic will automatically run by himself. The goal of the game is to collect rings and avoid enemies and obstacles, while your score gets ever higher. Pocket Gamer France also reports that the scenery will change as you progress and the game will also record how many meters Sonic has travelled. Game Center is also said to be supported, though no specific features are mentioned.
Thanks to Sylvain of Pocket Gamer France for the heads up! We’ll bring you more information on Sonic Dash when we get it. If you have any information to share, please e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org
