New Sonic tidbits galore!

If you’ve been hanging around the Sonic Rivals board on the SSMB, you may have noticed this by now, but if you haven’t, well… pictures speak better than words, right?

Recently revealed in GameSpot’s screenshot section for the new PSP Sonic title Sonic Rivals are screenshots of the elusive mystery 5th character pictured on the character select screen in existing screenshots of the game. Well, that “mystery” character isn’t such a mystery anymore:

It’s none other than our good pal, Metal Sonic! Looks like he’s drawing from his Sonic CD roots, which can be nothing but a good thing, right? 😉

On a slightly related (though not really) subject, the soon-scheduled-for-release PC port of the Sonic racing game Sonic Riders has recently had a playable demo released! More info in this topic at Sonic CulT’s forums. Download links, as well as info about the port are inside the topic. Enjoy!

Here at Sonic News, we’re dedicated to bringing you the latest scoops in the Sonic community. Stay tuned for further developments on this story, as well as others!
