UPDATE: SSMB Staffer Carbo points out “Placeholder for whatever moment an actual Wii U Sonic title is announced. Scandinavian retailers do this regularly for titles they “expect”. When Sonic Generations 3DS was announced, all previous placeholder preorders for “Sonic 3DS” on another website became allocated to that”
Looking around the site there are listings for a few unannounced games including Epic Yarn 2 (thanks to Josh in the comments for that one). Oh well it was nice to be excited whilst it lasted… anyone wanna take bets on when something is announced?
ORIGINAL STORY: Norwegian retailer CDON.com has posted a listing for a new Sonic game on the Wii-U, simply entitled “Sonic (Nintendo Wii U).” The retailer also has a listing for a ‘Super Monkey Ball Cafe’ game on the same system. For those who don’t know, ‘Cafe’ was the code name for the Wii-U.
Now obviously the thinking is, ‘maybe this is their listing for Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed?’ Well this is what makes the listing a tad interesting, the site already has a listing for ASRT on the Wii-U.
As of yet, there has been no official word on a new Sonic game for any system outside of ASRT, so this might be be an error on behalf of the website. It would be crazy to assume that a Sonic game won’t ever be made for the Wii-U. However, is this listing a sign one is on the way? Or has the retailer got it very very wrong?
Stay tuned to TSS for more information as we get it.
