We already know that ‘Project Sonic 2017’ will be heading to Nintendo’s next home console, Switch. But if this supposed photo of a retailer’s March release schedule is any indication, there might be another Sonic game heading to the platform.
A poster on Reddit recently shared this photo from a local Gamestop store in Germany. If real (we’re tagging this as ‘Rumour’ for now), it highlights a lot of titles that Nintendo is preparing to have available for the Switch’s launch (which assumedly could be the 19th March 2017).
Two Sonic listings are mentioned; one is the already-known ‘Project Sonic 2017’ title, while another is simply listed as ‘NSW Sonic’. It’s unknown whether the 19th March date listed there is a placeholder or whether it will be ready for launch day.
It’s purely speculation at this point as to what this mystery Sonic title could be, but the safe money would go on a Switch version of upcoming retro-loving platformer Sonic Mania. With Nintendo about to reveal everything about its new console in a live event this Friday, we likely won’t have very long to find what this really is.
