Fancy yourself a piece of merchandise from one of the weirdest Sonic collaborations to date? The Sonic X Hello Kitty plush doll has been racing off the shelves in Tokyo being snapped up by Sonic and Hello Kitty fans alike, and like most awesome merchandise affiliated with our favourite hedgehog, western fans have to shell out big bucks to have goods imported. TSSZ News however are offering one lucky winner a chance to snag one of these plushes, with their Campaign KittyHog ’12 Contest!

ASSEMbler Games forum member ProtonX has discovered an unreleased game called Sonic Extreme via an Xbox development kit. The game sees Sonic try his hand at skateboarding, with gameplay much like the Tony Hawk skating games, tricks and all. A few videos of the title in action have been released, which show Sonic skating around a stage that looks a lot like Seaside Hill in Sonic Heroes. Many fans are already speculating as to whether this could have been an early concept demo of what would eventually become Sonic Riders, which like Sonic Heroes before it, was also released on Xbox. The third gameplay video gives us a look at the game’s split-screen multiplayer mode, which features Shadow as a playable character.
Take a look at the videos and share your thoughts on the game in the comments.
If any more information and media are released, we’ll be sure to pass it along.
