Sonic Jump

E3 is here, and all of the major gaming companies are beginning to announce the new titles they’ll be releasing in the next year.

SEGA today announced ‘Sonic Jump Fever,’ a new installment of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.

This game is a bit more social than others before it, as it centers around beating your friends’ scores. You can chose your character and compete in vertical jumping challenges, much like Doodle Jump in the Sonic universe. There are a bunch of power-ups and boosters to collect as well as unique character abilities.

The actual release date is not known, but stay tuned for more as the beginning of summer comes closer. Hit the break for the game’s promotional video.
