Project Needlemouse’s Character Reveals Are Trivial

Project Needlemouse’s Character Reveals Are Trivial

The names on this image represent potential playable characters in Sega’s Project Needlemouse 2D Sonic the Hedgehog revival, and only your knowledge of Sonic trivia can help narrow down the list!

Sega is ready to reveal new information on Project Needlemouse, but the company isn’t giving away the information for free. Instead, every day for the next four days, Sega will be posting trivia questions at its various websites. If 100 fans answer the questions correctly, names will be removed from the image, culminating in the final reveal on Friday, with 250 correct replies required for the bonus point.

Considering Tails and Knuckles aren’t on the list, I’m betting that Sega is planning on pulling a fast one here, and by Friday there’s only going to be one name on the list.

At least I hope so.

    • Tails and Knuckles are likely to be a given for this game. Hence not displaying them.

      Please, God, make this the Sonic game we deserve after so long…

  • why the hell does chip have to be in it? that annoying little rat thing! not only that but pretty much everybody (especially Big the Cat) on that list makes me furious, and im a Sonic fan! I just want the core characters, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy & Eggman.

  • How are Amy and Dr. Robotnik (I refuse to call him by that ridiculous other name) core characters? Robotnik wasn’t playable until (I think) Sonic Adventure 2 and Amy isn’t even in a Sonic Game until that Sonic racing game on the 32X.

    Also, Needlemouse is just Hedgehog/Echidna in Japanese so I don’t know what the hell Mr. Needlemouse is.
