That’s right! It’s twenty years to the day since Dr Ivo Robotnik made his debut performance in Sonic the Hedgehog 1 in 1991. SEGA have not forgotten this, and there’s some exciting news as a result of it! Well, I think they are under the impression that they are celebrating That Hedgehog’s debut, but we all know that besides flickies, the good doctor was the only other main Sonic character who appeared on that same day!! 😀
Eggman has his new style look – with millitary jacket. I’m sure we all love both looks and agree that he does look good in Sonic 4, but I would have loved to see his big yellow collars again. Ahh well – Here is our first peek!

Doesn’t he look good? And his collars are cleverly suggested by his big buttons. 🙂 Nice classic ship too! What fun!
That’s right, Eggman and Sonic fans alike! SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 4 is here after a 16 year wait!! A new mini-site has been launched and reveals that there are just two characters – Sonic is one, the other is locked. Sonic’s Bio reveals:
“Our Legendary hero returns! With the Death Egg finally destroyed, and Angel Island back in the sky, Sonic decides it’s time to take a break and heads off to explore a new territory on his own. However unbeknownst to Sonic, Eggman has also survived their last encounter, and has begun taking measures to rid himself of our hero. Armed with his signature Speed, super Spin Dash – and powerful Homing Attack, Sonic is ready for an all-new adventure!”
And so… Eggman is confirmed in the game! He appears to be the main villain! He is back after the defeat of the legendary Death Egg! WHAT COULD be more exciting for fans of Robotnik and Sonic!?
The one burning question now is – Is Eggman classic or new style? Or different again? Sonic has his green eyes and longer legs (New Style) so that could mean a new style Eggman – but not necessarily… We shall have to excitedly wait and see!
Our final note is that the game is for Xbox live arcade and WiiWare. Not for a handheld. This means great resolution graphics to enjoy 2D Sonic and Eggman in a new and exciting way!
What is Project Needlemouse? An Eggman Chaos made Needlemouse banner.
Sega have just posted a new, ambiguous teaser trailer for a new “2D adventure” and as if gold rings, drilling sounds, jumping sounds, and a winged ring shilouette weren’t enough, It’s called NEEDLEMOUSE for goodness sake! That can only mean one thing – THAT HEDGEHOG! But where the blue one goes, a certain doctor should not be too far away – and I don’t mean Doctor Who!
So how does Doctor Eggman fit into the puzzle? If at all *shivver*? Will he be new style, or maybe classic style? Will the game be 3d, but with a fixed camera angle, or completely 2D and drawn? all this reamains to be announced by SEGA – who seems to be back on form with their original logo and SE-GA jingle, and it’s excrutiatingly exciting!!
Today marks the start of our new poll! Which of these delightful character styles do you prefer? Both of these “Robotniks” were modeled and rendered by me, but which style would you like our Ivo to appear as?
Nice to see you.
