Rumor: A Natal-compatible “Sonic Riders” game at E3?

June 2, 2010

E3 is getting closer and closer and with that an interesting rumor has surfaced, Joystiq reports that a Sonic game, most likely based on the Sonic Riders franchise will be compatible with Natal, here’s the gist of it:

On Sunday, June 13, Microsoft will host its Project Natal event — you know, the gala event with Cirque du Soleil? We’re betting we’ll get details on launch price and date for Project Natal (not to mention its real name) there, but ahead of that event we’ve got some interesting news on an upcoming Natal title, care of our Joystiq Superspy™.

We’re told that Sega is preparing an Xbox Live Arcade game for Project Natal, titled Sonic Free Riders. As you may have guessed, it’s a motion-compatible entry in Sega’s racing series. Players will supposedly steer an on-screen avatar via bodily movement, and will acquire weapons by reaching out toward the screen, and attack other racers by motioning towards them.

It all sounds very intuitive, but will it be fun? We’ll let you know in a few weeks when we touch down in L.A. for E3 2010.

This sounds all nice and all, but an XBLA title? Hmm…
