UPDATE: Turns out that someone at Nintendo Germany screwed up. The executive editor of IGN just tweeted that he re-confirmed with SEGA that the third mystery title won’t release in 2013. Guess we’ll have to make due with only two new Sonic games on Nintendo platforms this year, unless you count the 3DS version of Lost World as a seperate game. Sorry for the confusion folks.
It was only a couple of weeks ago when Nintendo announced that they made an exclusive partnership deal with SEGA for three brand new Sonic games exclusive to Nintendo platforms. The first two of these games being Mario and Sonic at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games and the recently revealed Sonic Lost World, both bound to be released later this year. Of course this leaves one mystery game yet to be announced.
Turns out we may not have to wait that long to know what it is. According to Sonic Stadium, Nintendo Germany spilled today in a press release that all three exclusives will be released this year. That sure is a lot of Sonic games for Nintendo haters to be pissed about in a single year. Of course this also means we probably won’t have to wait that long to know what this incredibly mysterious and secret game is. E3 is just around the corner, so it wouldn’t be surprising at all if it’d be announced there.

Of course we didn’t forget about Gamescom currently going on in Germany, sporting new demos for all three versions of Sonic Generations as well as a new demo for Mario and Sonic’s latest (friendly) battle to the death.
Courtesy of forum member TimmiT, we have a few more details about changes in the games along with extra gameplay videos including a full run of Modern Sonic’s City Escape. With all the tasty morsels of media beginning to spill, we advise not watching the videos if you want to keep the gameplay unspoiled.
