Sonic and the Black Knight Nintendo Power

Details for the sequel to Sonic and the Secret Rings will be in the September issue of Nintendo Power.

After an image of the cover of Nintendo Power was uploaded to NeoGAF last week, no one was completely sure if it was real or fake. This morning, Sega has officially announced Sonic and the Black Knight for Wii, coming Spring 2009. The game is a quasi-sequel to Sonic and the Secret Rings, which was released for Wii in early 2007 to average reviews, but great sales.

“After the success of Sonic and the Secret Rings we’re delighted to announce a second title in the Storybook Series,” said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director, SEGA Europe, “Following Sonic on his way to knighthood will excite players of all ages.”
