|"Next Wave: Super Sonic"|
US-publication EGM learns of a new Sonic the Hedgehog game and speculates what it might be. Their vague description suggests this is Sonic X-treme, claiming it to be a 3D side-scrolling action game using pre-rendered character sprites for the Sega Saturn. A port of Sonic the Fighters being explicitly ruled out, although the 3D model they use in this article came from a prototype of that game. This article was published before E3 1996, when X-treme was revealed to the public.
