We’ve already discussed how Project Needlemouse will feature SEGA’s renown mascot, Sonic, on his own. What seems to have come out now, however – thanks to some internet domain name investigations – is that Needlemouse could be in fact Sonic The Hedgehog 4.

The source of the speculation is the registration of the domain sonicthehedgehog4.com. As discussed by Destructoid, the domain has been snapped up by someone called Brandon Klein. Looking closer, Klein’s email address is linked to another Brandon, this time Brandon Laurino. The same Brandon Laurino who just so happens to work for SEGA’s online division.

We find out more next week when the lid is completely lifted on what Needlemouse actually is. Feel free to add your own flavour of speculation below.
