Status: Existence Unconfirmed

Sonic The Hedgehog: Awakening is an unreleased video game in the popular Sonic The Hedgehog franchise that was supposedly in development sometime between 2006-2009, and cancelled at an unknown date.[1] Because the game was cancelled before its announcement, and no physical proof of the game exists, the game's existence could be considered unconfirmed.

Currently, there are no known screenshots, videos, prototype builds or even concept art for this game. The only known official mention of this game is that it is credited on Pete Capella's website, who was the voice actor for Silver The Hedgehog from 2006 to 2009.[2] This would imply that the game was far enough into development to begin work on voice acting, but was subsequently cancelled during the recording period or shortly afterward, though no recordings have surfaced online.

Fan Speculation

This has led people to speculate what the game was going to be. Some speculate that it was going to be centred on Silver, as no other voice actor from the Sonic franchise has been credited for this game except for Pete. Another theory is that the game was going to tie into 2006's Sonic The Hedgehog (aka Sonic '06) in some way, seeing as that title was Silver's debut game. Some have theorised that it might have been a sequel to Sonic The Hedgehog that entered production near the end of Sonic '06 development as SEGA had high hopes for the game but cancelled due to 06's poor reception. A different speculation is that Sonic The Hedgehog: Awakening was simply the working title for a different Sonic game, though there's no real evidence as to what games it could be, other than that it couldn't be the games already credited on Pete Capella's website, which are Sonic '06, Sonic Rivals, and Sonic and the Secret Rings.
