Whirling to a DS near you, Nintendo Power has finally given up the goods regarding Sonic's first RPG, originally reported back in August. Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, produced by BioWare (of Mass Effect fame), has finally been announced. It features 11 party members--all your favorites--including Tails, Amy, Knuckles, Big the Cat and, of course, the main man himself: Sonic. It purports to be a turn-based RPG utilizing the unique touch screen ability of the DS.
The story so far: Sonic is having a well-deserved vacation after scrambling Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik for the umpteenth time. Tails gives him a ring and lets him know that Knuckles has been kidnapped by a new group called the "Marauders." The interesting twist is that this is not an evil scheme hatched by Robotnik, but the entirety of the plot remains a mystery.
