Sonic Colours, the latest sonic title from SEGA and Sonic Team, will not disappoint fans of the Blue hedgehog, producer Takashi Iizuka has told

Asked at a recent press junket if Colours would get trapped in the Sonic Cycle (great hope eventually turns to massive disappointment) - Iizuka said the team is confident it has "nailed" the gameplay.

"For this title in particular, the team is confident that this is a game everybody can really enjoy," Iizuka told "That's why we've offered a lot of hands-on for E3, and on this occasion as well. It's something that the team is really confident from the gameplay side. It's something that, this time, the team thinks they've nailed it - it's definitely not going through the Sonic cycle!"

Sonic Colours is scheduled for release later this year on Wii and Nintendo DS. You'll find hands-on impressions right here.
