New Sonic Game Teased With Harry Potter Reference

    2016 marks the 25th anniversary of the iconic Sonic the Hedgehog series. Now, Sega has teased that, as was suggested earlier, a new Sonic "anniversary" game may be in the works. An image posted to the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account uses a meme and a Harry Potter reference to tease that "game development [is] in progress." 

Sega's Aaron Webber, who runs the at-times-wacky Sonic Twitter account, said in his own tweet that the blue squares in the image are "just for design." There is a hint "elsewhere," but Webber didn't say if this is in the image itself or somewhere else.
 If Sega is planning to officially announce a new Sonic game, the reveal could happen at the company's 25th anniversary party in San Diego at Comic-Con this summer. As announced previously, attendees will get an "exclusive first look at the future of Sonic." However, whether this means a new game reveal or something else remains to be seen.
