billy hatcher and the giant egg

SEGA of America today announced Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg, a new platform game exclusively for the Nintendo GameCube. Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg is currently in development under the direction of SEGA's renowned Yuji Naka, the creator of the Sonic The Hedgehog series. The first all-new platform game and character from Yuji Naka and Sonic Team since the SEGA Saturn era, Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg is the story of a young boy who must save a once magical kingdom from the clutches an evil King who threatens to rule with an everlasting night. Gamers must learn to use the powers of a legendary suit and control magical eggs to restore light to the kingdom.

A vibrant, lightning-fast 3-D platformer, Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg challenges gamers to hatch dozens of magical creatures from special eggs as they explore themed, carnival-esque environments on their quest to save the kingdom. Playing as Billy Hatcher, players will roll the eggs though the world, using them to solve puzzles, fight enemies, and even ultimately hatch magical creatures that enhance their abilities, adding a unique strategic twist to the fast action. "Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg is pure Sonic Team magic," said Mike Fischer, VP of Marketing, SEGA of America. "A dizzying blend of fast action, hypnotic gameplay and one-of-a-kind characters, Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg is, without a doubt, the next big thing from the legendary Sonic Team."

Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg is slated for release in Fall 2003.
