Though we live in a time of seemingly infinite video game possibilities, there are still a few ideas that have yet to see the light of day such as: a fully-3D Pokemon console RPG, a decent adaptation of the hit ’90s TV show Home Improvement and, of course, a Sonic/Deus Ex crossover game.
While there is no guarantee those first two will ever happen, a recent Twitter exchange has brought us closer to that last one than many would have ever thought possible.
It all started when the Sonic Twitter account decided to post a fun little chart yesterday to help fans discover what their Sonic name would be:
