Since Temple Run hit it big, the mobile markets have been flooded with endless runners—games in which the player jumps, rolls, slides, turns and otherwise guides an auto-running hero through treacherous terrain. When's gaming's original running hero going to get his due? According to LinkedIn job listings uncovered over at The Sonic Stadium (via Pocket Gamer), Sonic's endless-running debut may come sooner than we think. Update: Sega has confirmed that Sonic Dash is indeed a new mobile Sonic game in development.
The listings come from SEGA's UK-based Hardlight studio, focused on creating games for mobile and portable platforms. You might know them from Sonic Jump, the level-based jumping game that seemed ill-suited to our hero's particular talents.
