Sonic Generations nostalgias its way onto 3DS November 22nd

I'm actually pretty interested in Sonic Generations, and while we knew that it was coming to 3DS for a while, now we have a concrete date: November 22nd.
I'm still a little confused that Sega is including levels from games as recent as Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Colors, but if they take the best elements from those games and leave out the bad (i.e. Unleashed was mostly bad, Colors was mostly good) Sonic Generations might be the "greatest hits" collection the series has needed for years. In any case the 3DS game is an entirely different animal than its home console brethren, and as long as it's like the awesome Sonic Rush titles for the DS, then count me in.
SEGA’s much loved mascot Sonic the Hedgehog™ makes his way onto Nintendo 3DS for the very first time as part of the celebrations for his 20th anniversary. Speeding through many levels designed exclusively for the Nintendo system, Sonic Generations™ allows fans to play as both Classic and Modern Sonic across a range of iconic and memorable levels – all re-imagined for a completely new experience. Sonic Generations for Nintendo 3DS launches on 22nd November in North America.
ABOUT Sonic Generations
Sonic Generations is the much hyped about video game to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 20thAnniversary, delivering the definitive gaming experience for Sonic fans old and new. Set across three defining eras from 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog video game history, the instantly recognizable environments of Sonic Generations have been re-built in stunning HD and are now playable in both classic side scrolling 2D from 1991, as well as modern 3D style found in Sonic’s most recent adventures. Each incarnation of Sonic in Sonic Generations comes complete with its trademark special move, Spin Dash and Spin Attack for Classic Sonic, and the Homing Attack and Sonic Boost for Modern Sonic. Sonic’s universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power creates ‘time holes’ which pull him and his friends back through time. Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic must team up to defeat this strange new enemy, save their friends, and find out who really is behind this diabolical deed.
