LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sonic the Hedgehog is rolling with Nintendo.

Sega says it will exclusively release the next three games starring the popular blue critter on Nintendo platforms. The first title will be called "Sonic Lost World" and is set for release on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS later this year.

Sega of America President John Cheng says "Sonic Lost World" will not be a reiteration of past "Sonic" games. He says the new title will introduce new gameplay and enemies.

The original fast-paced side-scrolling "Sonic the Hedgehog" debuted in 1991. The twirling, ring-hoarding hedgehog became Sega's mascot and a video-game icon rivaling the likes of Mario and Pac-Man.

Sega says more than 75 million games and smartphone apps featuring Sonic have been sold worldwide.
