Core Sonic Team Working On New Sonic Game That’s Not Sonic Boom, Shown Later This Year

Takashi Iizukahas revealed that the core Sonic team is currently working on a brand new Sonic title for unspecified platforms. The game will retain the original Sonic look and the mechanics we’ve grown to love over the years and will be showcased later this year.

“At the moment, the core Sonic team at SEGA is working on a new title that will use the traditional look and mechanics of the series, which will get more details later during the year.”

“At the same time, Big Red Button, an entirely new studio, is working on a new version of the entire game universe, called Sonic Boom, which will use an entirely new aesthetic and is designed to accompany the delivery of a new range of toys and a new cartoon series.”

  1. I do believe this is what you would call a ‘contingency plan’, otherwise known as a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card.

    I am curious. It may feature at this year’s E3. Who knows?

    1. Agree. Truth be told, I’ve been a sonic fan for 25 years and I remember getting the first version of sonic the hedgehog for the sega master system. Since then I’ve seen the rise of fame and excellent quality of games ending with the sega mega drive (genisis in the states). Since then the franchise has gone from bad to worse. This is not an exageration. it is what it is.

      What scares me though is the younger next generation of gamers coming up that don’t have that point of reference and somehow manage to see coherancy in these latest ‘attempts’ of sonic games. nintendo doesn’t know what potential they’ve got in this franchise and it saddens me to no end that they will probably let it sit as is.

      Sonic boom made knuckles bigger and wrapped bandages around a few characters… ahh…hmmmmm. Changing the image of the characters isn’t going to improve anything. The franchise needs new management people and new direction. No more on-rails bullshit with limited roaming areas. Free roaming mario 64 style game would put it back to where it should be.

      You want inspiration, story, energy, check out Sonic SATAM on youtube. You want interesting characters, there you go.

    1. No thats Sonic Boom. The first game was Mario and Sonic at the 2014 Olympic Games, the second game was Sonic Lost World and the third is Sonic BOOM

      1. They said it would be exclusive for Nintendo only so Sonic Boom is not one of them considering it is coming for the other 2 aswell…

      2. What a shitty franchise. 2 Sonic games in one year? You imbeciles are already being served 1 mediocre pile of cum a year!

        1. Look who’s talking. Two more Assassin’s Creed coming this year and its barely a year after Black Flag which was barely a year after AC3.

          So have fun with those piles of turd hypocrite.

          1. You’re simply pathetic. I could care less for the Assassins Creed franchise. I don’t even play it! Look who’s the Sonic-dick-riding imbecile now!

            1. I bet you are just a little kid just trying to sound smarter and more like an adult by using explicit words when in reality you are just sounding childish and down right stupid.

              Shut up and go watch your Dora the explorer.

    2. I thought Sonic Boom was the last one. Sonic Lost World, Mario & Sonic Sochi Olympics , and Sonic Boom.

              1. *looks at your name*
                I don’t “assume” shit, I “know” shit.
                EVEN MORE THAN GOD HIMSELF.
                Not only that, you don’t believe in yourself? Do want me to the play the song “I believe” for you to help your self-esteem?

                1. Yeah, great argument, by the way, why stay anonymous? Are you so insecure about the real you that you shun you’re real self? I mean, this is the way you look at it so it should clearly define why you stay anon.

                  Why dont you go and play that song foryourself since you clearly dont have self-esteem.

                  Right?

                  1. Why am I anon? Because it allows me too. Are you so dumb that you can’t realize that? Are you so ironically butthurt that you have to change the subject to your personal problems about my name?

                    I as well don’t need to play the song for myself because I believe in myself, you don’t seem too because your here arguing with me about your self-esteem and instead insult me on my self-esteem to shield yourself from the impending butthurt meaning that your hurting your argument, thus making it less effective to make me shut up, or you really do have doubts on your own self-esteem.

                    My, my, this tea is absolutely quaint. Anyways, would you like to drink your coffee now sir, while its hot and possibly burns your tongue, or would you like to wait for it to cool and have a civilized conversation that’s not about your baseless insults or unexplainable butthurt?

                    1. LMFAO I love the ammount of irony in you. You attack me (which I dont mind at all,) assume shit, actually think what you spew is full of glorious truth , but apparently everything only applies to everyone but you.

                      XD you delusional dick, it wouldnt surprise me if youre some lonely loser in real life with no prospect, keep telling yourself you actually have high self esteem, and what you say actually matters, cause your little psycho babble doesnt translate well online.

                      Serious dude, someone really did some work on you and I actually feel bad for you…. just a little though. XD

                    2. I love it that you’re so obsess with me. XD you do really need that much attention? If i were you I would ask your parents why you’re so needy and damaged, it might help you with you’re low self-esteem.

                1. You must be new here, youll understand how much shit hes full of when you see more of his “contributions” to the site. I know for a fact that im not the only one that laughs at this self title position he claims to have.

                    1. Oh I have a life, and youre one to talk, youre one of the biggest fantards in this site. You comment some of the most idiotic dribble Ive seen on this site and ive been visiting since 2011.

                    2. He failed because he completely ignored my point and changed the subject to me. You fail too

                    3. I ignored youre point? What point were you even trying to make? You simply implied I had no life and I clearly said I did. What else do you want? My life story? Accomplishment? Have you become so involve in what I do that you wish to know more? I mean, you’re clearly defending an idiot online that pretends to be at the top of this hierarchy that his delusional mind made up and places everyone in here at the bottom.

                      He doesnt even own what he claims to support.

                  1. Man you really give God a bad name and tarnish the respect of our lord.

                    Can’t wait for “God” to unleash plans upon you.

                    1. Read the bibble little man, god is on some crazy shit. I dont tarnish his name, his name has always been tarnish.

                      The man is a freak that gets his kicks out of idiots like you suffering.

                  2. Why dont you actually read the Bible, and see things from a different perspective, other than, imprecise human logic?

                    1. Oh you mean the bible that tells you to kill your own kids if they dont belive in god? or kill your own wife or brother if they work on the sabbath? The bible is nothing but a book written by people to suppress anyone that believes in it.

                      If you want to live your life by it, so be it, but nothing changes the fact that there is no evidence that this was written by a so call deity.

      1. But seriously guys, shpuld we count the Mario & Sonic game as the Nintendo exclusive, especially knowing that M&S games ALWAYS come to Nintendo (and only Nin.) consoles.

      2. But seriously guys, shpuld we count the Mario & Sonic game as the Nintendo exclusive, especially knowing that M&S games ALWAYS come to Nintendo (and only Nin.) consoles.

      1. Right since Sega knows Sonic does better on Nintendo platforms (which has been proven many times before), I wouldn’t hold my funky ass breath which is yours after licking your own ass as means to shower since you’re poor as fuck for wasting money on dated garbage like 360.

        1. It’s a shame really, Nintendo’s devs are really creative I don’t know why they are so hesitant of making use of the think.

          I really don’t care anymore, it’s not stopping Nintendo from creating fantastic games on the system, and as long their games support the pro-controller, it’s fine in my eyes.

        1. Dude, SHUT THE FUCK UP. I am a Christian, and I realise that people like you are the reason why Christianity is hated so much on YouTube. Good people go to Heaven, bad people go to Hell, we KNOW. Now stop embarrassing my religion. Please.

      1. Pretty sure Nintendo is buying Sega and platinum may e this game well be a game they well use to announce that buyout? They should also buy Atari while their at it, make the centipede, pong, and astroid engines open source (or something to that effect) and reboot rollercoaster tycoon 3 as. HD exclusive to Wii U (would sell like crack) omfg to use the game pad to build coasters?! Could also use. “panoramic view” to ride the coaster, even add support to 3D TVs …..maybe wishfull thinking, but they did say they were thinking about buying some companies as part of their business reinventing

        1. Buy Capcom too! The masters of classics. It’s hard to name all of their arcade masterpieces. Imaging a gunsmoke remake??? Fucking loved that game!

  2. I’m guessing Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 3 or Sonic The Hedgehog 5 exclusively for the Wii U…

        1. Obviously the new Sonic game is coming to PS4 and XBOX One, but if the leak from earlier in the year is correct, it is also coming to Wii U.

      1. Retard here in full denial of Wii U getting the good shit while XBetamax One burns with DRM and Kinect and PS4 playing waiting game for the real MGS5 game and long overdue Kingdom Hearts 3.

  3. Most likely coming to wii u ps4 and xbox one(maybe ps3 and 360 as well) Sonic was never about pushing hardware power, and none of his games last gen have ever max the power of a system

    1. You’re kidding, right? Unleashed’s Hedgehog Engine was full of state-of-the-art dynamic terrain loading, graphic effects and physics objects and as a result had massive frame rate issues on both systems. Luckily Generations was on PC.

      1. I’m talking about going full out on details, Sonic has never used a systems power at MAX he has only used some, yes the games look detail but he has truly pushed any system.

    2. It’s not coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 sadly. if you go check on wikipedia you’ll see that SEGA Stopped creating Sonic Games in 2012. Meaning their last Sonic Game was Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed…

          1. My fucking god, he does!!! Oh my god, that’s what he looks like, LOL! He looks like a foureyed virgin freak

              1. I just disliked his little rant, and NC, I suggest you do too, he said Metroid Prime trilogy was “overated” do with it as you wish

                  1. For the most part don’t worry. If you know ice you’d know that he’s trolling, still in his videos. It gets obvious when he talks about COD and even before that when talking about Eternal Darkness, if he found Eternal Darkness overrated then why would he have it as his Gravitar icon. But still, WHO COULD OF GUESSED THAT’S WHAT HE LOOKED LIKE!!!

                  1. What a retard, now we now what he looks like, and he LOOKS LIKE HE IS 14!!! Not to mention what a bunghole his room is amiright?

                    1. And it’s pronounced PRIME not PRUM…

                      His insults makes me mad as hell…

                    2. Indeed…

                      And you are right, it felt so good to give a thumbs down…

                    3. Like I said, thumbs down his video, and CoD Black Ops, really? they already made Black Ops 2, MW3 and Ghosts and he is only complaining about it… now? Why don’t we just say Pac-Man is overated while we are at it,

                      BTW, I am surprised he is complaining about only 2 Nintendo games, with his little outbursts, youd expect there to be more

                      but jesus, he is an ugly little cunt isn’t he? And to think MNN was being trolled by a butthurt, eczema-ridden, squeaky voiced ugly son of a bitch like him? I blame society

                    4. I will make a NC channel soon and of course give him a little trouble from time to time…

                      Join me if you like when I do…

                    5. Why so then we make everyone think Youtube is just a place for people to whine and bitch?

                    6. The reason you can’t is because your the ugly dork. You mention his name all the time when he has been gone for months now and now we want to see you. You don’t got the balls to show yourself.

                    7. mkay I’m a dork, boohoo youve freaking changed me, guess you won so sod off yeah?

                    8. Well if your going to talk shit about it, how about you make a video response but we all know he will destroy you because for one you can’t even tell a joke. Its almost like you haven’t ever been social in your life and you can’t understand. its sad, he is joking and he doesn’t seem to be hiding it either in the video.

                    1. Thanks but only morons vent their feelings on YouTube, if I resort to icys level i will be no better than him or that angry ginger kid

                1. HAHA oh my gosh guys! Can’t you tell its a joke!

                  You guys must be really bad at social situations. Also if you have enough balls you show your face on camera and make a video response to him.

                    1. Ugh, not even worth the effort, besides it’s more foolish to take to YouTube just to retaliate at someone or something, Coppercab anyone?

                  1. Stop defending that troll that only makes you look like a total attention-whore. Are you obsessed with creating video responses. Why don’t you show your face on one defending the point of view of ice? Oh yeah, now i know why… “you have no balls… duh

                  1. I also think he’s being sarcastic and is kidding.

                    The real Ice is a frustrated-out of his mind Nintendo fan, this could be him. He owns the best games. Eternal Darkness, RE4, Xenoblade, MPTrilogy, etc.

                    You can’t own all those epic games and seriously call them overrated… Can he? O.o

                2. There is an iceazeama on miiverse, before the 3DS was integrated, so this guy owns a wiiU. I think it’s him because he talks the same way. This guy sure owns a lot of consoles and games that he hates.

                  1. Well you can tell he just feels betrayed by nintendo, a lot of trolls here love the nintendo of old but hate what they have become.

                    Personally I love nintendo for who they were, im am however disappointed with the Recent Nintendo.

                  2. For the most part don’t worry. If you know ice you’d know that he’s trolling, still in his videos. It gets obvious when he talks about COD and even before that when talking about Eternal Darkness, if he found Eternal Darkness overrated then why would he have it as his Gravitar icon. But still, WHO COULD OF GUESSED THAT’S WHAT HE LOOKED LIKE!!!

                    1. Looks like a normal person to me. A lot younger than I woulda imagined, plus his mii didn’t look like that. Then again it’s not like it matters what he looks like, we wanna see girls. Wheres that kirusu chick lol.

                3. For the most part don’t worry. If you know ice you’d know that he’s trolling, still in his videos. It gets obvious when he talks about COD and even before that when talking about Eternal Darkness, if he found Eternal Darkness overrated then why would he have it as his Gravitar icon. But still, WHO COULD OF GUESSED THAT’S WHAT HE LOOKED LIKE!!!

              1. You can tell he says that cod black ops is a real game and you should play that and also i know for a fact he loves eternal darkness and xenoblade. This is funny.

                  1. This is hilarious! I totally believe everything he has been saying now. The people hate him so much they can’t even understand a joke thats right in front of their face!

                    1. I don’t see a joke, where is the punchline, where is the satire, all I see is a rashy little virgin whine about games he has bought, and what is with the part about “The Last of Us” he is making fun of it because the lead character is a lesbian? yeah that is so funny it makes Comedy Central look like shit

                1. THe part where he is talkin shit about ED proves he is jokin, i mean he was the one cryin here for sequel all the time.

                  1. You can tell because at the end of the video when he is about to show cod, he says, here is a real game.

                    ITS OBVIOUS!

  4. I believe it will come to WiiU,Ps4,One and it will follow Unleashed/generations gameplay formula or it will try to improve Lost worlds gameplay mechanics, just a few safe guesses

  5. It has GOT to be Sonic Adventures 3 with an expansive and amazing Chao garden?!?!?!?! I can’t see myself purchasing anything else made by the Sonic Team…. seriously, they have gone so down hill, I can’t trust what they do.

    It’ll be interesting to compare Big Red Button’s Sonic to Sonic Team’s Sonic and see who is more worthy of making Sonic games.

  6. praise jesues christ i belive in god and his spirit is with use all he will save your sole he has saved me and he will save hummanity from evil and the devil and he loves use verry much in his own way in jesues christ are lords amen

  7. god is coming to save are souls with his hollyspirit in christ are lord god has special plans for him in heaven where we will be born again in his holly spirit god will save our souls

  8. game consoles have no soul to save game consoles are not why we live we live for jesues we live to worship him and care about people and not just yourself god is the way to heaven god loves you and cares about you in christ name jesus christ

  9. Phew, luckily this exclusivity deal with Nintendo expires after Sonic Boom! After this traumatising Sony-less time they can now finally go back to making games for our beloved Playstation!

    1. You realize out of all the Sonic games released within the past decade, there have been only 3 Sonic games on Sony consoles (in the main series): Sonic 06, Unleashed, and Generations. There have been 8 main series Sonic games on Nintendo consoles. Sonic kind of belongs on Nintendo consoles, not Sony consoles.

      1. I realize this isnt the case for Sonic, but for every other third party under the sun, who are ready to go bankrupt for their beloved sony. And look at Sonic 06, Sega tried to move even sonic away from nintendo consoles…

  10. I done mind if its keeping the game play of Sonic Lost World. The only thing bad about the game was the level design. If they do a great job on the levels then it will be a fantastic Sonic Game. Perhaps make them revolve around speed a bit more since reviewers constantly complain about it being slow.

        1. nah, Sickr banned him and if he didn’t find an outlet for his trollitude soon, his brain would implode

            1. Come on, isn’t it obvious, why else would he suddenly disappear, trolling this site was his life and Sickr killed it, and do you really think this is a joke? how is it funny, well it’s sad and it’s so sad, it’s…. funny

              1. I don’t know, maybe it is the same reason why Pinwheel, Adarazz, you thought etc left. Iceazeama has been here causing mayhem for how long? And now Sickr decides to ban him.

                If you have a mind of a troll, you would see why it’s funny :P

                1. eh, either way, it’s way fun to watch him whine, how old is he like 14? and to think Sickr was bested by a prepubescent pipsqueak

      1. Yeah at least they are trying…

        btw I love your Gravatar. I like how the ooze monster wants to be in what appears to be Jill’s selfie lmao.

              1. lol whatever, dude you still go on this site? this site sucks ass. also you’re never on your PS3 or 360 anymore bro.

      2. Since when did the Sonic hate train start up again?

        ???: Lost World

        And ONE game is enough to make the hate train begin again after the great Sonic Colors and Generations.

                    1. Well I am getting paid tomorrow, but I’m gonna wait until Mario kart 8 comes out that way by then, I’ll buy a lot of games, eshop cards and accessories.

                    2. Haha nice, But if I were you I would wait for a price drop or something. I haven’t played my wii u in forever lol, been focusing on much more important things right now, lol. Hopefully they drop that damn tablet.

                    3. Either way, I’m still going to get one whether if there is a price drop or not. Nintendo better have a MK8 bundle here though.

                      But yeah I agree, I’ve been and will be focusing on more important things now. At this point, what ever happens to the gamepad happens, and as long there’s pro-controller support, I’ll be happy :)

                1. She’s fine, I’ve been dating her for about 5 months now, how about you text me instead of talking to me on this site?

                    1. lol thanks man. Because of it it’s kinda hard getting good grades in my classes i’ll tell you that.

  11. lol if that next game sells most on wii u than the rest of consoles. this happened before with a few titles such as rayman legends.

  12. Just thought I’d share this with you guys. For my speech class, I’m making a persuasive speech on why Nintendo is important to the video game industry.

      1. Sure, but I’m still making the outline and I won’t be presenting it until 2 weeks from now. And yes, the Xbots will definitely start an uproar with what I have in mind.

    1. I’ve seen your Youtube channel and honestly a few games automatically make you hate Nintendo? Wow, you are pathetic.

    2. …did you not just ripped on Sonic like 17 comments ago?

      Like I said, you’re a double standard bastard who’s super late on his CAT scan appointment after your crackhead junkie of a mother dropped you for the 50th time.

    1. Dude Sonic 06 is NOT SA3! Sonic 06 was just a new type of game that would change almost everything in the Sonic Series, it was suppose to be the new entry to the series! And Sonic Unleashed was suppose to be Sonic Adventure 3 as it says on wikipedia! So It would make no sense to SEGA Develop an SA3 Game after a game that is MENTIONED to be SA3! Sonic 06 is NOT the Sequel to SA2.
      Do you know what the word “Sequel” means? No?

      Definition of the word Sequel:

      1. Something that follows; a continuation.
      2. A literary, dramatic, or cinematic work whose narrative continues that of a preexisting work.
      3. A result or consequence. See Synonyms at effect.

  13. god is the way and the light he loves you and cares about you and loves you and you are his lamb and jesues is your shepered he loves you a lot and has a rapture for disbelivers who dont belive in him and you wil go to HELL

  14. social reject none christains burn in hell as well god will send you to hell for torment in his rapture for life you will feal great pain and depreshion that is a burning fire for your enternal torment

    1. Shame on you, ‘lukewarm christian’ will suffer worsen than the non-ones.
      “but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”

  15. i see jesue christ in my life i hope you like your life? my life wont die when i die i have a lie with god in heaven i am a christain you have a rapture ready for you in hell

  16. i have a iternal life with god the farther in life with my friends and your friends have a rapure to be sent to hell in

    1. He’ll is the grave of mankind, according to the Bible. It’s where all of humankind is going. Now, quit spamming religious information on a video game website. Go talk to people if you want to talk to them.

    1. It’s just a racing game. Doesn’t really matter if there is voice chat or not especially when screaming little kids will be around.

      1. Friend room like the wii version? We always used skype to race and it’s ever funner then without one. I guess, gamepad is truly gimmick. That mic is rarely used.

        1. Hopefully E3 will finally shed some light as to wether the u pad will stay a gimick or actually be put to use…
