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?

    • 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.

                Also, I absolutely detest Sonic Boom! I don’t wanna hear another word about this farce! This can’t be the future of Sonic. They say that it isn’t replacing the main franchise, but we haven’t heard jack from SEGA about the future of the main franchise. Sonic Boom gets more hype than anything, for the simple purpose of trying to reel in easy money (with poor writing, bad characterization, and stupid jokes) and all the wrong fans, who don’t know jack about Sonic (other than being blue and fast), the same people who were completely absent for Sonic Adventure 1 & 2, and everything else before Sonic 2006.

    • 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.

  9. 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.

    • 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.
