Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka Has Confirmed The Development Of A New Sonic Game

An interview with Famitsu on Sonic‘s 25th anniversary has confirmed what fans have been speculating on all year. According to Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka, “we at Sonic Team are developing a completely new game”. Not more about the game was said, and by now, it was probably a given that this was the case. However, this is the first confirmation by SEGA.

Iizuka later said that “the most important thing is not the fact the series survived for 25 years, but how many games was developed”. He says that Sonic Team’s goal is to “add something new and overcome any potential hardships”.



  1. It’s about fucking time! After all the countless teases and tumors, one of the more trustworthy higher ups finally confirmed development of a new Sonic game.

        1. I know. But if wrote it the way he said it, I wasn’t sure if anyone would know what I meant haha. Plus, I’m not even sure how to spell it the way he said it. Tuma maybe?

  2. if they announce the game on 3 consoles, it will be a prefect sonic game this year that we ever wanted for a while. i swear if the anniversary title gets announce on Xbox ONE and PS4, this anniversary game will fail completely like sonic 06 for PS3 and Xbox 360 yeah. people wanted a new sonic formula and combine the elements between sonic adventure and sonic lost world.

      1. And how exactly did they keep on killing him? By letting players who play Mario, LOZ, and Pokemon games actually get to play a few Sonic titles, without buying a second system.

        Next you’ll be saying a crossover game with Mario and Sonic is pure sin, and they should as distant as possible. Seeing two major icons team up as equals is awesome! Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny, Homer and Peter, Nostalgia Critic and AVGN, Marvel and DC.

      2. nah its big red button fault not nintendo because nintendo did not made sonic boom ok there were just keeping him alive for there own special reason you know mario and sonic crossovers if nintendo did try to kill him then there will be no more crossovers for mario and sonic. however, big red button made sonic boom and they were behind the development.

  3. Sonic Adventure 3 Wii U/NX exclusive would be great. With Chao gardens and more care put into the levels than some of the Wii and Wii U exclusives… But I’m not gonna get my hopes up yet.

    1. It does say completely new game, not SA3 but I still wish for it >.> As regards for what system, I’d want cross system but it doesn’t regard me much as I can get it on anything

    1. Do you know how upset I would be if Sega localized the Tetris X Puyo Pop crossover as Mean Bean Machine 2 for a western release?

  4. But the next question is, will it be available for the Wii U or “NX” (will people who play Mario, LOZ, and Pokemon games be able to play this on their system)?

    1. Why? I shouldn’t be allowed to play the new Sonic game? Someone else who owns a Wii U or is planning to gex an NX shouldn’t be allowed to play the new Sonic game. We’re only good enough for Lost World and Rise of Lyric.

  5. ||After 2.21 cycles, the Segans are still making the same mistake, just switched their machines with Sonic…||

  6. Sad how far Sonic has gone downhill. There used to be a time where I’d gladly buy a Sonic title without even knowing anything about it. Lol, not anymore.
