Sonic Team boss Takashi Iizuka has said in a recent interview with Retro Gamer that he wouldn’t mind remaking fan-favourite Sonic Adventure. He told the magazine that he can now see the rough edges in Sonic’s 3D debut and that it would be fun to rework it with modern day hardware. Sonic Adventure made its debut on the SEGA Dreamcast.
“It was the first highspeed 3D action game that also featured a scenario highlighted with six different stories, the A-life Chao, six unique styles of gameplay – it is a unique game offering even 20 years after its release. At the time, it also wasn’t just a solitary software release, it was the title to bring people to the Dreamcast and we were given the budget to make something to showcase the hardware. However, it was the very first 3D game that we worked on and looking at it now I can see the rough edges it has, which really makes me want to remake it again.”
