Many have been waiting for a new Sonic the Hedgehog title from Sonic Team, who’s last major title in the series was Sonic Lost World on the Nintendo Wii U (released on Steam in 2015). While many of us expected Sonic Team to be making a new game, it was officially announced today that Sonic Team is at work on a new Sonic title.
Famitsu: Finally, our last question – please tell us about Sonic’s future.
Iizuka: We at Sonic Team – are developing a completely new game, as well as developing a full movie, actively done by Sony Pictures, and animation on Sonic Boom. We are also ready to improve sponsor ties.
The most important thing is not the fact the series survived for 25 years, but how many games was developed.
Our goal – add something new and overcome any potential hardships.
While the translation is in-progress, it is important to see Sonic Team publicly talking about a new Sonic title and hopefully we will be seeing more on the game in July.
