According to an interview with Famitsu, Sonic Team’s head Takashi Iizuka confirmed that they are working on a new Sonic game. “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.”
Sonic will be celebrating their 25th anniversary and in the past, SEGA has been dropping hints about a new game that is in the works but it is only now that it has been confirmed. We’re not sure what we can expect from the new game, but as Iizuka mentions, it looks like it will be an all-out effort which includes a movie and an animated show.
In any case the 25th anniversary party will be kicking off on the 22nd of July so maybe we will know more by then, so check back with us for the details.
