Just in time for the 30th anniversary
Next year is the 30th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog. So, what are the plans? For some time now, there's been a theory Sega could be reviving the Dreamcast title Sonic Adventure. Now, in the latest development, there's a rumour Sega Japan is preparing for a Sonic Adventure-themed music event, which is...
Expect a "big year"
In March, Sonic Team's Takashi Iizuka confirmed the development of the next entry in the mainline Sonic the Hedgehog series was officially underway. Since then, there's been no other information about this game. When Iizuka caught up with Game Informer at E3 2019 last week, he was queried about the next major entry in the...
Better than before
Sonic the Hedgehog has struggled to live up to expectations for a long time now. Unlike Nintendo's mascot, Mario, Sonic's adventures haven't always worked out, mostly because of his "gotta go fast" attitude and take on life. Fortunately, this all changed in 2017, when Christian Whitehead was given free run by Sega and...
Gotta go fast
If the video clips for Team Sonic Racing weren't already satisfying enough, the head of Sonic Team, Takashi Iizuka, has confirmed the next big entry in the mainline Sonic series is officially underway. The announcement was made during a panel at SXSW Gaming 2019. Other than this, no other information is currently known about the new...
Will "establish Los Angeles as the centralized hub for the global brand"
Sonic Team's Takashi Iizuka has relocated to North America to create a new "development hub" for Sonic the Hedgehog games, it has been revealed. Iizuka - who acted as producer on many recent Sonic titles before being sidelined by the externally-produced Sonic Boom series - has...
The Dreamcast port returns
Around the turn of the millennium when Sonic Team was in its prime with releases such as Sonic Adventure and Phantasy Star Online, Nintendo's Game Boy Advance was fortunate enough to receive a port of the Dreamcast title, ChuChu Rocket! Released in 2001 alongside the launch of Nintendo's latest portable system at the...
Onwards and upwards, we hope
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric on Wii U and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal were disappointments in multiple ways - the home console entry was panned by critics and the portable iteration seemed to be largely overlooked, and between them these game accompaniments to the series spin-off have delivered disappointi
Will it still hit WiiWare?
Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka has revealed that the follow-up to 2010 platformer Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 won't launch until 2012 at the earliest. Iizuka cited the anniversary celebrations surrounding Sonic Generations as one of the reasons we won't see the 2D game until next year: This year, 2011, is the...
Dare to dream
In a year seemingly packed full of anniversaries, yesterday marked 15 years since Sonic Team masterpiece NiGHTS into Dreams released on Sega Saturn, with only disappointing Wii follow-up NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams expanding the series' canon. In a recent interview with leading NiGHTS site NiGHTS into Dreams.com, former Sonic Team head...
Hedgehog still alive
With all the excitement around Sonic Generations and the blue hedgehog's upcoming 20th anniversary — that's 23rd June, of course — many players are wondering what will happen to the second instalment in SEGA's downloadable reimagining of the hedgehog's adventures. Last year's Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I came and went in a speedy blur, but since then we've heard nothing..
And the figures too
The Sonic Colours Special Edition with the Wisp figures is all well and good, but what it's really lacking is an awesome blue Classic Controller. Thankfully now gamers down under can grab themselves a branded Classic Controller when the game launches later this year. Retailer JB Hi-Fi has the bundle available for AU$89.00, pretty cheap compared to the AU$115 being asked for..
