Even though he was creating blue hedgehog games for the best part of fifteen years, people still assume Yuji Naka hasn't had his fill of his most famous character just yet. It turns out he has.

Speaking to Siliconera, Mr Naka said:

Right now, I want to create new things. Even if I had the opportunity to create some kind of new Sonic game I think that's best kept within Sega.

With his newest project Ivy the Kiwi? garnering praise – not least from us here at Nintendo Life – it seems Mr. Naka may finally be ready to put his hedgehog days behind him. He's known to be developing a game based on an animal he "recently saw and found interesting". Considering the success of his hedgehog, which beat the armadillo and rabbit during the concept stages, the possibilities are mouthwatering.
