A return for old-school Sonic would be nice

Sega has revealed that it has plans to release new Sonic the Hedgehog games next year, but we are left in the dark as to what systems the titles will be on.

In an interview with Toys 'N' Playthings, Sissel Henno - Head of Sega's brand licensing in Europe - said that as well as focusing on releasing toys and stationary accessories across Europe, there are plans to release digital games as well as a brand new physical game.

Similarly, we will also be growing the apparel, publishing and stationary categories. We will have several new digital titles launching as well as a new boxed game, so there will be plenty of opportunities to link marketing campaigns across games and merchandise.

In the meantime, we have Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed to look forward to on 3DS next on 16th November, and for the Wii U at launch in Europe. What are you hoping to see in the next Sonic game, and what would you like from the new digital titles?
