During E3 2016, Sony announced that Crash Bandicoot would be returning in the form of a remastered release. However Crash Bandicoot won’t be the only classic video game animal that is returning, because it has recently been confirmed that we will be getting a new Sonic game too.
According to an interview with Famitsu, Sonic Team’s head Takashi Iizuka confirmed that they are working on a new Sonic game, which is music to the ears of millions of fans.
“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.”
This news comes just in time, because Sonic will be celebrating his 25th anniversary next month. In fact, SEGA has been dropping hints about a new game that is in the works right now, but it has only now been confirmed. It is too early to know what we can expect from the new game, but as Iizuka mentions, it looks like they will give it an all-out effort that includes a movie and an animated show. Let’s hope it is awesome.
