It is the thirtieth anniversary of Sonic, but the new video game developed by SEGA will be delayed until next year. Hedgehog fans will be able to practice their sprinter skills in Sonic Colors: Ultimate, the remastering that is scheduled for this year 2021. In this context, Takashi Iizuka, head of the Sonic Team, has stated that the next title will try to be as influential as Sonic Adventure was in its day.
“Sonic Adventure laid the foundation for 20 years of Sonic titles after its launch, so that in the same way, I really hope that this new video game that will be launched in 2022 places the pillars of the following future titles ”. That is the challenge that the studio has set itself, according to Iizuka’s statements on the Sonic Stadium site.
