Don’t Expect More Games Like Sonic Generations

Sega producer Takashi Iizuka comments on the future of Sega’s mascot.

While speaking with Gamasutra, Sonic producer Takashi Iizuka said, “I would like to make a new standard Sonic, a modern Sonic if you will, in 2012 and beyond.”

Iizuka later went on to say that he thought that the recently released Sonic Generations was a good look at the highlights of Sonic’s 20 year history, but he doesn’t feel like that title represents the character’s future.

“There have been a lot of Sonic titles in the past, and I think, at this point, there's a pretty good idea of what a Sonic game should be like -- a fun, frenetic action game. As I said, I feel the need to surprise the fans in new and innovative ways, but I don't want to do anything to depart from that style. The color powers in Colors are a good example of that.”

So what does the future hold for Sonic? It sounds like Iizuka wants to take the character in a new direction, which is fine with us.
