Sonic Generations is your last chance to enjoy the franchise in its classic form.
That’s according to Sega producer Takashi Iizuka speaking to Gamasutra, saying he’d like to take the mascot into a new era. A modern Sonic of sorts.
“I would like to make a new standard Sonic, a modern Sonic if you will, in 2012 and beyond,” he told the industry site.
“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.”
It’s a fair decision, but let’s hope the new direction is worthy of the legendary Sonic.
