It’s been a rough few years for Sonic the Hedgehog. Despite a number of major successes in the early ’90s, Sega’s mascot has fallen a bit out of favor with gamers, of late. Sega is trying to change that, however. According to the publisher, a new Sonic game is tentatively scheduled for 2017, but there are no further details at this time.
This fall will also see the release of Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice, a 3DS title based on the television series. While many fans remain critical of the show’s character designs, the new title does seem to be shaping up nicely. The game was supposed to ship last year, but Sega delayed the game, and recent comments seem to hint that the delay was intended for quality purposes. Hopefully the title will reflect Sega’s new mission statement regarding the character. We’ve embedded the game’s latest trailer below so you can judge for yourself!
More information on Sonic’s next adventure should be revealed at a special Sonic event that Sega will hold in San Diego on July 22. Stay tuned to Nintendojo for more information as it develops!
