Sonic the Hedgehog’s 25th anniversary took place this week. A special event was held in Japan earlier today in Tokyo to celebrate, with Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka in attendance. Iizuka was able to announce “officially” that a new game is happening, and it’ll be out next year. Specifics will be shared during the anniversary party on July 22.

Aside from that, SEGA also shared a bunch of concept art from the Sonic series of various characters through the ages. We’ve rounded up those images below.

Level-5 wrapped up a live stream to promote its upcoming Vision event a short while ago. Aside from confirming new Layton and Inazuma games, CEO Akihiro Hino also talked about a few other titles.

First, Hino touched on The Snack World, which is still on the way. New concept art was shown – see the gallery below.

Hino also briefly discussed Level-5’s new cross-media project while showing concept art as well. He said, “you won’t go to space, this will be a very familiar story. An academy drama… perhaps?” The project is said to be shaping up very nicely and Level-5 has great expectations for it.

Here are a couple of pieces of concept art:
