Sonic and the Black Knight aimed at casual gamers

Posted on February 13, 2009 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii

SEGA has three significant titles planned for Wii owners coming up: The Conduit, MadWorld, and Sonic and the Black Knight. The Conduit and MadWorld will undoubtedly appeal to hardcore gamers, but Sonic and the Black Knight may be a different story. SEGA’s Tetsu Katano, who is part of the Sonic Team, said that the game is “aimed at a younger, more casual audience.”

“Sonic and the Black Knight is aimed at a younger, more casual audience. We’ve changed a lot of things, essentially. It’s thinking as children; approaching things from their point of view, thinking what they want to see. Sonic is kind of a cheeky, edgy character, and so we like seeing Sonic challenge new things all the time. The Wii is a big part of it, because it appeals to a wider range of people who maybe have not played a Sonic game before.”
